Automotive Photography

There is nothing quite like the thundering growl of a big V8 or the banshee scream of a small turbo engine. And there are few things as beautiful as a perfectly designed car that screams speed while sitting still, or the rugged toughness of a true off road vehicle. Whether you think of a sports car, a go anywhere truck or a funky classic car, cars have defined the American landscape and our personality. Their presence is ubiquitous and every car has its own personality.

Capturing that character and beauty of the cars around us with a camera can be challenging. Cars offer unique complication that photographers don’t face with other forms of photography.

During this workshop we will learn to capture compelling image of cars and focus on overcoming the complications in lighting and composition they offer. We’ll start with using off camera lighting with cars including strategies of dealing with reflection and glare. We’ll talk about finding defining details to document each cars unique personality.

THIS CLASS WILL NOT MEET AT PRECISION CAMERA . The class will meet at ROC Austin Studio, 1515 Dungan Ln, Suite 200, Austin, TX, 78754.
