Summer Wouldn’t Be Summer Without A Good Car Show || Pewaukee Wi Photographers

One thing I look forward to most about summer are the classic car shows!  Photographing cars of all kinds is my guilty pleasure, kind of what I do for me.  I love how classic cars each tell their own story, and speak of times that I can only dream about.  As much as I have asked questions about all of these old cars- the engines, the headers, the intake, outtake, what makes them loud, fast, special, or unique- and have tried to retain all that information, let’s be honest- when it comes down to choosing my favorites at each car show, I choose based on COLOR!  It’s such a girl thing, or maybe an artist thing; but I’m not sorry.  Classic cars are the perfect canvas for showcasing awesome color.  It always fascinates me, too, to see how different vintages and auto makers put colors together, from the exterior paint to the contrasting colors of the interiors and overall extreme attention to detail.  The other side of the spectrum that I tend to swing to is, the older and rustier the better.  Rat Rods and old farm machinery get me every time!  But seeing all of the cool cars isn’t the only exciting thing about a car show- the people are so friendly and ready to divulge as much information about their cars as you will listen to, there’s refreshing beer and the smell of grilled food permeates the air, and the warm summer weather and country lifestyle makes you grateful to live in Wisconsin.  I hope you enjoy these shots from Sunday’s Boomers Car Show in Pewaukee, Wi.  I tend to become obsessed with the details… next time I will photograph more full-body shots for my fellow classic car enthusiasts!
