Visit and Photo Tips

  • Download the Simeone Foundation Automotive Museum app for a map of the museum and a guided audio tour
    • Bring earphones
  • Bring snacks – there is no food sold in the museum
  • Cars are displayed behind ropes but are close to viewers
  • Bring a wide to tele lens (or both wide and tele) to get both wide angle and cropped shots
  • You will be shooting under low light, so you can:
    • Bring a tripod or monopod
    • Use high ISO
    • Use flash
  • White balance under mixed indoor lights is a challenge, so:
    • Shoot RAW and correct WB in post-processing
  • You may wish to shoot video during demonstrations
