Location. Location. Location. Automotive photography is all about location. To create an autumn-look for an upcoming promo, we found an amazing tree tunnel in Beverly Hills with bright yellow/green leaves. Attaching a carbon fiber extension off the Mercedes' frame, we were able to capture a long-exposure image, blurring the background, and still keeping the vehicle in sharp focus. Bits of Photoshop are also used to freeze the rims to reduce motion blur. Another bonus of shooting inside tree tunnels: The lining of trees creates a blanket of soft light, the time of day is irrelevant. That means no more waiting 'til Magic Hour...go get yourself a cold one instead.
