Auto backshots
« on: October 27, 2012, 10:34:59 AM »

Few years ago I stumbled on this great street photographer Carlos Ramos (Miami Fever on flickr) and I was really captivated by his work, it was back in 08, much less influx of photos back then :D

One of his shots really stroke a chord in me and I've been trying to make a decent spin of it this summer, and as always - handheld + ambient light only.


Easily one of my favorite shots of the year.






This was shot in a hotel garage, there was a tour passing through my town and lot of hot metal parked at the hotel...I snuck in the garage and took quick shots, I didn't have the nerves to waste time fine tuning my angle...and being without tripod, this is the best I got out of this one...kinda looks like a studio shot to me.

If it's not against the forum rules, this is where the other shots are (my photo blog)  http://bit.ly/autobackshots

Thanks for feedbacks guys

Tom,

That's a cool concept and well executed in your case.

Funny that I had a similar idea recently, though my focus was on something else :):

Thanks for the laugh Slobodan, well spotted.

I dare say there is another somewhere with the plate "TOSSER" if only I could find it.

neat idea. I like the first the most as it has an uncluttered background and you have the levels and lines straight
