“Nissan Juke Nismo”

As promised in my last post, I would bring you more images from the 2014 Detroit NAIAS that happened last month.

The first image is a full color detail, or abstract of the Nissan Juke Nismo. A sporty little high performance car from Nissan. I felt particularly drawn to it for its lines, curves, and beautiful sleek details.

I love doing this type of abstract from automobiles. You’ll find quite a few of my images done in this way. They make such great subjects!!

This image was processed in Lightroom, and a quick bounce into Nik Color Effex Pro before coming back into Lightroom for the final touches.

This next image is of the same car (Nissan Juke Nismo). I processed it first in Lightroom, then in Nik Silver Effex Pro to give it a nice monochrome polish! I usually go with a straight Selenium finish on cars, which is cooler in tone, but this time I decided to go a bit warmer before bringing it back into Lightroom to finish it off.

I hope you enjoy these two images. I might bring you some architectural photography next week, as that happens to be what I’m currently working on! 🙂

“Curving Light”

In a way I’m backing up a bit in this post. Still in abstract mode, but going auto, as in automobile!! 🙂
Going back to January, and the time of the NAIAS in Detroit! Well as most of you know, at all these auto shows there are a ton of flashing multicolored lights everywhere, boat loads of people, and many other distractions that can make getting the shot you want of a car a bit hard.
I came away with plenty of nice shots, and even some of the SRT Viper, which is the car used in this image. I really loved the bright yellow, and the way the vents on the hood curve, soooo in addition to regular shots, I also got this one as an abstract.
Yes it is bright, shiny, full of light, flashy, and don’t forget, bright yellow….but that’s what it’s all about!! Right!! 🙂
This car is really a totally cool sports car, and truth be told, when I was a child, I always wanted to own a bright yellow Porsche. Hhhmmm, I guess I could settle for the SRT Viper instead!! 😉
How about you? What type of car did you want as a child?
