How To Light A Lamborghini
When I was a kid I had a prized poster on my wall: a black-on-black 1984 Lamborghini Countach. It was a gorgeous car, and a gorgeous photo. But not nearly as jaw-dropping, on either count, as Blair Bunting's new photograph of a 2012 Lamborghini Aventador. Blair may be best known as the photographer of athletes and awesome reality TV shows with the gritty realist style, but he also photographs cars. And when he was asked to shoot a Lamborghini so that the folks at F-stoppers could make a video of it, Blair jumped at the chance. He breaks down the how and the why on his blog, and you can also watch the finished video there too. It's a great behind-the-scenes with a talented young photographer shooting a gorgeous dream car. And I think it's neat to see how simple it is to photograph such an exotic subject—as long as you've got the right light.
