Shooting the Ripraw Girls at USC

Another weekend, another car show and this time it was USC (Ultimate Street Car) at Santa Pod. I wasn't lucky enough to have any secluded barns to shoot in this time so it was a case of making the best of a bad lot. And at car shows, it's a very bad lot - even when...
