Red Chrome ::::: 1946 Lincoln

The same ’46 lincoln as the last post.  Because the bumper is only a few feet from that cinderblock wall (the camera was so close to it, I had the use the swivel screen to check the LCD), I lit the wall rather than the car, and let it reflect in the brightwork, which left the black bodywork dark.  I also hit the fenders with cool white, pointed towards the camera, down both sides, and snooted all four lights with warm white.  It took me 107 seconds, in total darkness, to cook up this one, but it also took many test shots to get here.
