Last Saturday our church had their bi-annual Men's Breakfast at the airport; planes, cars, bikes, and breakfast! I was asked to take photos of the event, so I talked with a friend of mine about coming a little early in order to take some nice sunrise shots. He brought his BMW all shined up and we got it placed and started shooting.
I'm super happy with the results! I shot these "posed" photos for less than thirty minutes but came away with all the photos needed to make some stellar images. In order to make sure I captured all the detail—from the pale colors of the pre-dawn sky to the color of the car's dark shadows—I shot series of images to combine in an HDR method. Also, I made sure to get a headlight shot to composite on top.
Here is stage one of my customizing project. Well, technically this is stage two. One is drilling out the rivets. So these have been separated out into their parts; metal body, plastic windows, plastic interior, plastic or metal base with wheels, and that one spoiler. I've obviously stripped the paint off of them in preparation for their new finishes, then loosely reassembled them for some photos. I hope they come out well!
Here I have a Koenigsegg Agera R, a Lamborghini Veneno, and two fabulous Porsches. A 993 GT2 and a 934 Turbo RSR. These two are amazing.
The Dream Cars exhibit has been on display in Atlanta's High Museum during the summer. As my dad and I found out, it's a fantastic gathering of unique vehicles that I was almost completely unfamiliar with.
They had a great deal on during certain hours on most days through the summer. Admission and lunch for a few dollars less than the regular entrance price! So that worked well for us.
