Nice truck. It looks like a tug-boat.
- Paul Gross, on having a Hummer drive past during a sound check.

Cars are today's mythology. Our various societies and cities are built around them, where we live and work is determined by them, and they control the shape of our lives is in fundamental ways. They can be seen as mechanical marvels, perfected sculpture, self expression, freedom: or as many of the seven deadly sins in vehicular form. Pride, envy, gluttony, sloth... they consume resources while they open up vast possibilities.

They're also pretty.

Simple or complex, we all have relationships with cars. For this assignment, decide what you think of cars and make the photographs that show your opinions.

Happened accross some old firetrucks on display and snapped a lot of photos. Funny this was my favorite. It is of the front grill of one of them, cropped, turned 90 degrees and I played with it a bit to make the chrome look like I wanted it. Maybe it's just me, but this is now an 8x10 on my office wall.

Otto,
I like this treatment very much. This would make one heck of a garage calender shot.
Would you mind sharing a basic technique to arrive at this?

Thanks

Thanks Jim,

I like the effect that HDR images can display. The technique is fairly simple. A series of shots are taken at one, or two, exposures above, and below, a "normal" exposure. Then these are generated into an HDR image using HDR software. Then the rendered HDR image is put through a tone-mapping process to arrive at the final result. This can have a fairly "normal", or "surreal", look depending on how the various adjustments are made in the software. I use Photomatix Pro from www.hdrsoft.com (http://www.hdrsoft.com) , and you can download a fully functional trial version to try out. There are several other software offerings as well, but it seems Photomatix Pro seems to be the most popular. There are now a couple of good books about the HDRI process now available as well.

Hope this is helpful.

Kind of a missed shot of a new Chevrolet Camaro SS. I tried to pan the car but ended up with this shot. Not too bad after all...

For the price, this is the ultime muscle/speed car. I had the privilege of making a small ride in one and let me tell you, it's impressive. The acceleration is very strong and you quickly end up in the rear end of a car in front... The look is also priceless, it's the kind of car you are going to look at in 25 years and say : That IS a nice car!

Is that a '59 or '60 VeeDub? One of my first cars. Blew a rod right out the side of #3 and drove it home.

This automobile was recorded as being built in Barcelona and the body is believed to have been designed and built by Henry Binder of France. It was built on order by a king who was deposed before he could take delivery. (Most likely it was George II who was king of Greece from 1922-1923.)
The car was bought by the Hollywood director D.W. Griffith for $35,000.
LA HISPANO SUIZA FABRICA DE AUTOMOVILES, S.A. was founded in 1904 in Barcelona by Damian Mateu and other Spanish capitalists. The engineering of it was given to the young Swiss engineer Marc Birkigt who had been working in Spain since 1900. Literally translated, Hispano-Suiza means Spanish-Swiss, designating the engineer and the investors.
From 1904 to 1914 Birkigt designed several different engines for La Hispano Suiza , starting with the 20/24 h.p., a water cooled, side valves, 4-cylinder designed in 1904 and going to piston supercharged racing engines. He designed the first 4 cylinder 16 valve engine and the car considered to have been the very first real sports car in history, the Hispano Suiza 45 Cr. The 15T or Alfonso XIII model was derived from the series of long-stroke, four-cylinder racing cars which the company made in 1910. It was called the "Alfonso XIII" after the King of Spain, who bought the first model Hispano made in 1905 and was a great enthusiast of the brand (owning some 30 of them during his reign).
In 1911, La Hispano Suiza opened a factory in Paris, France to meet the demand of the French market, particularly the racy Alfonso XIII. The factory in France became larger than the original one built in Barcelona.
At the outbreak of WWI, Hispano Suiza turned to making aircraft engines and introduced the revolutionary Hispano Suiza V8. It was an excellent engine and in great demand by the allies. The famous WWI French ace Georges Guynemer, flew a SPAD VIII which was powered by the Hispano-Suiza engine. He also drove a Hispano-Suiza car. The elegant flying stork was his squadron emblem, and appeared on the radiator caps or hoods of all Hispano-Suizas after his death in 1917. In the 1920's the Hispano Suiza became more known as a French automobile, as the models built near Paris were more glamorous and expensive than their Spanish cousins. The Hispano Suiza H6 became the star of the 1919 Paris Motor Show. Birkigt's experience designing aircraft engines transferred to this powerful automobile. Hispano Suiza also was the first car to have four wheel brakes using a mechanical servo assistance and surpassed the Rolls Royce in performance.
