Poor Lost Studebaker

Poor Lost Studebaker

This was a fun image to process, the weathering of the car was so interesting that I had to go B&W and crank up the contrast to show all the texture. What I like about shooting digital and converting to B&W is that you can adjust each color’s luminosity and saturation thereby changing what shows, for example, I adjusted the red (rust) to go black and the blue of the car to go white.

I found this little guy in the lot of a small repair shop along I94 while helping my friend Crystal pick up her new (to her) Ranger. I didn’t notice until I was processing the image that the truck in the background says ‘Daggett’ — my friend Doug Daggett is running for congress.

Behind the scenes of the Dragon Ball photo shoot, you can see Preston and Nick assembling the elements of light. Preston (on the left) is igniting a flammable substance from a can (I know what it was, but in the interests of responsibility, I’m not telling you) and Nick is waving a cool blue light stick to create a ‘force field’ then posing for the strobe light. You can see what the image is supposed to look like by checking out the photos taken by 2 dozen + other photographers that were there (on the far side of the action).
