While we haven’t really decided on a particular path to take as our focus; we have been seeing a huge percentage of our views and traffic to our automotive work. Particularly show/event coverage. We’ve recently hooked up with Ravi Angard of V2lab.com to get some insight on how to take auto portraits.
Basically his method was light painting.
We were familiar with light painting as a technique, but hadn’t really thought of it as a method suitable for cars. Which is strange now that I think about it since light painting is popular with product photography. Cars are products too, right?
Oh ya, interesting factoid. Evidently being parked on a side road near a closed bank at 1AM spells trouble. We were harrassed by two officers because we were blocking a public roadway. Which we weren’t. The greatest part is I didn’t have my ID on me. It took a lot of control to not give some over the top “stage name”…
