Skoda Kodiaq was SO CLOSE to look really great, but…

Since the AutoIQ story is long over, I have no more chance to photograph interesting cars and publish them. Most of the cars I've published in 2017 are from the archive, but a friend of mine got me a half an hour with the new Skoda Kodiaq. I couldn't resist that, so I took my camera and only one lens (Sigma 24mm f/1.4 ART) and I went to capture a couple of photos. Unfortunately, I didn't have much time, and the car was a bit dirty, so I had to work with what I got. (more…)...

Well, the Abarth 595 Competizione is a nice way to end a beautiful story

Well, the Abarth 595 Competizione is a nice way to end a beautiful story

This is going to be a special post. Today is, on the day I'm writing this, the December 29th, 2016, I'll have to wait for some time before I can publish this because there are information I still can't share with anybody. The story is the following: This car, Abarth 595 Competizione, is the last one I've photographed for the AutoIQ Magazine because after almost five years, this magazine is shutting down. I'll share a very special post about it in the following weeks, because this one is all about the Abarth. (more…)...

Maybe the title is a bit harsh, but keep in mind that I LOVE this car and I enjoyed having it. Especially when you see how the next generation will look like. After seeing those photos, I think I'll miss this generation. (more…)...

My prime lenses story: It started with a failure at the worst possible moment

My prime lenses story: It started with a failure at the worst possible moment

I've always been a practical photographer: I had to have two lenses with me that cover the biggest focal range. Those two lenses were the 17-40mm f/4 and the 70-200mm f/2.8 (both Canon's). There is a big gap between the 40 and the 70mm, but I would fill it with the 50mm f/1.4 from Sigma. I always had to have the widest and the longest focal length with me, just in case! (more…)...

Mitsubishi Space Star had a special treatment with my beloved prime lenses

Mitsubishi Space Star had a special treatment with my beloved prime lenses

There are situations I like having an automatic gearbox in a test car, but I've never liked having it in a small city car, like this Mitsubishi Space Star with its CVT gearbox. I don't know, it's ok for a city drive and I don't have to bother with changing gears, but this particular gearbox wasn't so exciting... (more…)...
