It was definitely a fun time. A lot of amazing cars and bikes, but way too much sun. Some shots were over exposed, next shot way underexposed. Walking around with so many shiny car wrecks havoc on the light metering apparently. Was out there with my bro and a few friends. Gotta do it again, with more sunblock and a BBQ pit, lol. Here are just some of the pics I took, and a link at the end to the rest. Only put up about 220 or so from the 1000 I shot. Just another reason TX > all. lol j/k

Hey digital, looks like a great time! Just wanted to share a little trick that I like to do with light metering and it should work for about 99% of the time. Do a little experiment, meter on a subject like you normally do, then meter off the blue sky 90 degress from the sun, then take your shot of the same object and compare your two shots. You should pretty much have a perfect exposure of what you're looking for out of that picture, metering off of the sky. If you're taking pictures of an engine bay, then don't do what I just suggested, but cars, people, or whatever outside using the natural light should work well

Example:

Sun is at High noon - Meter just above the horizon on the blue sky....
Sun is setting or rising - Meter at High noon and take the shot!

Hope that helps! Its a trick that keeps on giving!
