Auburn Hills, Michigan – The Walter P. Chrysler Museum in Auburn Hills, Michigan will present two enthusiasts’ presentations this fall, highlighting vehicle history and “tricks of the trade” for taking auto photos like a pro.
Under the Hood will run from 9:30 a.m. to noon on Saturday, September 18, while Professional Motorsports Photography will be held from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. on Wednesday, October 6. Both are part of a lecture-workshop series the Museum launched earlier this year. Admission for each presentation is US$12.00 in advance or $15.00 at the door, refreshments included, with discounts for Museum members.
Both programs are presented by Shuman Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram in Walled Lake, Michigan.
Under the Hood is slated for 9:30 a.m. – noon Saturday, Sept. 18 and Professional Motorsports Photography is set for 6 – 8 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 6. Both programs are part of the lecture-workshop series the Museum launched earlier this year.
Under the Hood will reveal the inside stories of many of Chrysler’s iconic vehicles, including a brief historical overview and introductory remarks by Chrysler retirees, engineers or executives. Most of the session will allow attendees to informally tour the museums and talk one-on-one with eight Chrysler retirees positioned throughout the museum, who will speak on such subjects as early Dodge Chargers and Challengers, 1930s vehicles, trucks, the 1963 Chrysler Turbine, race vehicles, and the 1957 Plymouth Fury and 1968 Road Runner.
Professional photographer Michael Levitt, owner of motorsports photo agency LAT USA, will lead Professional Motorsports Photography. The lecture will cover equipment choices, exposure, shooting techniques, focusing, post production and transmission.
