This is the first car shot I ever did. I was fifteen. I had a two and a quarter copy of a Rolliflex. My Dad gave my uncle a lift to Beverly Hills so that my uncle could pick up his Ferrari after getting it serviced. A road race was about to be held in Smogville, one of the first road races in California. I wandered among all the race cars being tuned up for the big race. It was late, and the only person there was the manager. No press was allowed in, but he had a heart, and let the kid shoot some pictures. This car was lit by a sky light, and was a perfect shot for a beginer. The negative was thin, but fifty years later, I knew how to get a quality image out of it.
