Big picture's

Discussion in 'The Hokey Ass Message Board' started by EXK, Dec 19, 2011.

  1. I just figuared out how to post bigger pictures so i though i would share this one. We recently had a mag photo shot at the shop and they sent me this one pic of Tim's merc as a big tease. We will have to wait till its close to print to see the other pic's they took:(. [​IMG]

    Rad! It looks like a painting. Poster size for the garage would be nice.

    Amazing car, for some reason it almost looks like the car was shot in a studio and photoshopped over a photo of the shop. It really stands out in front of the background.

    I just turned the laptop around and showed it to Jean, "WOW, what a beautiful color", was her comment.
  8. Beautiful Mercury and a real nice shot!
  9. That looks like a calendar shot! Beautiful !!!

    looks photoshopped or ?? not straight from the camera unless a unique lense was used. unique lighting for inside.. looking close at the curve of the hood or back of the roof, it looks like a black outline. just does not look real.

    its a cool picture thou and a really neat Merc.

    Pretty neat that the photographer gave you permission to post it on the internet before the article came out.

  21. I watched them do this shots and many others of it. It was interesting to watch there procces. They brought in some very big light boxes that they would setup and snap a few pics while adjusting the lighten. Then they would move the light boxs and snap a bunch more pics. They moved the light boxs about 5 or 6 times to get one pic. The photografher told me they take the best part of many pics and overlay them to make one real good picture.
