Back with another still life photo. This is a toy car I was playing around with. Its a 1969 Dodge Charger R/T . This is my dream car. I was working with metallic surfaces trying to get some nice lighting. As well as the metallic of the car I added the reflection of the car using a sheet of glass. This is all in camera I do as little as possible in Lightroom and try and avoid Photoshop.

I would like to work with lighting and capturing the real deal. So if you have a 1968-1970 Dodge Charger there is a very good chance you could get some nice photos. The new Charger is nice and getting there thinking about getting one myself. I just wish the front end was stretched out more to give more of a muscle car feel. Also use the double scoop on the doors and push in the rear window some. Sincerely yours,

Kenneth Pasternak

Dear Reader,

Hey I wanted to show you this photo of mine called Apple. Early one morning as I was getting ready for a class back when I was going to MCC. I was eating an apple and started staring at the other apples sitting on the counter as I gazed out the back door.  It was a cold winter day snow fell though out the night. Nice fresh snow on the ground. So I went though the apples to find a nice unbruised apple to use. Now I had to look for a spot for this apple to photograph against the snow. All this with out disturbing the snow. I was all over the yard trying out different spots doing my best to keep distractions out of the background of the image.

So here is what I came up with. There is another image from this same shoot that I like as well. It is a view from above. Well maybe I will show that one some other time. Sometimes my mind just wonders around and if I can I will try my best to capture the image.

Feel free to write back a comment on how or what you think about the image. It is always great to hear back from you. Sometimes a image can stir up a persons memories or imagination. I might have one thing in mind as I shoot, but it is all the different thoughts that a image can stir up that gives a photo power.

Sincerely yours,

Kenneth Pasternak
