With nerves travelling a mile a minute through my veins, I tried setting up my tripod.
Before me stood one-of-a-kind vehicles, inside and out, bumper-to-bumper. And it was my job to capture them in their best light.
I had no idea what I was doing.
Still, I tried to play it cool.
This was the SEMA Auto Show after all – you’ve heard of that one, right?
Every year, over 2.5 million square feet of the Las Vegas Convention Center gets filled with 1,500 project vehicles you can’t see at any other car show in the world!
In theory, yes…
But in reality, the responsibility of photographing the event for one of the largest Corvette communities in the U.S. left me shaking in terror, trying to control my breath while I adjusted the lens on my Nikon D90.
Confession: I really wasn’t a “professional” photographer.
Still, I swallowed my fears. And started shooting.
Or at least, I tried…
Because what happened NEXT…
Was the thing I expected the least.
And it completely kicked my ass and turned my world upside down.
I’ll open that can of worms tomorrow…
