After careful editing and dozens of photoshopped layers, the participants of the inaugural duPont REGISTRY automotive photography workshop have completed their process, and they are ready for you to choose your favorite one.
In January, the invitation was extended to photographers around the country to join us at our headquarters and take advantage of the opportunity to learn a new piece of equipment and a new lighting technique. Phase One shared a few of their IQ250 Camera Systems for the afternoon, allowing each photographer access to a camera with the widest usable ISO range of any high-end camera, capable of anything from 100 ISO to 6,400. Priced between $35,000 and $40,000, the IQ250 System is a powerful one to have your hands on.
When the ability of that camera is combined with Chris Garrison’s techniques, the final results are going to be undeniably impressive. Garrison demonstrated a light painting technique during the workshop, which combines long exposures with a Westcott Ice Light to highlight individual portions of the car. Dozens to hundreds of these photos are taken, and then combined in Photoshop to create one stunning final image.
Each of the photographers tried their hand at Garrison’s technique with Phase One’s camera, with a beautiful, lime green, 2015 McLaren 650S, courtesy of Dimmitt Automotive Group, as their subject.
