It’s the most wonderful time of the year for a number of reasons, but the one thing that makes it extra special? The annual LA Auto Show.
To keep things somewhat diecast related, I brought a friend with me to the show. It’s the Audi Sport Quattro by Hot Wheels, which i just rescued from a dump bin the other day. Here it is, posed next to one of its fellow Quattro brethren.
There wasn’t anything that piqued my interest as far as debuts go, but I love using this opportunity to practice shooting real cars. This year, I wanted to implement the same angles and techniques that I use to photograph miniature cars, and try them on the life-sized ones.
Does it work? I think so!
Sleigh bells rang - and I was listening - but Santa was nowhere to be found. Largely because he doesn’t exist in the first place.
The Dutch angle makes an appearance.
Can’t have a car show without a Godzilla sighting.
My favorite little detail: exhaust tips wrapped in carbon fiber.
One thing I wish I had done was to take more interior photos. This is going to be my #1 priority for next year’s show.
Perhaps the biggest surprise for me was how good the Quadri-Stelvio looks in plain-jane silver.
