Porsche 928 Photoshoot
This last weekend I went out to photograph my colleague´s Porsche 928, a 1987-model which he has imported from Sweden. The challenge was to get some photos that could go into the Norwegian Porsche Classic magazine.
I brought the Canon 5D MkII with the 24-105mm lens for wide angles and 70-200mm lense for details. The challenge was to find a good location with a cool background which brought out the best from the Porsche.
Location #1 was in an underpass which with tagged up walls – the perfect scenario for an urban feel. The combination of urban feel and black & white high contrast look gave good results. Here are some of the results:
A Black & White photo of the Porsche´s back-end. By zooming in with the 24-105mm lens I made the car look even more bulky than it was, and a bit more square. Focal Length: 105mm, Aperture: F4, Shutter: 1/125s, ISO: 400
The Porsche 928 from the side, with the tagged wall as a background. The vignetting gives the photo an extra cool look and helps put the car in the context of its surroundings. Focal Length: 24mm, Aperture: F4, Shutter: 125s, ISO: 800
After finishing in the underpass we went to the IKEA parking lot, which was deserted because it´s Sunday (yes, IKEA is closed on Sundays in Norway!). A combination of B&W and coloured photos, but again I prefere B&W!
The Porsche from the front, with its special round headlamps. We used a trolley shed as background which worked well. Focal Length: 105mm, Aperture: F8, Shutter: 1/125s, ISO: 100
HDR Interior photo from the 928. The interior was in great condition with special edition seats. Nice! I used a narrow aperture to get the required depth. Focal Length: 24mm, Aperture: Various, Shutter: Various, ISO: 400
Another HDR, using 3 photos. I did this to capture the details of the clouds whilst not under exposing the car. Combine it with black & white and you get a very cool photo. Focal Length: 24mm, Aperture: Various, Shutter: Various, ISO: 160
These are just a few of the shots I took. Go to my Smugmug site to check out the rest. Enjoy!
