Here’s some behind the scenes images of some recent car shoot
There’s many ways to photograph cars, either in the studio or on location, some are more time consuming than others and can often require very different techniques, so here’s a couple of setups that I often use to achieve some of my automotive images.
Here’s the behind the scenes setup and then the Final image on a shoot using a pole rig to achieve the look of the car moving …
And if an indoor space with plenty of room to maneuver around the car is available, then I can use backdrops to separate the car from the environment – more like a studio shoot. An example of a Lamborghini shot in this way is below.
Location shoots can work well too – they are often much less costly to do than the two more intensive methods shown above, but you do need to find a good location to start with first.
Obviously sometimes it’s not possible to do shoots this way and this is when editing / retouching can come into it’s own. See the before and after shots of this BMW I8 that was at a car show here below after several hours of editing / retouching work.
