Once on site, conditions were challenging. The sun was beating down which resulted in harsh shadows. So, the solution was to even up the exposure and combat the directional light with some portable flash. My Lencarta Safari strobes are great in these situations, and really make the paint on these modified cars pop. A grad filter keeps the detail in the sky and the addition of a second flash unit make the background pop too.
A final word on this image – look at the bonnet, you’ll see that it has somehow become transparent and the bare engine can be seen. This is a popular shot for performance tuning magazines and is done by combining two image – one with the bonnet open, one closed. Photoshop takes care of the rest.
It was a tired drive home, thank god for Starbucks.
