This image of a Lamborghini Gallardo was photographed at the Segerstrom Center in Costa Mesa, CA for one of our clients. They were about to put it up for sale, having acquired a newer model, so we did a series of images for a small album about the car. It’s hard to find an unflattering angle when shooting a Lambo, but the low angle and the out of focus, monochromatic background help the car pop out. The use of a long lens “compressed” the car, which is desirable for most car portraits, as opposed to a wide angle lens which would have made the front look large and the rear very small (like the famous photo of Clint Eastwood's Dirty Harry holding the .44 Magnum revolver close to the camera). A Nikon D3 with a 70-200mm 2.8 lens was used. to create the image.
Location: Costa Mesa, CA.
