Last Glance: Jason Lehman's Award-Winning Car Photo

This photo won first place in the Events and Activities catergory of our annual photo contest. We'll begin accepting entries for the 2013 contest in August.

Jason Lehman never misses Cars and Cafe at AutoMotorPlex in Chanhassen. This monthly summer event offers Lehman the perfect opportunity to pursue his two passions: cars and photography. Lehman, who’s worked in the automotive industry the past 13 years, says that photography is just a hobby. Cars are important subjects in Lehman’s pictures, and he brings his camera every time he visits the car show.According to Lehman, this moment happened to be “one of the lucky ones.” It had rained the night before this particular show, and Lehman spotted the reflection of the beautiful Alfa Romeo Giulietta Spider in a puddle. Wasting no time, Lehman whipped out his Canon 7D and began snapping pictures.“It was early in the morning, and the light was perfect,” Lehman says. Even though he got wet, Lehman felt victorious. A perfect assessment of photography—the minor inconveniences and distractions are well worth it for the chance to capture one of those lucky shots.
