Something to shoot during self isolation

Dodge Viper [COOLPIX P7000, , Mode = Manual, ISO 100, 1/1250, ƒ/6.3, (35mm = 30)]

This was one of my favorite photo shoots. I loved the Dodge Viper for the lines and styling.

I recommend just having fun at your own house taking photos of some fun objects. I went to the local store and bought this car and then just had fun lighting it.

I even shot this on a super simple Nikon P7000 point and shoot camera.

I suspended one large 32″ x 40″ soft box above the car on a white seamless.

After shooting with simple lighting setup I decided to ad some color.

So I added some blue and then tried red.

This is so fun just to take a model car and just have fun seeing what you can do with just a simple light and white background.

I put this last photo in for scale. I don’t think the local store has sold out of car models. Next time you are buying toilet paper during our coronavirus social isolating crisis, pick up a car and have some fun with your camera and a simple one light. Use a white sheet or since the car is so small, maybe just a pillow case and create some fun images.
