We just recently finished building up our 1:8 scale Back to the Future DeLorean partwork model. But really, there is still more to do. An entire extension of 29 more issues is waiting for us!
A little ‘Behind the Scenes’ for the header photo
Photography has always been one of my passions and I thought I would try to take a cool picture of my model with the on-board lighting doing its thing. First, I had to shutdown my big soft box lights I use for normal build photos, break out my flashes, and start experimenting:
Next, in order to make the lights on the car ‘pop’ more, I used a longer exposure without the flashes active:
Finally, I combined all of these elements plus some colored gels on the flash heads to get to this. It was just for fun, but I liked it!
