Mean Girls Photoshoot: Part 2 of 2

OK – pics from yesterday. I’ll be honest – I’m not particularly happy with any of the photos from yesterday. Not sure what it was… I think it was a combination of a bunch of things. 1) I’m not ashamed to say that I am fairly inexperienced at shooting multiple cars at once, let alone three cars at once and finding out how to position them. 2) When we wanted overcast, all we got was glare and JC’s car stood out like a rich white guy in the ghetto. 3) The locations were meh for me. Personally if the location doesn’t inspire me, the shoot ends up following the same path – not inspirational. The best shoots that I’ve done have always ended up being in new locations that really compliment the car. Not this time unfortunately.

Anywho – they turned out alright, but I’d like to do it again. I’ll probably equip myself with a polarizer for the next shoot to help out a bit. Next up will be Adam’s Civic and I’m really hoping to kill that shoot since his car is one of the cleanest looking in the city. I’m a big fan of his fitment even though it might not be everyone’s cup of tea – but I digress. You’ll see it when I shoot it.

Moving on!

IMG_3369 copyRooftop shoot. This was where I shot my car with JC’s car a few weeks ago. That shoot ended up being quite nice since it was two cars, but once you add three into the mix – headaches. LOL

IMG_3379 copyThis arrangement was a lot better.

IMG_3383 copy

IMG_3384 copyThis makes me wish I got a white fusa instead of a black one…

IMG_3400 copyWheel shot. So good.

IMG_3406 copyJC was able to get up onto the sidewalk to take some nice pics with the old scenery.

IMG_3414 copyThis was probably my favourite out of the whole shoot.

IMG_3425 copyQuick shot of Steve and Rich parked behind us. Peep Rich’s new headlight set up. Can’t wait to see it working.

IMG_3426 copySimilar set up to the roof top. Different location.

IMG_3430 copySide profile of Punit’s GS. I particularly love his wheel choice – great choice for the 3GS.

IMG_3439 copyUp close.

IMG_3449 copyAlso really love the rear and the way his fitment looks. The rear set up is super aggressive so it makes it look super beefy.

IMG_3459 copyFunny because I think I like the rear of my car the most too. Punit made the comment when we were shooting that he felt the same lol.

IMG_3461 copyThese little guys were all over the place at this location.

IMG_3478 copyAnother against the brick wall. Tried a little something different to have the GS rear in the shot. This was probably the best backdrop we had yesterday.

IMG_3482 copyShot of the LS again.

IMG_3483 copyFinally ending it with JC’s CT.

Overall – I feel like the shoot was missing something, but I’m content with the pics. Probably going to have to do another one until I’m satisfied. The most frustrating part of it all is having to move each car one at a time until you find a good position and if it doesn’t look good, you gotta move them again. PITA if you ask me…

I’ll make up for it with the next shoot!
