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.
We’ve shared some epic toy photos here on DIYP, and young Anthony Schmidt has just joined the group of artists I’m very proud to present. This boy is only 12 years old and he is on the autism spectrum. He has a big passion for toy cars, but they don’t just sit in his room. He takes pretty awesome photos of his toy cars making them look life-sized, using only a smartphone. Anthony is currently on a mission to publish his photo book, and he already raised the impressive $42,000.
