I sent the truck / log photo to a buddy of mine in Los
Hi is a professional photographer who owns his own
Stage / Studio. Equipped with a Cyc and a motorized turntable that is flush with the stage floor, he is a specialist- he shoots cars for a living.
Not far from LAX and the port of LA, the manufacturers ship all manner of stuff in for him to shoot…. Secret
Cars, not-yet-released cars, even styling mock-ups to
see how the design works in the flesh.
They will ship in super heavy full-size clay models,
And you could stand next to them and not pick up
on the fakery. With limo tint ( silver sometimes) on the glass
Windows, with all of the trim, lights, wheels and such, they
don’t look anything like a mock up - and they’ll have
A metallic paint color, which is a vinyl wrap….it is
astounding the lengths they go to….
And that is before the computer gets fired up.
He can shoot the new S-something Audi on his stage,
and by the time that image is printed in the dealer’s brochure , that Audi looks all the world like it was shot
zooming across a vacant Golden Gate Bridge at sunset, and it was Shot on stage and only on stage..
The software is amazing and better all of the time…
The motion Blur, etc., and a still photo is a piece of cake
Compared to a motion picture.
He’ll crack the code in two seconds.
