A 'C' plate Golf GTi, a real classic if you are a car fan. Trying a bit of an advertising shot for my son's garage and thus comments of interest. This is one of quite a few images with different lighting and treatment. The car had come in in poor condition and this is the end product of 4 weeks work and a very large bill.
Stripped down, paint job, engine rebuild, new wheels and so on.
The setting is always going to be difficult and a nice country scene would be nice, but this is to advertise the garage. Ambient light reading with Sekonic hand meter, 1/30 @ f11 and ISO400. (Not very bright!) Flash on manual on tripod to the left rear quarter, hand held flash to the right high up looking down. Both with diffusers and radio trigger.
EOS 7D on tripod with 10/20 Sigma at about 28 mm actual. Some work with dodge and burn tools which may be a bit obvious and too much? But done to accent car with darker surroundings.
Does it make you look? That's obviously the idea. The sign will be readable on the A3 prints. Whilst any comment is relevant, of course, remember what is the intent - 'come and have your car worked on at this garage.'
