Met up with a forum/facebook group fellow member to talk retrofits and take a few shots. Super overcast, raining, light was all but gone by the time I pulled up… Oh well. Busted out the rarely used tripod and shot exclusively with the 70-200 and gave it a shot. Location was a little busier than I would have liked, should have scouted that one out a little more.. Also, we were constantly chatting about photography as well as retrofits and I don’t know about anyone else, but I can’t do 2 things at once. Kept firing the camera and dropping the conversation, ignored the camera and kept chatting.. Once Krobsy finishes his retrofit we’ll go back out and re-shoot, maybe a little more prepared this time….. Maybe
Camaro SS Indy 500 edition, nice and neat.. Tried a more “nature-esque” background for this shoot as this car really feels at home on back roads and quiet areas where you can disturb the peace with that beautiful V8 rumble ..
A very, very quick shoot with a good friend Albert and his Audi. Wanted some evening shoots – tripod and a 70-200 and that’s about it. Had flash dreams but dead batteries – c’est la vie. He wanted dark, super dark, I tried.
12 shots all together, conveniently no interior and very little engine bay shots.. Parking in the middle of the road makes it a little awkward to set flashes up to do it right so natural light and whatever angles I could get without falling into some really questionable water ended up producing a “this is what I got” set.
Plans are in the works for some night shots, light trails and flashes.. Rolling shots, safety concerns thrown out the window to hang out in the bed of a truck or something.. And perhaps a dusk shoot prior to the night shoot to get some SB800 and SB600 action going on..
Hopefully a Camaro makes a cameo on my blog soon, as well as a re-shoot of a certain Supra.. A Talon should grace the blog shortly as well.. We’ll see.
Met up with a gentleman named Mike today with a boosted, 400+ whp S2000 that was in desperate need of a photoshoot.. Here’s a sneak peak of the shoot – too late to edit everything, so enjoy the preview.
