Love Cars? Some of the Best Photos of Iconic Cars ever.
I enjoy photos of cars – especially iconic cars in stunning locations. The skill of the photographer is paramount. Was it planned? Complete luck? Or was it simply the ability to make post editing changes that tweak the final image? As the writer of the blog says; “Love it or loathe it, the use of Photoshop or similar software in modern day pictures is now an integral part of our lives”.
Personally, I’m not averse to a bit of technology ‘tweaking’ to provide that extra bit of drama and flair. That said I also like the ‘old school’ approach with filters, lights and other subtle props.
Whatever your own opinion, art is always going to be subjective and down to personal taste. Hope you enjoy this link. I did.
‘Why Not Associates’ is behind the design of six new stamps for the UK Royal Mail which feature a series of British classic cars from the 1960s and 70s…
The cars for the British Auto Legends ‘Thoroughbreds’ set were sourced from various collectors from all over the UK, and photographed last year by James Mann, a specialist in car photography, in a studio in Clapham in London.
Despite the dangers of negotiating the studio space, Mann came up with six great portraits of the following cars (click on the photo to take you to the link relating to the story behind the stamps):
1961 Jaguar E-Type;
1962 MG MGB;
1963 Aston Martin DB5;
1965 Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow;
1968 Morgan Plus 8;
1976 Lotus Esprit.
I hope you like them as much as I did (although disappointed that a Lotus Seven was not included….. 😉 )
