#lifewithjson – Year in Review Part 4/4

The season finale! Part 4 is more of a “Jason gets a schwack load of car parts”… But it’s still worth it 🙂

Jackie was able to help me out and I bought a set of TE37SL’s off of Ben at AJR. I also bought the Voltex wing on my STI off of Ben because of Jackie… Good times.

9.5 +40 for you “specs?” dudes.

I decided to make the trip up to Edmonton to shoot Scott’s car.

No I didn’t – that’s a lie. I was up there for work and instead of roam Deadmonton (no offense to my fellow Edmontonians – I love West Ed), I decided to reach out and shoot while I was there.

Scott came out with his S2000 and it was a good shoot indeed…

#PumpkinSpiceLatte was the hashtag of the day for this one…

This shoot was a seriously last minute shoot… And it turned out incredible. It’s funny how things work out… There have been shoots that we’ve been planning for months and when we finally get to do it, I’m just not feelin’ it. I don’t know what it is, but there are certain cars that just beg to be shot and work for the camera. Then there are other cars that are like “I want a photoshoot” but get all shy and cover their tits because they don’t feel comfortable… That’s how I would compare my bad photoshoots to my good photoshoots LOL. Almond’s car worked the camera hard that night if you know what I mean…

This is also going to sound super weird but during Almond’s shoot, I felt like I had a “level up!” moment. What I mean by that is there have been moments during my time as a photographic being where I felt I took on a new approach and saw things differently than I usually did. I was inspired, I had new angles, I thought of new ideas and looked at the car differently through the lens.

You’ll probably be able to see a significant difference from all of the photoshoots I’ve done during these “Year in Reviews” to Almond’s photoshoot. I changed my style and edit, I changed practically everything about how I shot this car.

I know it’s sounding nerdy, but I just thought I’d put my two cents in while I could. Anyway – LEVEL UP

This shot was so perfect. The colors, the car, the everything. PERFECT.

Look, JC has also leveled up and is multi-tasking with his cellphone and a lens.

Loved this one too. So artsy fartsy.

Also tried on the TE’s one day just to see what it would look like…

I was also convinced that day that I hated red and was looking for new colors for weeks. I have now come to the conclusion that I might like it. I’m very indecisive… We’ll see how it pans out when it’s all put together and on the ground.

Mike’s Karmann Ghia was definitely one of the most unique shoots I’ve ever done and I loved it. It’s not everyday you see one of these…

Another shot where the light just worked so perfectly for us.

Gas station hang outs…

Who rocked the Cholo pattern better? Just kidding.

December is the month for new parts!

A sigh of relief fell over me as I took the stock junk ball off.

IMG_6688 copy

Another big purchase was coils. I can’t wait to get these bad boys on.

And finally – a nice gift from my good friends JC, Punit, and Gopesh, my sister Julee and of course my wiferz Diana. Also can’t wait to slap this bad boy on…

Done! And that’s a wrap for 2014!! Happy New Year!!
