Updates and musings from my recent photographic adventures.

the audi rs6 avant....

How do you sum up this car in one word? Brutal. And yet, toddle along with the dampers, steering and engine set to 'comfort', and you'd hardly know you're in a supercar-beating family wagon. It's only when you go to overtake someone and it feels like you're clinging to the insides of a Falcon 9 rocket that you understand what Audi has created. In my book, this is the ultimate car. Heaps of space for photography and music gear, a superbly comfy and well put-together cabin, economical, cracking stereo, very easy to drive on a daily basis, but packing a weapons-grade 412kW twin-turbo V8 for..........well, fun. 

The rain made getting these photos both challenging and exciting at the same time. This is my first time shooting a car at night, and I experimented with painting the car with a torch and a speed light. Each shot is made up of 4-5 stacked images. Next time, it would be ideal to have a couple of strobes and giant soft boxes to get a nice, even light over the car, plus an assistant. I'm still happy with the results though!
