Travel, in space

Ford kindly loaned me this Galaxy to take part in a big shoot last week, not just as a photographic subject- at which it excelled thanks to its modern looks and panoramic roof (great for driving shots)- but also to carry around the editorial team from the photo magazine that was doing the behind-the-scenes feature.

 

We moved from location to location shooting different images and styles of long exposure, dodging rain showers, eating junk food and smiling repeatedly for the camera. It was a long night but sadly we never got to see the stars.

 

And that's kinda how I found myself out the following night beneath an impressively starry sky, piecing together this concept shot that had sold the idea to Ford in the first place.

 

Multiple lighting frames at ISO200 f/9 merged with stacked star trails at ISO400 f/2.8.

 

Hope you like it.
