I’m still coming to terms with my new camera, so excuse me for not discussing it in great detail just yet.
In the meantime, I spent a little time on Saturday playing with some flashes and a more conventional white background.
Earlier in the year, after another round of painful set-up with improvised boxes and pieces of card and cloth, I decided to buy a simple background stand. I choose this PhotoSel stand since it was cheap and I had the Amazon vouchers. I’m not convinced of the quality of it – a few pieces are very tight when put together and hard to disassemble, but as a little home background set it does the job.
I wasn’t as happy with the treatment of these as I was with the Jaguar shot, but thought they were worth sharing anyway.
I liked the spokes on this. The car was pristine, but the wheels just shone. The keen eyes may notice the reflection is slightly warped – that’s because I cloned out some writing across the centre of the hub.
I’m not sure what type of cars any of these shots came from. If anyone knows, let me know?
