T34 85 (USSR)

A pristine T-34 85, a Russian tank from the later-half of WWII, at the Military Vehicle Technology Foundation, a museum in Portola Valley, California. This tank turned the tide on the Eastern front, it’s bigger 85mm canon, adapted from an AA gun, made it the first Russian tank that could take on the German Panthers and Tigers. The Russians cranked them out so fast that the castings of the turrets were unfinished, rough and crude. I took advantage of that with my skimmed lighting. Lit with a simple $20 flashlight, in total darkness, during a 35-second exposure.
