Car Photography & Retouching with Easton Chang

Car photography is about capturing the feelings a car evokes. Whether the emotion is speed, beauty, or just raw power, translating those feelings into an image can present a multitude of challenges. RGG EDU has partnered with world-renowned car photographer, Easton Chang, to explore the secrets behind the methods he employs to create his dynamic images. Easton will teach students how to incorporate simple and advanced techniques to capture design details that will induce drama and speed into their static images.

 This multi-location tutorial starts by covering the fundamentals of action and static shots at El Mirage Dry Lake Bed in California. Next, we go on-set in LA as Easton photographs an editorial cover for Super Street Magazine. In our Midwest segment, the setting goes dark and we do a series of car and motorcycle shots exploring various light painting techniques. In the final shoot, Rig-Pro founder, Andrew Thompson, demonstrates “rig setup” best practices that yield consistently great results.
