We’re going on a trip, in my favorite rocketship, zooming through the sky – Little Einsteins!!
I can’t help but sing this song in my head as a yellow vehicle passes by. This picture was taken one busy SJSU morning and the vehicle happened to pass by. One of my photo assignments required me to take a picture of a moving object using a technique known as panning. Panning is when the camera is following a subject as it moves and capturing it at a shutter fast enough to make it seem like the background is moving rather than the subject. This was the result of that technique on the rocketship passing by.
Japantown, San Jose CA | October 2, 2016 – A few loud engines and lowered cars will never fail to bring out a crowd. The community that is Japantown of San Jose hosted the fourth annual Shukai car show featuring cars that seemed to be right out of the Fast and Furious movie series. This picture was taken around 2:30 in the afternoon when the lighting was in the beginning phase of becoming the “golden hour.” I took this picture from behind because there are many car enthusiasts who recognize a car from its rear. The upped contrast really brings out the rear of the Nissan GTR (car on the right) while the cars color really helps to bring attention to the Lancer EVO (car on the left) which is a bright white. The warm highlighted tones really give it a homey vibe, like this is the place to come to with the family and admire someone else’s hard work. That is exactly what this event was. The EVO and GTR are a couple of the most popular cars in the import world because of their all-wheel drive capabilities which allow their speed and acceleration to be at the top of the car chain. The wings on these cars add extra pizzazz and make them look much cooler and faster.
