    Went to check out the LA Auto Show last night. Considering it was a Monday, it was quite empty and I was able to stroll the convention center at a leisurely pace, kicking tires, and snapping a few photos. There was a record number of concept cars at this year's show.

    Shot these with my manual focus Leica Summaron 35mm f/2.8 (which I am eBaying off by the end of the week) and with the Sony A7's articulating LCD screen. So much easier than crouching down to get a lower angle, and shooting with the screen tilted at 90 degrees reminds me of shooting medium format cameras. I'm partly regretting my decision of selling off this Leica lens because I always forget how darn good it is until I shoot it. But honestly, since I shoot mostly portraits, my rhythm is better with AF lenses. Looking to try out the Zeiss 35mm f/2.8 next.

    I enjoyed the show very much, hope you guys enjoy the pics :)

    For some reason I can see these in tapatalk but on Safari it doesn't show - seems it doesn't like the ?w=900 on the end.

    Nice shots though!

    Cool shots! That Leica performed really well (I just had an early LSM Summaron 35 3.5 serviced --nice little jewel). That BMW looks serious. Thanks for posting!

    Great shots!
    If I had a Land Rover, you can bet I wouldn't be sleeping in a tent on top of it. Not with all the luxury I could be sleeping on inside of the LR. Heated seats, music, etc ;) Although maybe they are not quite as luxurious when they are actually bought for their purpose. I've only been in "suburbian LRs"

    Good stuff! The very very first image in the first set looks like it could be the shot for the advertisement. Sweet contrast and lighting. I think I would have poked around that half car for a long time. I love to see that kind of stuff. Seeing how they cram all that technology into the car and still have room for seats lol!

    The LA auto show had some fantastic lighting! The shot was basically unedited, straight from the camera.
