Royal County Car Club Meet.

On Wednesday, I popped along to the Royal County Car Club meet, which is held at the Shire Horse Pub in Maidenhead on the second Wednesday of each month. I got introduced to them through Lee, who's VW Golf I photographed a couple of weeks ago  (photo in the gallery). The plan was to meet up with the members and try and get some shots, however I was lucky enough to be able to light paint the cars. 

As its still early in the meet season, there were only a few cars there, but still enough to get some shots. 

I have to say, I was a bit nervous as I am when meeting new people, but all the club members were really friendly and up for talking about the mods to their cars. There was talk of going back for the next one, which I would love to do.

Thanks again to all the members of the club, for making me feel so welcome and let me snap their  awesome cars. 

Cheers for reading,

Volvo V40 Project Car.

I have the pleasure in my day job to work for Volvo UK, one of the perks of the job, is I get access to some pretty nice cars. 

Recently our department have been building a track car, this is based on a Volvo V40 D4. The car has undergone some pretty extensive modifications to get it to how it is now. The car has undergone a full respray in Rebel Blue, along with a bespoke roll cage. It has also been fitted with a set of OMP racing seats and Sabelt 5 point racing harnesses. Chassis wise, it has been fitted with Polestar shock absorbers and springs. Also the exhaust has been changed for the Polestar stainless system with the rear diffuser to match. The air filter has also been upgraded to the matching Polestar one. The wheels have been changed for the Polestar 19" lightweight versions. ECU wise, this has been upgraded with the Polestar performance upgrade, this increases the power from, 190bhp/295Nm to 200bhp/325Nm. Which is makes quite a difference. Last night, I got to take some pictures of this lovely car, I used my Nikon D610 with a 24-70 2.8 lens. I used a Godox 120cm Octabox, with an Apture LED light panel to provide the light source and light paint the car. The images have been finished off using Adobe's Lightroom and Photoshop. Anyway onto the photo's. 

Thanks for looking, please feel free to comment, as I would love to get feedback on the shots. 

Thanks

Volvo XC90.

Recently been getting more and more into my car photography. Last weekend I had the chance to borrow an XC90 D5 from work for a trip away. The colour is called bursting blue, and it really does just that. Had to photograph it whilst I had the chance. 

 These are a couple of shots that I'm very happy with, especially the top one, love the way the colour just jumps out of the screen. Taken on my Nikon D610 with my trusty 24-85 lens. Used Adobe Lightroom to edit the shots, the top one using a preset from the photogrpaher Anthony Morganti, then tweaked to my own liking.   Please feel free to comment, as I would love to get some feedback on the images.   Thanks for looking Jasper, JKS Photo
