Revving up your Automotive images to get you noticed.
Why would you need an Automotive Photographer?
There’s a lot more to successfully photographing vehicles than just pointing our camera and pressing the shutter release. The genre is were I got my start in professional photoraphy and discovered I could make money from what was at the time, my hobby.
Since my first feature was published, I’ve worked with some of the best known names in the specialist motoring sector. I still submit features and get published regularly and have hundreds of features and many covers to my name.
What makes a good Motoring shot?
For me, it’s all about how the light hits the vehicle, if you’re not happy with what you are looking at, then either move the vehicle or change where you are standing but don’t shoot the shady side. Not every shot should be from the same angle, it helps to go up or down, I’ve climbed up trees and gotten onto shipping containers to get the shot I’m looking for.
I use off-camera flash and have a pair of high-powered, battery operated lights to help, not requiring power cables means I can take photos literally anywhere I can get the equipment and know I’ll be happy with the results.
Dealing with reflections
I’ve got a range of specialist filters that are used to help in getting that perfect shot, but sometimes you can’t get it straight out of the camera and some post-production magic is required. I use a Circular Polarising filter to cut down on any unwanted reflections, this is especially useful when it comes to removing glare from windscreens.
It’s always cool to see images of vehicles on the move and there are a few ways this can be achieved. Firstly from the back of an accomanying vehicle travelling at the same speed. Second, a boom or specialist rig is attached to the vehicle being photographed, it’s rolled at a slow speed and a longer shutter speed is used to capture the motion or finally, the effect can be achieved virtually using Photoshop.
