Essay: historic car headlights

I have shot in the Hellenic Motor Museum before (for example, check out this link) and it always has been a real pleasure being the vintage car enthusiast that I am. Moreover, since the management takes care in rotating the cars several times per year, there’s always a fresh piece of automotive history to see and photograph.

This time I decided to make a funny little essay. I focused on what I believe is one of the most recognizable details in a vintage car: the headlights. So I set the X-Pro2 to a square format and used JPEGs only (very slightly corrected in post).

Hope you find it interesting and entertaining, and, if you respect old cars and their history, please don’t forget to support any relevant local initiatives.

Gear report: I used the X-Pro2 for all photos, and the Fujinon XF 35mm f/1.4 and 10-24mm f/4. A few months ago I decided to swap my trusty 14mm f/2.8 for this lens, since I believed it would allow me to be much more versatile for the work I do. I’m pleased to say this was 100% correct; I have since used it in a variety of situations, and never been bothered by its f/4 speed or larger size. More examples will follow in weeks to come.
