My first shoot of 2017 and it's a double whammy. Both a set of photos taken at multiple locations AND a video, what a treat for your eyes! I met George through Collide earlier last year and even before this I'd seen pictures of his 350z. I got in touch to shoot the car and learned that it would be up for sale very soon, so seized the opportunity before it went. These are the results!
Our first location was just outside Burghley House, Stamford. There are so many entrances to Burghley, but as we searched around for one where we wouldn't disrupt anyone, we found a white gate, perfect for George to park up next to for a few snaps. I used the Sigma 24-70mm for the first few, not giving me the depth of field that the 50mm 1.4 has to offer, but provides a sharp, detailed image all round. Moving on we went into the grounds and parked up near the front of the house. It wasn't busy so we had no issues with people or cars getting in shot. Here I used the 50mm for some closer, more detailed photos along with the 70-300mm for a more zoomed in profile shot.

Our next location was Rutland Water, we were able to park up right next to the water making for a fantastic background, here we got some more profile shots of the car using the 50mm and a few close ups and a shot with George. We got lucky with the weather too, using only natural light all day but also capturing the crisp blue sky above the water.
Our final location saw us returning to an office estate in Stamford. It backed onto the A1 and some fields so as the sun started to set we got some great colours and lens flares to work with. We also used this location for the rolling shots in the video at the top of this post. Overall I'm super happy with how these came out, couldn't have started off the year any better.
