Lots Of Time Under Starlight

The Story:
I’m always on the lookout for locations to use in my automotive work so when the owner of this Evora got in touch for a shoot, I knew exactly where to head. It’s a driver’s car so the full set is based around rural roads which provide not only a suitable backdrop but also, being some way from streetlamps, provide the opportunity to control all aspects of lighting on location.

The Tip:
Lightpainting a car should be all about neat highlights to help define the car’s shape but these reflections can look out of place in a static scene. By incorporating dynamic elements such as the drifting cloud and passing traffic, the highlights are more tightly integrated in the scene.
