Canon 5D Mark 2, 24-105mm 1:4 lens
Photoshop CS6

Background consists of 5 layered textures.

To acchieve car color I did the following
1. Cut layer mask for the car
2. Duplicate the car layer and increase the color saturation to +85. This will make a rougher surface so I applied the surface blur filter to fix that, but as a result sone detail was lost.
3. To regain the detail decrease opacity of the bright color layer to 50%, and combine it with the original car layer.
4. Increase the contrast of the combined layer to achieve the desired look.

The name’s Flyrod. American car culture is my thing. If it rolls, roars, or rumbles I’m into it. Statistics and facts aren’t my gig. My mission is to track down and capture the infamous rides that make up pop culture, and to tell their stories.
