Last fall while attending the Belmont Shores Car Show in Long Beach, I came across this unique custom-built classic roadster. I kick myself for not taking more shots of it, but maybe it will make an appearance at this years show. Isolating vehicles while hooting public cars shows can be difficult with the crowds of people who usually attend. A fast lens shot with shallow depth of field can help. In my case I didn’t have a wide-angle with me and had a tendency to concentrate more on detailed views of the cars using the fast 50.
