Sunrise Photoshoot – 2011-10-02

My friend had the brilliant idea to do a shoot in front of Patrick Air Force Base at sunrise this past Sunday. I have never done a car shoot at sunrise, especially with artificial light. The goal with the shots was to capture the colors of the sunrise, properly expose the car, and keep the sky from blowing out. Accomplishing this would keep the amount of time spent in post processing to a minimum.

My friend taught me a cool trick to remove the flash hot spot. It definitely helped.
