I don't have anything to say Lucille and I am speechless. You are so talented and camera is really not an issue for u . Now I have one suggestion . Can u compile all ur car shots under one thread like ..
Super sexy car portraits - An ongoing thread by Lucille and the u keep on posting those shots there .. We are very lucky to have you in this forum Lucille . Keep it up .Please do tell us about the lighting .
Hats off to u again Lucille and its sheer talent which matters the most and not camera . Now I am curious what u are gonna do with ur PL25 mm 1.4 lens
Excellent juxtaposition between the iridescent Mazda blue and the New Mexico orange colored sky. Reminds me of the Natalie Cole song.
That 3AAA, 9-LED flashlight's output tends to gravitate heavily towards the blue end of the light spectrum with a color temperature of 8000-9000 Kelvin. This adds to the patina of the automobile; however, does not appear to affect way the camera interprets the hue of the backdrop.
Nice use of the cheapie light's output to the advantage of the overall image even tho you may not have intended it that way.
I really need to get out and try this. I've got a couple cars begging for this treatment. I've already got the camera, lens and torch. I just need a wash, a wax, a good location and some cooperation from the weather.
I second the motion to make a separate thread for all these awesome shots!
