Sarasota Classic Car Museum (part I of II)

Started in 1953, the Sarasota Classic Car Museum is the 2nd oldest car museum in the country. They feature over 80 vehicles from early 1900's through now. The museum is divided into to buildings. In the first building the cars were displayed using museum lighting which created a challenge for this photographer who left her flash at home. I tried to take advantage of the dark moody setting accented by spot lights and am happy to share the following with you.

Stay tune for Part II of this event which spotlights the cars with natural lighting.

First--right off the bat--you did excellent without flash!
The ambient light was good!
I try to avoid flash indoors (unless its people etc)
I don't think you would have gotten the level of depth that you got here had you used flash.
I love the old truck with the multi-colored paint!
Glad to see it left "as-is".
Did you get a close up of the moped??
What is that beast sharing the frame with the moped?
Wow...what a tank!!

Red Car + Neon sign..bravo!

Patty,
wow, thanks so much.
I agree, with you regarding using NO flash. It helped to add drama to each capture. I usually like museum lighting but it really was dark in there. I have to look at some of the EXIF files to see what the speeds were based upon the fact that I had my aperture totally opened and ISO around 800. And I have to say that I really didn't have to alter the exposure in POST. I did take all photos through TOPAZ to add some sharpening to each. I will go look at some more of the MOPED photos that I have and post them in the daily for JUST YOU. It is a GOEBEL. Mean anything to you?

Hi Lorell!
Never heard of Goebel mopeds; but looked them up.
German made. Image search was fun.
I’d take one as a gift!
I don’t know why Americans have never embraced mopeds and scooters as the great little rides that they are!
And I’m from a motorcycle family!

I almost never use flash inside when we go to antique shops etc.
I think the available light works well with the subjects.
There is nothing wrong with deep shadows in the background.
Your #7 and #8 motor tester Photos are a perfect example of that.
Flash may have illuminated clutter in the background.
These would be perfect for a thread titled
“Leave Your Flash At Home”!

Yes good to not use the flash.
Unless of course it was diffused and set to barely fill [underexpose the fill by several stops - keep the main exposure where it is]. Then again the sans flash might still be better.
