Break These Rusty Chains

I had a local shoot for a bike shop/performance shop Friday, got to shoot in an amazing place - a scrap yard.  Plenty of rusty items laying around that flowed quite well with the bike.  There's nothing worse than going to a place like that and seeing plenty of old cars buried in the grass, rotting away.  Cars that could've been saved.

I have a few favorite paint colors to photograph on vehicles; white, black, gray, and silver are at the top of the list.  White with silver wheels has to be the most favorable, of course white is such a clean color to begin with - it looks good on just about anything.

S8 Detail

The S8 needed some love in the paint department.  I gave my friend - who owns the car - a hand with a quick detail.  With a little time spent buffing, rubbing with a clay bar, and a coat of wax the paint looked much better than it did before.

Random Photo: Nissan GTR

I get asked frequently why I wanted to shoot this particular vehicle in a graveyard of all places.  To me its a very fitting location for this GTR, being that its black on black on black.  The location brings out the evil in the car...afterall, the Grim Reaper doesn't wear a white hooded robe.

Drift Faction July 15th

There's nothing like the smell of freshly cooked rubber on a warm July afternoon. 

See all the images from this July 15th event here.

The Audi S8

This 2001 Audi S8 is owned by a good friend of mine.  With simple modifications such as ST coilovers and MRR 20X9.5 +40 wheels with Falken 452 255/35-20 rubber at all four corners, to me it couldn't look any better.

Taking my time shooting this car made me really remember why I love shooting.  It was great to roll around to different spots and just shoot for the fun of shooting.  No time limits.  No stress.

To see more of this clean S8; check out my Flickr gallery of 41 images of this car Here.
