2011 Autocon Promo Shoot Breakdown
A year ago around this time, I had come with an idea to shoot a group of cars. By group, I meant, 10 cars plus just to experience how it would be. At the time, I had already shot groups of 3 and groups of 7 even. So I thought I’d experiment a little. The shoot was done on the fly at an unscouted location which caused us to improvise. Little did I know that positioning 15 cars would be so difficult. We had to figure out the best way to organize the cars and minimize hiding them. In the end due to the sun rapidly setting, we had to settle on an “organized scatter” of cars to shoot.
Then I filled in a sky just so that the top of the photo did not look empty. Thus making it a more dynamic photo that is supposed to be viewed as a whole. Notice that with the sky addition that it did not take away from the focus on the cars, but complimented it.
Although the photo is a year old, I hope it helps to shed some light on my editing style.
