Mini Photographic Shoot: Back to the 50's Car Show in La Mesa



Join us for a fun Mini-Shoot in downtown La Mesa for the Back to the 50'sCar Show. We will meet at the corner of La Mesa Blvd. & Palm Ave. at 4:00PM and walk up and down La Mesa Blvd. photographing the cars parked there and the ones cruising down the Boulevard. Afterwards those who are interested can have something to eat at La Torta Cafe located at 8356 Allison Ave. a block and a half to the north. They have a comfortable outdoor patio. If it is a larger group, we will need to make reservations for 5:30PM. Afterwards those that want to can continue shooting as there should be plenty of opportunities for street photography.

 

Here's the web site of the event: La Mesa Back to the 50's Car Show

Where to Park: I suggest street parking a block and a half north on Allison Ave.

What to bring: Fast wide lenses and medium zooms are best for shooting cars. You may get nice detail shots with long lenses. It might also be a good idea to bring your flashes.

Some special notes:

If you RSVP YES, please show up, otherwise change your RSVP to NO.

If you are late, no worries, it should be very easy to find the group on La Mesa Blvd. If you still can't find us, you can call Walter on his cell:[masked]-7893.

It should be another great day out. If you have any questions, suggestions, ideas, and even complaints, etc. you can email me by going to my member profile. See you there!

Note: This is the first of a series of car show shoots we will be scheduling this summer.

    The sun was brutal yesterday. This made it so hard to get a clean shot with so much glare. However, I had a great time at the event. I'm glad we have a great bunch of Photogs which made a difference !! I also enjoy the challenge of the sun too... :)

    Thanks Walter :)

    The web site gave June 6, for the car show, but when we got there some car owners said the June 27 was the correct date, and others thought it was June 6. Two police officers also differed on the date, one said June 6 and another July 11. About 30 cars were there, so we did get some good photos. We're going to forget the La Mesa Car Show until they get their act together and will shoot at El Cajon Car Show next week, Wednesday, June 12. I will post the shoot very soon.

    A few things you may consider bringing to the car show: Wide or Medium Zoom lens, i.e 14-24 or 24-70, Circular Polarizing Filter, Knee Pads, Camera Bubble Level...
