1936 Ford Truck
I photographed this truck at the American Truck Historical Society Antique Truck Show in West Springfield Massachusetts on May 31, 2012. Notice that I have shot the truck from the shaded side. Although intuitively we would probably shot it fron the sunny side, this does a couple of things that I find appealing. First, it created more shape and overall garyscale or contrast in the object. It also allows the sun to cast bright highlights on the edge of the truck that give it some pazazz. By adjusting the Shadows and Highlight in Photoshop, the details imerge really nicely. The background was shot in Salsberg Austria at sunrise. I blured it to minimize detail. The barn was shot in upstate New York.
