The past few months have been really tough to shoot. Temperature is rising every week and slowly reaching its peak recently. Temperatures of 47 – 50C is no joke especially when paired with crazy humidity. Weather is bearable at night though, so I geared up and decided to shoot my own car, 2016 Audi S3 with an Audi Exclusive Color called, aventurine orange mica.
The paint being a mica contains some pearlescent properties meaning it changes the shade depending on the light. I decided to try a light painting shoot for the car. I did a couple of tries and I made a few mistakes so I guess, its a good shoot. Learning something is always good. I learned that lighting angles and height matters a lot. Light painting is not my go to lighting but, maybe I’ll try to for my next car photography assignment.
The gear I used:
Nikkor 14-24mm f2.8
MTL 900 II LED light (yeah, this is the Ice light knock off) with barn doors
Took a few shots and different exposure and discovered that 6 seconds on Shutter priority works best for my setup.
Here’s the final photo:
More to come on my next experiment 🙂
