2013 Dodge Dart R/T 05 - Press Kit by notbland 2013 Dodge Dart R/T 05 - Press Kit by notbland
2013 Dodge Dart R/T.
Nashville, TN. December 13-15, 2011.
Official Press Release Photography.

We scouted the location before the shoot, got the permit to shoot there, and my only goal was to get a sunrise photo with the train trestle in the background. What we got instead was rainfall the night before and an ENORMOUS puddle and no wind, PLUS mist hanging in the air under the trestle. Or in other words, WAY more than I had bargained for. Took some beautiful photos that morning as the sun rose, and this was the one that was approved for the press kit.

I know you usually spend a significant amount of time on processing each photo, so for press kits like this do you offer up untouched versions for them to pick from or do you go balls-to-the-wall and adjust all of your favourites which they then pick from?

Lightroom & Photoshop. Lighting the car helped too.

I am constantly awestruck by your photography.
I wish Chrysler decided to give you something cooler than (let's call it what it is) the Dodge Stratus 3.0
It seems like they decided to take bits off the challenger and fit them on an over-sized Neon.
I imagine it's not RWD, as the original Dart was?

notbland Featured By Owner Apr 18, 2012  Professional Photographer
Well hey, they gave me Viper. And Charger SRT8. And 500 Abarth. And the new 300 when it came out. For every couple Grand Caravans there's a monster in their midst that I get to tackle. ;)

You can find out about all the Darts here: [link] :)

Looks like the R/T is the only one really worth getting, imo.
I have to assume it's FWD though, which has its purposes... boring purposes, however.
I've been keeping up with you for a while, though. I'd love to see you get the opportunity to shoot some more outlandish, custom, and classic cars, like the Porsche you posted not so long ago. All in all, the way you put it summarizes it well.

Well. This is just what I shoot commercially. You should see what I've lined up this summer in terms of privately owned cars. ;)

Perfect lighting and a great motif!

I wasn't too sure about the look of the tail of this car at first (thought it looked too chubby), but it's really starting to grow on me now that I've seen it from different angles.

notbland Featured By Owner Apr 18, 2012  Professional Photographer
Yeah, the back end just works, I feel. It must have taken a long time to make it flow well, because there's a lot of shapes to work with, but I think they did a great job. It was just difficult to light, and that's my fault if it looks weird. :P

Haha, nah it's now your fault. I got this opinion when I first saw the car. If anything this series of photos have made me think otherwise!

From this angle ([link]) it looks great, while this angle ([link]) makes it have the same sort of chubbyness as the rear end of a 2nd Gen. Mitsubishi Eclipse! :D

Fantastic reflection. The car stands out just a little to much for me and feels superimposed but printed in a magazine this would be far less obvious I'd imagine.
Very striking image and yet again I want to nick your location finding dude!

notbland Featured By Owner Apr 18, 2012  Professional Photographer
I know what you mean, but yeah printed it looks fine. And this set I used a location scout, actually. So she knew exactly where to look when I told her what I wanted. SUCH a lifesaver, working with a scout.

how do you get a location scout?
Reply

notbland Featured By Owner May 13, 2012  Professional Photographer
Just research online for the area you're shooting. So like I googled Nashville location scouts and was given a list via a very comprehensive website. Then just start calling and asking for rates, work experience, etc. The scout I used knew the whole city like the back of her hand, and got us into some very cool places.

She sounds like a good scout. Well more looks like as I can see she knows her locations!!
