A car is never just a car, particularly a luxury car like a Porsche. Just as each image should tell a story, so does every car. One photographer who understands this is automobile light painter Dominykas Liberis from Vilnius, Lithuania. Every one of his images and car portraits oozes personality, elevating them from ‘just a car’ to each having a story of its own. We found out how he went about photographing this vintage Porche 911.
Porsche: lighting and photographing the racing icons
Photographing a Porsche is a special experience for me, as I am a racing fan, and Porsche is racing. They are the essence of speed on the curving tracks they have graced around the world, and on a photoshoot they are just as incredible sitting still. It is for this and many other reasons that I count myself lucky to stand behind the camera while photographing the art pieces that are Porsche race cars.
Today I wanted to show some that you may have seen before, as well as some that have not been shown until now. Each car is unique in its pedigree and history, but all share the common trait of being absolutely stunning in front of the camera. While there are many that can go into great detail about every turn these cars have taken, I cannot, but I can describe what it was like to photograph them.
New Porsche convertible 2-in-1 takes aim at the MacBook Pro
This kinda reminds me a little of the Ferrari branded Hasselblad. A brand jumping into another completely different industry for no apparent reason. Except that this doesn’t just seem like a fancy paint job for a pre-existing product. Porsche Design have teamed up with Intel, Microsoft and Quanta Computer to launch the first of what they say will be a new Porsche Design Computing product line.
The Porsche Design Book One is a high end 2-in-1 convertible Windows 10 device. Which is a weird, but cool idea. Most laptops-that-aren’t-really-laptops are either one or the other. They’re either a convertible OR a 2-in-1 with a removable keyboard. This is both. The screen will rotate up to a full 360 degrees on a hinge inspired by the transmission of a sports car. It’ll also flip around for reverse mounting. Or you can completely remove the keyboard and turn it into a Windows tablet.
How To Shoot a Porsche With Minimal Gear
Me and some friends were practicing our photography with cars and wanted to shoot his Porsche. We were only shooting the car inside his garage and didn’t have a studio that can fit a whole car so we did what we could. We tried shooting the Porsche with studio strobes and a couple of speedlights but we also wanted to do something different.
Long time ago, when I started playing around with light painting, I light-painted my guitar using a piece of flashlight. I thought it would be really cool if I used the same technique only using a really big subject (say, a Porsche) and a really big light source. The results are spectacular, and this is definitely something you can try at your own garage.[Read More…]
