I love this picture, when I was a US soldier stationed in Germany, I had a 69 1/2 Camaro Z-28, Camaro's first larger car. I loved doing this on the coble stone, but I also got in some trouble hot rodding around Heidelberg. You photos are very well done.

My parents had a red 68 fastback like this except it wasn't a GT. They were a bit more conservative so no big tires or smoking wheels. I remember going to the dealership to pick it up and I was looking at the cars they had on display inside and trying to talk them into getting a light green Shelby Cobra instead. They should have listened to me.

It sure is. The only one known with a 427 cobra at the moment.

Behind The Lens

Location
During a magazine shoot in 2015 along a not so trafficed road.
Time
Late afternoon in October, I believe it was.
Lighting
For this shoot I use all natural light. It was a beautiful sunny day so my only trouble was the curvy road. I had to place myself for the light to hit right. Can't do too much about the road.
Equipment
Nikon D7100 and nikkor 24-70 mm f2.8, pro polarizer filter, handheld.
Inspiration
It was a magazine shoot. I had asked if the driver wanted to burn some rubber. He did. It's always popular to see and read about. The photo itself isn't good enough for publication as it's blurry in the front of the car, but it was good enough to post on my private page as a teaser. People seemed to love it.
Editing
Yes, I made the background sepia and enhaced the over all details in PS for a more 3D effect, sort of.
In my camera bag
Nikon D7100, 10-24mm, 24-70mm, 70-200mm, a remote release, spare battery, notepad and pen.
Feedback
I already mention that it's not the ultimate image. It has blur in the wrong places, but panning is a fun way of photographing. I suggest going to a more trafficed road, stand along side and just practice the movement - side to side. At a far away angle you will get blur where you don't want to but when you get the vehicle centered in the camera view (approx 45 degress to the left and right with you in the center) and you're moving the lens along in the same pace, you will have a wicked speed shot. It takes some practice but it's kind of fun. Note: If the vehicle is moving right in front of the lens, two things could happen: 1. You get a pic of the front of the vehicle but no motion blur. 2. You get a blurry photo. The second is most likely to happen. Good luck! :-)
