Shooting a car does not necessarily mean shooting the entire car. According to renowned car photographer Tim Wallace, it is just as important to take a step closer.
“One of the big things that we spend a lot of time doing is shooting the actual element of the car, the detail,” says Tim. “It’s part of the personality of the car. It defines, really, what that car is. And when we look at shooting detail, light really does come into its element.”
One of Tim’s favorite techniques when shooting detail is to create contrast by bringing a softbox up close – a technique he talks about in this video.
