it over already! what a ride, eh?!
but we are going out with a bang as they say. not only do I have some very sweet studio photos of the amazing 458 Italia, but also the Video we taped on one of the days that weekend.
Lets start with the photos though.
After the studio shoot with the Nissan GTR, which was my first car studio shooting, I learned a lot and one of the must important things was that for the classic studio shot you need a large, clean, white surface without any texture so I thought I had planned ahead well with getting a 3,60m x 3,60m sail and frame beforehand for that. Well it unfortunately it wasn’t enough. Not enough for what you might probably as… what you want for those classic photos is a clean white reflection on the car, that emphasis the cars lines and form. So when the sail or soft box or whatever you use is to small you get a lot of unwanted reflections. I was for example fighting a lot with the aluminum frame of the sail this time.
We got it under control, but it certainly wasn’t the perfect solution yet. I found an amazing huge soft box made by Chimera just for this purpose, but it is about 10.000 dollars. So I need improvise for the next shoot, but if you know anyone at Chimera that could organize a testshoot or loaner with this beast I would be very very thankful.
Enjoy these and let me know what you think!
and now here we go with the the very cool video the guys produced, I think we also learned a lot while filming this, but a very cool video for our first time!
for the HD Version head over to their Vimeo channel though!
and as this adventure is over I want to thank everyone involved a lot for all the help and especially to my friends at Maranello Motors for being so generous and kind!
