Ford Mustang GT shoot for Jack Daniels

20110715_0057 crunch

A Mustang is a smoking hot guitar. Seriously, it’s even cooler up close, and way cooler once you start the engine. I’m not a petrol-head by a long shot, but I can appreciate a well-built and appealing car. And this car is appealing. And I shot it. I can add it to the Nissan GT-R, Audi R8, Aston Martin DBs, Jag XFR’s and a host more seriously sick cars I’ve had the privilege to shoot.

The images are for Jack Daniels who is currently running a competition where you can win this desirable vehicle. So, I needed to make it look every bit as hot as it is. Also, the car will be presented in a very special way to the public, but I’m not sure if I’m at liberty to discuss that, so I’ll let you see the press for details.

It helps a lot when you’re shooting these type of things in a proper studio, fitted with a revolve, huge curve and proper lighting. BTW – the lighting was a mix of HMI and red-heads, Kinoflow and a DIY kino-vibe things, standing around in the studio. Normally I work with flash, but shooting cars with continuous light helps, as you’re always aware of what you’ll see even as you look at the car.

Here you can see two kino’s. I basically just used them for edging the black car on a black background. Top lighting and reflectors were the mains. 20110715_0021 crunch20110715_0068 crunch 20110715_0029 crunch 20110715_0030 20110715_0035 crunch  20110715_0054 crunch   20110715_0082 crunch 20110715_0095 20110715_0105 20110715_0114  20110715_0123And could you blame the team for wanting pics? Represented in the pics are Jack Daniels, Bletchley Park, Car Magazine, and … me.  20110715_0138 

And I couldn’t resist being photographed with the ultimate BAT-MOBILE!!!! This is so sad, I know, but I can’t help it. That car is just too hot. And I’m turning into a middle-aged teen-ager. Ok, that’s ott. A 32-year old teenager.  20110715_0140i
