Here’s Chris from last week’s workshop, lifting a truck. Pretty strong for a skinny guy. 2 hand-held strobes. 94 seconds, to let the sky burn in a little.
The “Cobb” Imperial movie prop again. The car is cut off at the dashboard/firewall for filming access, allowing me to get in here at an unusual angle. This gem has taken a beating sitting outside in the desert for almost 20 years. Protomachine flashlight set to red and lime. I kept the exposure short to [...]
Paul moved the “Cobb” movie prop ’59 Imperial out from it’s nearly inaccessible perch on the west fence. Now you can comfortably shoot it from any angle, so I set up and relaxed with her for 40 minutes while the stars inexorably marched across the sky. Purple and red Protomachine flashlight too. I love the casters [...]

Desaturated purple and full-bore red Protomachine flashlight from a variety of angles. Full moon outside, 115 second exposure.

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. [...]
Had to work fast to catch just the tip of the white whale breeching from its garage. A few minutes later, with more moonlight revealing the scene, the character of this set up changed dramatically. This giant tank of a car is part of a private collection in California’s Central Valley. Protomachine flashlight set to [...]
