The Old Chevy

Classic Old Chevy in Vermont

Photography Prints

Driving around the Upper Valley region of Vermont this week through a thick foggy morning mist, looking for an opportunity to capture the beautiful fall foliage, I spotted this great old Chevy outside of an auto repair shop.

I’m a sucker for a classic car, especially one with a big grinning chrome fender and rounded hood.  The foggy morning made for dull, lifeless fall foliage landscape shots but for a subject like this old Chevy antique classic car the lighting was perfect.  Flat, even lighting as if the car was in the studio under a large softbox.

I decided to enhance the dark background with a bit of Adobe Photoshop magic, painting in the black with a soft brush and brought out details of the car with some high dynamic range and dynamic clarity effects ensuring a wide range of tones from pure white to pure black, with a beautiful gray tone on the body paint of this old classic Chevy.

My online portfolio of fine art photography contains several examples of classic old cars found in the wild in the Vermont and New Hampshire area including show worthy restored beauties and rusty old junkers in farm fields.  Each has its own sense of beauty.

Another great find in Vermont. This old green Chevy pickup truck was spotted outside of Burlington, Vermont. This one was in great restored shape unlike my next find.

This rusty of farm truck was spotted just south of Burlington, Vermont.
