    (Above: a 2014 Mercedes Benz CLS 550, in a dark grey with a hint of blue. Thanks to Tony Pinero for the car).  Ever since I started shooting cars, I've wanted to shoot one in a studio, but there have been a couple of obstacles. One being finding a studio with a really large white cove that's big enough to drive a car into, but the really big obstacle is to find one that has a giant car-sized softbox overhead (like the 10-foot x 30-foot F2X from Chimera, but the price is......the price is...well....see below). That gives you some idea of why, outside of Detroit, finding a studio with one of these with an affordable rental rate is pretty challenging. Well, it would be for a regular guy, but not for the amazing Brad Moore, who found Studio 75, a commercial rental studio set up…

    http://youtu.be/Q-x9esAkXKA#aid=P-uMMfKDHis Last week on my Facebook and Twitter pages, I posted a link to a Great article on Annie Leibovitz on "Getting the Shot, and the Future of Photography" over at FastCompany (shown below). I have to say, her new campaign for Disney has made me a Leibovitz fan. Really brilliantly done, and the article has some great insights about shooting portraits. Worth a read (and the Disney photos are seriously very special). Well, after I posted the link to the article (here's the link by the way ---- definitely worth the read: http://bit.ly/1aJjik5), a conversation started where some we're trying to give anyone but Annie the credit for the amazing shots. They wanted it to go to anyone from the set designer to the post production people to the hair and make-up --- anyone but her (and yes, it does take all of those folks…

    http://youtu.be/Y598ENDC9aQ First, watch that 60-second (or so) video above from Tim about his online class on shooting close-up detail shots of cars. I'll wait right here. [insert mental shot of me waiting]. ...see that didn't take long. Awesome, right? I know! After I posted some car shots I did a couple of weeks ago here on blog, and on my Facebook, Twitter and G+ pages, I had a lot of questions about the lighting and camera techniques and I wish I could take a lick of credit for any of it, but I learned it ALL from Tim's online classes. He's really an amazing teacher and he tells you EVERYTHING -- he doesn't hold anything back, which I totally love about him! (He's the real deal!) Anyway, if you'd like to watch Tim's class, we've set it up so that TODAY ONLY you can…

    http://youtu.be/TjUPh7FI4nQ Here's the behind-the-scenes video I mentioned on Tuesday from my car shoot at an airplane hangar (as luck would have it, the hanger was the exact same hangar at the airport where my wife flies out of). I used the Priolites again but I also used a new super-lightweight battery pack that let us take one of our Elinchrom studio strobes out on location (I did a quick demo of it on the video above). Anyway, we were planning on shooting two cars and a plane, and it turned it to a six-car, six-hour long shoot with two Ferraris (an F-430 and a California); a Devon GTX, a Rolls Royce Ghost, a Spyker, and a Audi R8. We were psyched! (Plus, I was finally going to get a full-body shot of the Audi R8 I did the detail shots of last month). Anyway,…

    OK, this is NOT a finished shot --- just a behind-the-scenes shot from a 6-hour long, six-car shoot in an airplane hangar. I was going to show the finished shots today and include a behind-the-scenes video about a new piece of gear we took out on location, but the video's not quite out of editing yet. Hoping for Friday. In the meantime, you can see two of the three lights used in the shoot ---- the one in the top left corner is one of those Priolites that we are totally digging on (here's a link to my Audi R8 shoot video and Prioite demo video), and the long strip bank near the rear of the car is an Elinchrom BXRI 500 (my go-to studio strobe) running off a very cool, very small, very lightweight, and very affordable battery pack (more on it on…

    Lightroom 5 is now shipping -- and to celebrate; one week from today you're invited to come join me, Julieanne Kost and Katrin Eismann for B&H Photo's "Lightroom Digital Photography Summit" It's a FREE, all-day learning event at the Javits Center, coming up on Monday, June 17th and if you're in the New York area, you gotta come down (you'll have loads of fun and you'll learn a bunch). I'll be showing some of my favorite Lightroom tips; I'm doing a live shoot (then handing off the images to Julieanne and Katrin to retouch and finish), plus a lot more. Seating is limited (and it's almost already sold out in advance), so grab your seat at "The Summit" right here. Hope you can join us. See you in New York next week! -Scott
