Going to events is always exciting for me, seeing friends and meeting new people. Honestly this particular event was my first one to attend to, Wekfest 2017. I heard about this show long before but never had the chance to attend. Luckily this time I was fortunate enough to be able to go and it was local, Long Beach California. It was the perfect venue, with the great Queen Mary ship and a ocean-side backdrop, it was the place to be for taking cool pictures. I know famous and respected photographers will be present.

From what I know, Wekfest was established in 2008 in San Francisco, it grew respectably around the world including japan and it will grow more and more amazingly. I will be attending this show annually from now on.

The caliber of builds as I walked pass them was unmistakably surprising. We have come so far from just simple builds and now that the automotive industry is evolving very quickly it’s up to his/her own imagination and creativity. I have to up my game aswell and so, I decided to shoot the event on a long exposure shots, rarely I see photographers do it especially on a car show. One thing I forgot to share was it was my first time doing it. With my skills and knowledge(Still a novice), I started attacking. Oh, also I had forgotten my tripod to be able to take long exp. shots and I humbly asked my fellow brothers if they can lend me a spare, in luck I was able to barrow one. I slapped on my canon 24-70mm f4 and I took 3 test shots to calibrate my settings, from there I started to look for builds that I like. (more photos on my flickr).

Anyways, just enjoy my photos. 🙂

This Honda NSX is owned by non-other than John Fob himself. I did a separate insight on his build, be sure to check my previous posts.

I’m starting to get a hang on doing long exposure shots and will do it in more events. I really don’t like using flashes unless its necessary.

With so many cars, I can only shoot as much as I can. All I can say is that I have all the respect to the owners and respected companies/brands. I know they put in a lot of work into their passion, expressing their individuality through their cars, creating a soul in the process and character. Some loves the build and some doesn’t, it’s all part of the game of respect the build.
