I always wanted to do a Halloween picture of an orange car. The colour was already a tough requirement, so I had no specific brand or model in mind, as long as it’s orange. Initially, I thought about a typical Halloween props like pumpkins (a lot of pumpkins), spider webs and stuff, but decided to go against it and tweak my idea a bit. Now it was “a moody shot with clouds, full moon and stuff, still orange”. It supposed to be all about the car with a little Halloween twist, rather than pumpkin-orange-madness.
There are different approaches to automotive photography, but I love strobing cars in the natural environment. I knew this is what I have to do this time. Even before I managed to take any photos, I already had a background image prepared, and prettty good idea how the car has to be positioned and where the light should be. Now I need to take some pics… simple, right? :)
