I haven't really posted a lot here but that's all going to change, well maybe. I shoot a lot more than I am able to share so in the hopes of shedding some light on "why and how" I'll write once a week about projects that I can talk about. Sounds ducky right?
I've been lucky enough to shoot the cars that are being featured on Jay Leno's car care line cleverly call "Jay Leno's Garage Advanced Vehicle Care". I've shot lots of these cars for the youtube show of similar name but when I shoot for the labels I'm able to flex more time and skill into the work. One of the cars is the 1963 Corvette split-window, I have photographed it before but now it's going to be featured on one of the bottles. I shot 2 different angles, an upper rear shot and 3/4 rear but what's nice about having time on my side is trying to shoot more for myself. I strongly recommend that if you're shooting for a client, (espcailly one with expectations) make time to shoot for yourself. Those are the images I'm always happier with and even if they don't get used and I know that I made the time to "try something different". Also with social media, you will always need more content to opost...so do it.
I've always wanted to grab a sexy profile shot of this car so with an Icelight II (or a photographer's lightsaber) I did several passes to emphasize the haunches and subtilty of the design at the front. I mean this car is badass at any angle but I wanted it to be about form and not so much function
Here is the is shot with shoot information
Canon 5D Mark III, 5 sec at f/8, ISO 100, lite with an Icelight II
