This was a challenging and fun project comprised of beauty stills, car-to-car motion images, and an intensive showroom shot for an editorial client. Taking the GT40 and Mustang GT500 replica to the streets of Las Vegas definitely turned heads. While the vehicles were eye candy driving around town, romping the cars through the McCarran Airport tunnel was a symphonic treat for the ears.
The biggest challenge of the shoot was the interior showroom image. After arranging the cars within inches of each other on the showroom floor, we captured 84 separate images while individually lighting all the cars with studio lights. While only taking about an hour to capture the image, the layering and masking of the 84 images during retouching took nearly 11 hours. But it was well worth the work.
