Brooklands Museum has its own weather climate, so I usually take the forecast with a pinch of salt, this time though the prediction of heavy rain was right, this didn't dampen the six photographers spirits though as we were able to use the raindrops to our advantage creating some atmospheric abstract photographs.

Just after lunch the weather dried up and gave us freedom to use the historic banking at Brooklands Museum, as the first ever motor sport circuit in the UK it makes a fantastic setting to place the cars on, the McLaren 650s resplendent in its Volcano Orange paintwork really stood out against the circuit and other backdrops around the airfield and classic wooden garages.

All of the six photographers who attended have a passion for cars ann photography, so combining the two with Brooklands Museum as a backdrop is a great mix for creating a stunning range of images. It is always interesting to see the variety of photos that are taken of the same cars by different people, the one that had the most attention was the McLaren 650S, not just for its looks but also because of the stunning colour scheme. Another favourite was the brand new Morgan Aero 8 which Jamie from Brands Hatch Morgan had brought along for the photography course, I drove the car a couple of months ago and it is a real head turner and combines a classic look with modern performance, an alternative to the modern super car.

The next car photography course is on Sunday 21st August at Brooklands Museum, spaces are still available and the cost is £150, lunch is included on the day and another mix of cars will be on display for people to photograph.
