Mike's Camera had a workshop at the Rambler Ranch in Elizabeth last year and we missed it. Why? Because we were in Greece! Bummer, it looked like a great place to get our photo geek on. Mike's scheduled one for this year and we bought tickets. We just got back from Costa Rica two days before the workshop. What a fun shoot!
The ranch is owned by a guy who collects Rambler cars and a whole bunch of other stuff, like old stoves and refrigerators. There were warehouses filled with cars from all eras. The best shoot was in the boneyard. We were divided in small groups and spent time in each area. Good luck getting the photographers out of the boneyard and on to the next spot - Haaa. In one of the buildings, Mike's set up studio lights and had two models dressed in period clothes - my first real model shoot.
I did some creative stuff with the boneyard and wanted to get that vintage feel for the periods...I got a little carried away and tried out some infrared filters. Speaking of infrared, I am seriously thinking about converting the censor in my Fuji XT20 to infrared just to do some cool stuff. I always wanted to do infrared with film back in the day. Hum...
Camera: Fuji XT3
There were a couple of rooms loaded with refrigerators and stoves. There was even a replica of a 1970's house. Yes, I remember living in such a house!
