After It All by notbland After It All by notbland
2004 Lamborghini Gallardo.
Baton Rouge, Louisiana. September 13, 2009.

When I heard that I was finally shooting an orange Lamborghini, the first image that popped in my head was a dark empty warehouse with the ground soaked in water, car lit up on both sides, fully waxed and polished, gleaming in the darkness with its reflection seen distorted on the ground.

Then the enormous, abandoned warehouses I had found that would have been perfect for the shoot, were deemed inaccessible by Exxon-Mobil's processing plant, who owned the rusted out buildings- it only took literally nine phone calls to six security personnel, including the plant security sergeant and three phone calls to their public relations department to find out that no- I could not use their property.

So on the day before the shoot, I resorted to my second best location- the one you see here. But I couldn't replicate the image in my head. The accident then occurred, and I had to end the shoot prematurely, and reschedule for a week later. And then I had the car for 2.5 more hours, to shoot the interiors and finish the motion work. But it wasn't until I was taking down all my equipment that I realized- conditions were as near perfect as they were going to get. I could finally shoot the image I had dreamed of.

So I did.

Hahaha. It's certainly got the look. You should check out my 2010 Camaro series; I paid major tribute to Transformers in the titles on that one. ;)
