The Smith’s 1955 Chevrolet

The Smiths invited me to their home to photograph Mr. Smith’s classic 1955 Chevrolet. He has owned it for 40 years and obviously takes exceptional care of it. Of course you can plan a shoot right down to the minute, but mother nature doesn’t adhere to human planning. Rain began coming down about halfway through. I worked deliberately and quickly to make sure we nailed at least a few different setups before the baby had to go back in the garage.

From a gear standpoint I shot with very little. Mainly with a Canon 6D and a Yongnuo 560IV Speedlite sometimes with an umbrella or a stackable grid. Lenses were a mix between the Sigma 50mm f/1.4 and Canon EF 28mm f/1.8.

1950 Chevrolet Deluxe Pin-up Girls

High time I did another pin-up themed model shoot with two of my favorite fellow artists, Karen (makeup) and Tracey (hair). Brian from Wayne’s Speed Shop was kind enough to let us use his sweet 1950 Chevrolet Deluxe coupe and he also picked out the location. Good work, Brian!

We started just as the sun dipped, which gave us a nice scene to sculpt with speedlites and a big ole softbox hooked up to my ABR800.

It was a hilarious shoot as usual with this bunch and a few of the locals came to check it out. Including some dude that claimed to be a Hell’s Angel. There is no way this guy was one of them either. You can’t go around lying about something like that, sir!

Want to schedule a shoot with me? Take a look at my photography work and contact me.
