1967 Le Mans OHC
I’ve been processing and stylizing this series a bit – in some cases quite a lot – going more for art than journalism. Here I tone it down and shoot for a more realistic rendering.
A commenter on Ello complimented me on the lighting here. However…
My instincts are pretty much always toward color, but I’m trying to learn black and white, as well. One shot, two treatments.
A guy in my building discovered that I sort of specialize in classic cars. Turns out he has a 1967 Le Mans he’s restoring. He asked if I’d be interested in doing a before and after thing. That’s not the sort of request I’m likely to refuse. So I went out Thursday and shot for an hour or two, and here’s the first one I have processed. No idea what his preferences are going to be like, so I’m going to do two or three looks early on to see what he responds to.
First, a relatively tame HDR look.
