Blue Eyed Soul ::::: 1971 Ford LTD

A recent addition at Paul’s, it’s a bone-stock, totally complete, four-door ’71 Ford LTD.  When I was 10 or 11 these cars were everywhere.  I remember thinking they were really common and boring.  40+ years on however, this thing seems strangely stylish and unique.

3 minute exposure under the full moon.  Shot into the shadows.  Orange light from straight down over the headlights (casting that nice curved shadow on the beak), red from behind the tire (and a little bit on the front of the tire for definition) blue through the window from the back and snooted on the headlights.  There’s also some snooted white light on the Ford logo from straight down.  Had to piece this one together from a couple of images in Photoshop.

      Yeah man, I’m sitting on a big pile of new location work that I need to start trickling out to the world. Got a full workshop scheduled for next weekend too. Thanks for asking, hope you’re having fun!

    Love the understated rectangular plates recessed behind the all seeing orbs!
