Halim's Subaru Forester
Hi all, Happy New Years! Been a while since I updated the journal. Been a while since I shot my favorite topic, cars. Today I'm going to showcase my friend, Halim's ride, a Subaru Forester .
I always thought it was difficult to capture black vehicles, what more to say one which has super shiny paintwork. I was right, it was still pretty difficult to light. And being very rusty my workflow was slower than usual. Running about by myself was extremely tiring, test shot, move and adjust lights, another test shot. You get the idea.
I think I need to get assistants.
Anyone willing to volunteer?
I actually shot in two locations, one is the usual car park, Taman Kereta, the second was MBKS long road. We started shooting at the first location around 430? Took me a while but only less than five shots which I think was decent enough. Lighting a dark car is not easy.
So after sweating my ass off, we moved to the second location. Which was outdoors. Not as hot.
Ok here comes the photos! which best describes this awesome ride.. from my point of view
It was a rushed ending, finally when I was in the groove it was time to pack up and leave. What a fun shoot. Thanks Halim.
I should be posting more of my car shoots here. Sharing our local rides into the interwebs.
Till the next time!
