Classic Mercedes Roadster

This image of a beautifully restored Classic Mercedes roadster was photographed at the Mercedes Benz Classic Center in Irvine, CA, USA. If you want to restore a Benz to it’s original beauty and preformance that’s the place to take it...they truly have some incredible cars there. I was wondering if these gems were there because after the restoration is completed, the owners can’t afford to pay the bill… Just kidding of course! When photographing shinny cars indoors, especially in a busy environment, reflections can be a problem, more so the darker the paint is. A circular polarizer can help, but mainly, the position of the car within the space is the best way to minimize reflections or get them to work with you.

Photographed with a Nikon D5 and a 70-200 VRII zoom on a tripod.. Some off camera flash was used from a 200W Godox on a stand and a small reflector bounced of the wall camera right.

Location: Irvine, CA.
