Woodcliff Lake, NJ – July 12, 2012 2:00pm EDT… BMW takes the 2012 Concept Car of the Year Award with its i8 Concept Spyder. This award marks BMW’s fourth competition as a category finalist and the brand’s second visit to the awards podium at the eleventh annual North American Concept Vehicle of the Year Awards announced today. The Concept Car category recognizes those vehicles where passenger carrying is the primary intent.
That’s right, cars are made to be driven and thanks to these members in Denver, that is exactly what we have to show you today. Check out this thread with some awesome photography and awesome cars (you do not have to own a BMW to share in our passion) as they make their way through a day of photographs and driving through the state.
Bryan O’Neil Hughes is a photographer, a car buff, and the senior product manager for Photoshop. In Photo Workshop: Car Photography Tips, these passions combine at a workshop hosted by lynda.com and Adobe Systems.
In the first portion of the course, Bryan photographs a carefully lit Mercedes SLS AMG and shares tips for photographing cars. He shows how to evaluate the lines of the vehicle and compose shots for the greatest dramatic effect. Along the way, he employs a variety of lenses and shooting techniques, from macro to high dynamic range.
Next, Bryan guides the workshop’s attendees through his Lightroom and Photoshop workflow. He shares insider tips on how to take advantage of the features in Photoshop CS6, such as the revamped Crop tool, the Iris Blur and Tilt-Shift filters, the Content-Aware Move tool, and video editing tools.
