Summary:

What  a combination. Ben Jaworskyj, a very hot car and the capital city of Berlin. The night comes alive when Ben shows us how the location can make all the difference in the world. Keeping to his usual motto of more photography with as little effort or technique as possible, Nighttime in the big city with all the color and glamor is a great time to make exciting photos.

Ben delivers the goods and we get a great photo with not one, but two subjects one setting off the other in perfect harmony. We don't want to let our black cat out of the bag so do tune in, and see how easy these great results can be.

Shooting Cars

Summary:

René Staud is back with another car shooting.

We join him in his studio in Leonberg where we are presented a feast for the eyes; the beautiful Aston Martin DB5. The legendary Bond car from Goldifnger and Thunderball is on hand for a shooting from the master car photographer.

A classic car like this demands classic lighting and René pulls out all the stops using static stationary lighting to achieve a soft lighting to accent the classic rounded Italian curves of the Touring bodied convertible.

Light by light we see the approach and the steady commission of photos that will play in the final result. The large ceiling reflector and the two background spots are demonstrated for their important contribution to this same end.  

After a quick walk through the post processing, more shaken then stirred, we a rewarded with classic subtilely lit Aston Martin DB5 .

Summary:

Renowned car photographer René Staud is working on a new book. The book will be a look back and celebration of the now more than famous Porsche 911. Fifty years ago the first 911 came to the world stage at the Frankfurt Auto Show in 1963. Now in honor of fifty years  Porsche 911, a new book covering each and every model is in the final stages.

We had the chance to look over his shoulder as he prepped and shot the very cool Turbo 911 S .

Initially the auto is brought to him in Stuttgart where he does the final detailing, in this case just a bit of dust removal. With a massive soft box towering over the car, the lighting setup incorporating flash is decided upon and tested. René give us a description of the amount of power the lighting setup has and it's not for day-trippers. This is some serious watts. He shrugs this off much like the powerful cars he photographs, with "you might not need all that power, but nice to know you have it "

Nothing is left to chance as he systematically addresses every aspect of the shot, with special attention to the "line" of the car. This is the line from the tail to the front fender contours.

Once the car is set, the test shots, including additional over and under exposures for the fore and backgrounds are made before sending the it on to the the post processing.

The final touches are made with a little color accent to make the metal shine and the 911 Turbo S chapter is in the box.
