Porsche Club Project

My Porsche Club magazine cover is coming along quite well. The first part has been done. I took quite a few pictures of downtown Charlotte from just at dusk until night – about a 2 hour span.

Now that we have the background it’s time to get the foreground shot. Of course the centerpiece for a Porsche magazine would have to be a Porsche. So we took a Porsche 993 and took it to the top of a parking garage to take some pictures.

It was a really nice day with a beautiful clear blue sky and warm temps. It was a simple matter of parking the car and the taking shots from various angles to see what we liked. I started off with the camera on the tripod just above bumper level and taking some shots. The main goal was to capture the lines of the car and to give a somewhat exaggerated sense of size. That’s pretty easy, just use a short lens and move in.

I wanted to capture from the front bumper to the middle of the door. There are plenty of shots of the whole car, but it’s mainly side angles not just a flat shot of the side of the car.

I also took the camera off the tripod and lay on the ground to take some shots. I like the angle looking up, it makes the car loom and seem even bigger.

I think the shots came out very well and I’ve already got ideas on how to use many of the shots for other projects.
