Video: This is How You Shoot a $3.6 million Bugatti
Being a car photographer can be one of the hardest and most rewarding jobs on the planet. Delicacy is important with this job, especially when you’re dealing with a supercar as exclusive and as expensive as the Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse Rembrandt Bugatti.
Car photographer Pepper Yandell recently had the privilege of shooting the exclusive Veyron and as the video shows, you really need to know what you’re doing to capture all the good angles of this supercar.
But Yandell clearly knows what he’s doing, pulling out all the photography tricks in his bag to showcase the Veyron in various angles. The play in lighting in these photos are pretty incredible, too. Yandell captures them beautifully, casting different shadows and highlighting different parts of the Veyron.
This video is a nice lesson on how to be a good car photographer. You can’t just rely on the car itself to create the photos, even if said car is one of the most unique supercars in the world. You need to be creative and find ways to emphasize all the positive qualities of the subject.
It’s easier said than done, but if you know what you’re doing, you can create photographic masterpieces the same way Pepper Yandell does on a consistent basis.
