I had the opportunity to photograph a rare 1937 Mercedes-Benz 540K Special Roadster. Both images were up for the cover, and I agree with the final choice. The car was on tour at Lyon Air Museum in Santa Ana, CA. I lit with one strobe, and pieced multiple photos together in photoshop to get the final images.
When my daughter was 3 years old we lived in a community that had a dry sauna by the pool. I wanted to do a photo of her with a towel on her head like a “big girl” but knew it would be a challenge. A little Disneyland persuasion did the trick. The entire shoot lasted 18 frames as the towel unraveled. Photographed with my Hasselblad 500CM on Kodak TXP, natural light with one fill card. Yes, we had a great time at Disneyland!
