20111019 Cars - 1

It is dangerous to shoot cars like this. If there were someone inside the car in front of me who held a camera as well as a LED light panel, I might get beaten up.

Anyway, I like the way these cars appear in the photos. They look as if an accident had occurred and the officers took some photos of the crashed cars as proof or something. Photo 1, in particular, conveys this kind of feeling because the car was parked in such a weird manner. If you’d like to try shooting photos like these, you should not point the LED directly at the front of the subjects. That would make the reflection too strong and overexpose the details. Just light up part of the subjects, which would make the pictures more mysterious. For Photo 4, I hit the blue car too hard with the LED so it was not mysterious at all. But I like it though, since it was really a cute car.
