The pandemic might have limited our traveling, but India-based photographer Kunal Kelkar found a way to shoot a car on an Italian coast without leaving India. Well, sort of. He took some epic shots of Lamborghini Urus by simply placing it next to a swimming pool. And the car isn’t really a car – it’s a scale model that just looks so real in Kunal’s images. We spoke to this creative photographer about his process, and he told us more about how he turned this idea into reality.
Motorsports are moving online due to the coronavirus pandemic, but it appears that automotive photographers are also finding new ways of shooting fast cars in action. Kunal Kelkar is a pro automotive photographer who has found a brilliant way to shoot fast cars without leaving his home. He put a model car onto a treadmill and got some epic photos that look like the real deal. Kunal shared some of his photos and BTS shots with DIYP, so check them out to see how to take fantastic photos of racing cars at full speed – all while staying indoors.
From time to time, we get to see DIY photography ideas that are so funny, yet so brilliant. Using a beer helmet as a speedlight holder is definitely one of them. A Japanese photographer who goes by the nickname @nishihiro0312 uses this cheap party helmet to light his images, and he mounts speedlights and even diffusers onto it.
When you think of a photography genius, who comes to your mind first? Do you think you can reach his or her level of brilliance? Well, according to an encouraging video from The School of Life: you can. We are taught to admire the ideas, minds, and works of geniuses. We are also taught to believe their thought process is mysterious and beyond our reach. However – it isn’t as complicated as it seems. What’s more, you are most likely a genius, too.
