Porsche Turbo by night
In it he has competed in numerous events such as the Mt Buller Sprint and Targa Tasmania, with good results including a 5th place this year.
Matt recently got in touch with me asking if I would be happy to take some photos of the car before it sold as the car has had a total respray and is in better condition now then when it was new.
So on a nice warm night last week we arranged to do the shoot. It had to be late in the day due to time constraints, so we met around 6pm and headed straight to one of my spots in Docklands that I use.
It was interesting to note that the Porsche has a decent storage space under the bonnet, it fitted my rolling camera bag in there perfectly.
Once on location I had to work fast as we were losing light fast, I quickly set up a couple of shots using the available light.
In the shots above you can see some of the city lights starting to give that awesome orange glow
Once the light was gone and the city lights starting coming on, I then switched to work with my flash units to light the car and balancing for the city lights in the background. For the first few images I had my Nikon SB800’s mounted on light stands which I was then triggering using Nikon’s CLS system from another SB800 mounted on top of the camera.
I was pretty happy with the results, for the small amount of time I had.
When I shot the first lot of images when we still had some daylight, I shot a range of exposures to then turn them into some HDR’s, the end result was some surreal looking images, but it is still nice for a different effect
