HOT WHEELS LEADING THE WAY! by broettonavarro HOT WHEELS LEADING THE WAY! by broettonavarro
Porsche 917, made by Hot Wheels.



One of my entries for the 1st Photography with Miniatures Contest, that took place at the Clube Hot Wheels Brasil.

This shot was awfully hard to make. I spent about two hours working on the camera's settings, trying to get the background blurred and the miniature focused. The lighting was another issue. Yellow objects are a pain in the a**** to be properly photographed.
I actually got some cramps during this "photo session".

The overall result didn't make me thaaat happy. After all, I know it can be improved A LOT.
Still, I liked the concept. I'll sure try to "remake" this scene again, with all the changes needed.

Really, really well done. :D Not even sure how you did it.

Not really that happy with it you say. Someone sounds like a perfectionist~

Thank you!
I simply used the panning technique on this one. The lil' Porsche was actually moving =)


Heh, yea sometimes I'm a bit of a perfectionist :roll:
I have tons of shots I didn't upload to my gallery, simply because I'm not really happy with them.

The idea was to make the picture look like a racing scene, the camera should be focused on the Porsche but the other cars should have some 'motion' too.
That said, the 917 is overtaking slower cars on this photo :iconsothereplz:


BTW it would be too complicated for me to make all the three cars move at the same time ;)

Thank you a whole bunch, man! =D


I've managed to capture this car, during this photo session, more focused. But the model was running alone on the track and the overall picture didn't have many colors.
I'll upload more shots from this photo sessions.
