HDR Frozen Car

20130129HDRCarI saw this old car the other day and new I had to come back and grab an image. I wanted to try some HDR stuff with the D800. This was a composite of 5 RAW files in Nik Software’s HDR eFex Pro 2. It’s a bit of a grunt with 5 giant files, but it came together well. I was hoping for a more dramatic sunset, but I’ll take the sunburst instead. ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m not a car guy, but I think this is a 1948 Chevy Fleetmaster.

Those were the days!

Here is a 100% crop of the badge on the side:ย fleetmaster

 


Dusty Dam

Had to make a water run tonight to the supple bounty of Alameda. It was approaching golden light which is always exciting. It was also dusty as all get out. Dust, fog, mist – they are all the theme park of light. We lucked out and ran into much dust on the roads to let the sunset have the mucho fun. ๐Ÿ˜Ž

HDR! Boo ya! ๐Ÿ˜Ž


Oh, what a feeling!

We ran out this afternoon for a quick photo shoot of the Fonstad’s new 4Runner. I love this truck! Ever since Toyota redesigned it, I’ve loved the new look. Manliest truck out there, bar none! So, when Jimmy wanted some shots for the truck forum, I jumped at the chance. Great way to practice your HDR stuff because vehicles look awesome, and they don’t move. Find the composition, tripod and boom! High Dynamic Range Toyota. 8) Automobile photography isn’t really all that hard, but it is tough trying to come up with interesting shots that haven’t been done before. Human subjects create a mood all there own, but with vehicles, you have to bring it out with camera angles and environment. Fortunately the 4Runner looks kick @$$ and mean! It’s easy to make this truck look pure awesome. ๐Ÿ˜†
