Feb 16, 2015, I sold my 2013 BMW X5 x35i and got this… A Jeep?!? Let me backtrack, before I purchased the X5, I was driving a 2009 Toyota FJ Cruiser for 4 years. I loved the FJ Cruiser, its a no-nonsense car that can go anywhere and I loved it; helped a lot with a lot of photography projects and shoots. Since it doesn’t have a lot of “luxury” features, I guess, you always crave the thing you don’t have… When I got a good deal on the BMW, I purchased it with no hesitation and sold the FJ. Until now, I still regretted selling the FJ, I should have just kept it. The BMW X5 is probably the best driving vehicle I have ever owned.. BUT, I can’t really take it anywhere; worried about breaking or scratching it.. So, when a good offer for a modified 2015 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited from the dealer here, I grabbed it and sold the BMW. My brother also purchased the same model Jeep but in white.
Here it is:
It is a 4 door Tank Green 2015 Jeep Wrangler with 3.6L Pentastar Engine and it is lifted from the dealer with 2 inch Mopar lift and 285 sized tires. I did modify and add a few things, like changing the sound system, adding an on-board air compressor, axle reinforcements, LED headlights and so on…
Here’s my brother’s Jeep:
In terms of lighting, this has been shot using a single flash which was popped all around the car and blended together in post. The good part about this technique is that you don’t need to carry a lot of light or strobes with you; it is more of a run and gun setup so to speak. I wouldn’t probably do it for a professional shoot with a client but this technique can be used in a pinch with minimal gears. I guess, it depends on the situation.
