Part of Easter break took me into central Alberta to Wetaskiwin for an afternoon at the Reynolds-Alberta Museum. With permission I photographed vehicles that had played a part in Alberta’s history – McLaughlin Buicks, Grahams, a Duisenberg, a Cord, some Chevrolets and Fords. With my Sigma 10-20 mm lens and at ISO 6400, the museum’s lighting was somewhat harsh and it’s possible that different metering and bringing down the ISO with longer exposures might have yielded more satisfying results. A speedlight might allow more control of lighting although reflection from vehicle gloss and finish would need to be anticipated. My intention, for my next visit is to bring my macro lens (for pattern and design work) and my 70-200 lens (to get closer-in to vehicles from a distance) – exploring other possibilities. So, these images become scouting shots, first looks at subject and context and first looks towards what might be done next time. The upcoming May long-weekend begins a tribute to cars from the fifties at the Reynolds Museum, something to return for.
