I just finished retouching another car from the Goodyear shoot. Red is a great color for a car. The I hope to hear from the art director soon about the main shots from the shoot. They are handling the retouching on those shots. For the main shots, I lit the exterior of the vehicle, and afterward, Dave shot the people inside. Very much the tag team approach, that we use on many projects. Please let me know what you think.
I love shooting cars. We recently did a shoot for Goodyear, and in addition to the main shots I did a few full car shots for their library. Automotive photography is always a challenge, but that’s what makes it fun. The shoot went well; it helps to have great clients and art directors. As always, I’m interested in your comments.
Commercial Photographers need to know a little about lots of things. It is one of the things I like about being a photographer. It helps when you are shooting to understand how the product works, or why it’s better. It helps because you can better illustrate the product, so you can tell the story. The story behind this product is that it helps protect soldiers. It absorbs energy that would otherwise be absorbed by the feet, ankles and legs of soldiers unlucky enough to be driving over an IED. As ever, let me know what you think.
