Car: Lamborghini Murciélago LP640 Roadster

About the car: This car has proven to be quite an illusive catch for me. I’ve shot and driven literally every make and model of the modern Lamborghinis (2001-present) with the exception of the Murciélago Roadster. The sound of the massive 6.5L, 650bhp, v12 at wide open throttle sitting just inches behind my head was both intoxicating and exhilarating. I personally hate rag tops but theres just something special about the unadulterated engine noise and driving experience that comes with piloting a topless Lamborghini.

About the shot: I’ve been dying to use this location for quite some time now and thought it would be perfect for this shoot. I compose a lot of my shots where the car isn’t in the center and slightly skewed to the side like it is here. Cars always look great when shot really low so I was basically lying on the ground here. Other than that its a really straight forward shot.

Post processing: A very talented automotive photographer and close friend of mine, Dejan Sokolovski was recently visiting Vegas so we had some time to discuss/share techniques. He kindly gave me 400mb worth of filters (something I’ve never used before) and tried them out for the first time with this shot. I’ve done everything by hand in the past and these filters provide a short cut but with less control and finesse than my previous methods. However, I’m quite pleased with the result.

This shot took me longer than normal (3.5 hrs instead of the normal 1hr of post processing). I desaturated, sharpened, yellow & cyan filters, sharpening filters, selective colors, curves, contrast, shadow highlights, and lots of layers and masking.

Gear: Nikon D300S + Nikon 17-55mm f/2.8

    sound fehlt: ist doch grad des tolle ffcr leute die an viel befahren stradfen wnohen.photovoltaikanlage aufs dach und tankffcllung ist um sonst (klar kostet die anlage auch was aber mit den steigenden benzinpreidfen hat man des schnell wieder drinn) es gibt keinen einzigen nachteil ausgenommen die reichweite aber 90% der fahrten sind warscheinlich eh in der stadt, und die akkus werden sich auch verbessern, klar ist das elektroauto hat zukunft der benziner nicht

    would have agreed a year or so ago but it’s not like there’s going to be anynhitg going faster than you anyways.. so what’s another 200 or so lbs? Plus there’s nothing like driving fast with the top down. The only reason I hate convertibles is that they do not spend enough time redesigning the car to make it look good with the top up and down and idk if you saw that car but it is damn sexy.. haha
