2016 Mercedes S63 AMG - Las Vegas Car Shoot

Here is it! My client got his Mercedes S63 AMG airbag setup installed and wanted to shoot. So early in the week I went out for a location scout and came across this amazing spot to shoot at. Love the modern architectural features from the buildings as a backdrop setting. I applied the new lighting painting technique to the car which hands down makes a huge difference.

Behind the scenes and post processing video of this shoot. Enjoy :)

Nice location and I like the colour toning :) The reflections are a little messy though. Dark cars are hard because they absorb all the light and the only thing that really gives them detail and shape is whatever they reflect so I can see the desire to want to include all of that light over the hood. It is hard to do but try to keep the reflections straight and accentuate the lines on the car, i.e. have a nice straight reflection along the shoulder line etc.

Thanks for the comments Shaun, will definitely keep that in mind on the next shoot.

Nice! We did something similar in Malaysia for VW. Photography was done next to Petronas Twin Towers. It was in Black and white thou. You can check it here: https://www.behance.net/gallery/26107925/VW-Jetta-Limited-Edition-Creati...
