Thinking outside the square at times can hep you pull of shots that you would never have thought of taking in the first place. Such was this moment in time.
I love old cars and this one I have given the name,” The Girlfriend”to , that’s a story in itself, maybe for another time.I went out one night to shoot the stars above the Old Holden, and a FJ Holden at that. For my overseas friends, the FJ Holden was Australia’s first ever built car in the late 40’s and early 50’s.
Where I lived at the time when this photo was taken, meant that I was approx 25 minutes from the car. I went outside, looked to the heavens and saw clear skies which is what I was needing.
So it was in the car and off we go.As I was getting closer to where the old Holden was, I could see that the stars had been swallowed up the stars.Upon arriving where the car was ,there was a massive cloud cover the old car. No stars that night and I wondered how could I make the shot more interesting given that I will not be getting the stars on this night.
I had come a good distance for the shot and although the shot would allude me once again, I was determined that I was not going to be going home without a stunning shot of this old car. I sat in the field, dark and cold and reflecting on what I could do to make this work for me.Thinking out side the square was what was needed on this night and that is what I did to achieve this shot.
So how was this shot taken? Do you have any idea? I will reveal this very soon.Do you have any ideas how this shot was captured? Pete:)
