Before and After with a blue Camaro in Miami.

I wanted to share with you a before/after comparison with one of my photos. Automotive photography is a lot more involved that what most people think, at least for me it is. This cool little comparison tool will allow to see the the differences from what the camera captures to what the final product is after the post-processing is done…

A while ago we were called by the guys at Nessen Forged to photograph this amazing 2010 5th Generation Camaro that was wrapped by The Signs Savers. Nessen had a very defined idea of what they wanted. Something dark, almost scary looking that would contrast nicely with the blue matte Camaro. The location, in Miami, that we found was great and it worked perfectly. Who would have known that a parking garage in Downtown Miami could have been this cool looking?

I put this cool little slider for you to see the differences between the before photo and the after. Use the slider bar on the photo to compare each one. The “before” image is straight out of the the camera with nothing done to it. The “after” photo is after all the exposures have been merged and the post-processing done.

You can use the links on each side of the photo to toggle between them as well. Enjoy! And feel free to ask any questions!

As you can see, I made the background a lot darker and added a lot more contrast. I made sure that you couldn’t see outside, as I wanted less distractions. I removed some things that didn’t add anything to the photo. Like the stop sign. As far as the car, that’s where the fun starts. I used quite a bit of exposures to get the lighting of the Camaro just right and that’s where I spent most of the time. Once all was said and done it was just a matter of adding other details like the glare from the light and other small stuff. Make sure you see the entire set of this Matte Blue Camaro in my project page.
