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.
Very clean and sexy 180sx type X.
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.
I represent Team Emperor Motorsports as I am a member.
Mr. Tan’s legendary Hakosuka build. This is my next insight so stay tuned.
This also on my lists on insights to cover in the near future.
Very nicely done on this civic hatch.
More camber please.
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.
Another successful event, until next time.
