Holden HSV R8 Tourer Photo Shoot
A few months ago I shot the HSV Clubsport R8 sedan which was a great fun car, so when the opportunity to drive and photograph a Tourer version of the Clubsport, I jumped at it. The Tourer is the wagon version of the sedan.
I only had the car overnight and in the mid of winter the weather isn’t always the best, and on this night in particular it started ok but no sooner did I get to the first photo location that the heavens opened and it poured with rain.
So at this first location I only shot a couple of angles as it was really starting to pour.
To continue with the shoot I need to get me and the car out of the rain, so we headed to one of the multistory car parks I use in Docklands to finish the shoot under cover.
Because of it being night and the car park isn’t overly well lit, I used my trusty Nikon SB800’s to light the car.
They helped a whole lot and the images came out quite well
Using the flash’s can give you some great intense lighting results as you can see above
Using some HDR work I got a nice interior shot also.
I would love to have had longer with the car but time just didn’t allow
