Love the 'sharky' nose of the E21.

Behind The Lens

Location

A friend of mine wanted to sell his car. He asked me if I would take some pictures of his 1980 BMW 318i for him. Although I usually take landscape pictures, I gladly accepted.

Time

After we took some pictures in the underground garage we went outside on this sunny day - at noon - to take some more pictures. Of course I had some difficulties to get the shadows under control, but the car is a real beauty and wonderful in any light.

Lighting

As I usually shoot landscape - i do not had any chance of bringing some artificial light on the set. As I just own none of this :)

Equipment

Just my Olypmus OMD E-M1 II with the Olymups 12-40 Pro Lens.

Inspiration

I love close up shots - i wanted to transport the elegance and the atmosphere looking at a car like this.

Editing

Only the usual Lightroom editing. Highlights - Shadows and some minor cross tonality in the shadows to emphazize on the car's color.

In my camera bag

I own a Olympus OMD E-M1 II, the holy trinity of lenses (7-14, 12-40, 40-150 Olypmus Pro Lens) a 3leggedthing tripod - and some filters - thats it - always try to travel light.

Feedback

Hard to say because I don't really have experience in this kind of photography. At the end listen to your feelings and try to capture them in the pictures. Especially if you don't have the opportunity to build up a clean photo set that would certainly help with this kind of photography. Try to work out details to awaken the emotions that the subject awakens in you.
