Gonzo (Chris Gonzalez) is no stranger to DODOlogic and DODOlogic is no stranger to Gonzo. You’ve probably gathered that if you’ve followed us for any length of time. Gonzo has successfully created a bromance with our entire publication and we’re so happy to see him live his dream. Last weekend we drove a few hours to help support his drifting habit.
So here it is, the final portion of my two-part article. I will be going through some meets and photo shoots.
I don’t know what it is about car photography but when I purchased my D-SLR, I was instantly captivated with all the detail involved. Things like the time of day, composition and exposure all affect a car picture. Learning the ins and outs while honing your skills takes a while. I am still learning all the wonders of Photoshop and to be quite honest my favourite part of the whole process is getting home after a shoot and editing the pics. Not a single picture I take doesn’t go through post-processing of some sort but without a doubt my automotive shoots go through the most rigorous editing. Multiple exposures and layer masks are used 100% of the time with static shots, thankfully shooting drift and drag events don’t require all the editing to make such an impact.
Now on to the pictures!
So as the year is coming to an end I find myself thinking of what I did throughout the year. Making trips to both Saskatoon and Calgary for drift events were definitely the highlights of my summer, but a lot of little meets and photo shoots can’t be forgotten. This past summer was by far the busiest I have ever been in the automotive world. Now that I have gotten the taste of what there actually is for a car community in the Regina area, I am going to make sure I attend as many events and provide as much coverage for the readers as my wallet can handle.
I might as well start off part 1 of the 2 part article with photos from this past summer.

Surfing on the internet is one of my favorite things to do, it’s usually the first and last thing I do everyday. Cruising around on a few of my favorite sites such as dieselstation.com, mycanikon.com and of course flickr.com I found a few pictures I would like to share with everyone.
A lot of you have probably seen this one before, a super clean LS1 powered 240sx built to drift:
