‘Mirrorless Monday’ with Colin Franks & the Panasonic G3

Often on Mirrorless Monday, the posts we receive are based around a specific theme, be it a far off country, a particular season, or, as in this case, a favourite hobby. Regular contributor Colin Franks has long been passionate about photographing classic cars, which is why this week, he has decided to share an entire series with us taken with his Panasonic G3.

About his passion for car photography, Colin states:

Whether at a car show, an abandoned old hulk found in the bush, or the Streets of Cuba, cars are a fun and interesting topic for me to shoot.  Getting a decent shot at a car show usually requires a close-up due to the crowds, reflections and other vehicles parked close by, but they’re all there en mass for you to click away. Full sun also presents a challenge for this subject matter, cloudy days are best for that diffused light.

Something you cannot help but notice about Colin’s car photography is his keen attention to detail. He will focus on an aspect of the car he finds intriguing, compose it against an interesting background, and turn it into a piece of art with one click of the shutter button. Thank you for sharing this wonderful collection, Colin–we hope to see more just like it!
