Car Show

SFIAS on Film

Car shows are difficult for me to photograph. Maybe because I'm not sure whether I'm shooting the cars, the crowds, or what. I just go into the show, check out the cars, take some photos, and when I get home, the photos just aren't very good.

At this last year's San Francisco International Auto Show, we spent an hour or two wandering around the day after Thanksgiving. I brought my Minolta SRT101, armed with some lenses (but using mostly the super-wide 20mm), and loaded with Ilford Delta 3200 film. Here are the best of the resulting photos.

about Branden Frederick

I am a photographer: I have fun taking photos, and I always have.

I've had a camera in my hand my whole life, a 110 camera as a kid, and the high school's 35mm SLR later. In 2008 I spent six months doing nothing but taking photos and loved it. From that point on I've had my camera surgically attached to my hand (I lie). I went digital in the year 2000, and I came back to film in 2013. My parents tell me my photos are "nice".
