Patrick's Z28 is a numbers matching car with a 4-speed, CT-1 trans, & 3.73 rear end. He's had it for 10 years.
Patrick wanted a print, so I did a little work after the shoot. ;) I deliver the final print tonight.

Awesome shots Frank. I really like how you've captured the car. I love how you did the print image......that totally rocks, he can be nothing be pleased with that. I remember when I was in High School, you could see these types of muscle cars very often. Not anymore :( . It's great that you have preserved those memories for us all.

I just took the picture. These guys do all of the hard work! :D
Patrick did like the print. With a car that looks that good, it's not too hard to get a good shot.
One thing I like about Costco is that I can make a 12X18" print as a proof & touch up in PS to get everything just right. When I walk in there now, they know just which order to pull out! ;)
Thanks for the comments!

Beautiful job with with that, Frank.
If you get a 12 x 18 for a proof, does that mean the final product is bigger?
Do you upsize the file or just give them whatever pixels you have?

Thanks, Curtis. The final print is also 12X18" @ 300ppi. The file size before cropping/flattening is bigger as I shoot the car large (filling the frame), then increase the canvas to get room for the gradient background & room around the car before the final crop.
The flattened Tiff is 56MB & the printable Jpeg is 6.7MB.
One of my other prints was 160ppi, & that print also looked OK, so I've done it both ways.

Curtis, I thought you'd like to see some of the options we considered for the final layout. Patrick suggested ghosting the Z28 emblem.

Frank, the work you did on the first one is probably the best yet. The red highlight, fade on the logo, and position of the car are perfect. Did you shoot logo yourself? They can be real tricky. Of the alternates, the top middle interesting, too.

the first shot , the colours are wonderful together
the car looks great in the lighter shade matching the big Z colour
it's a terrific design

the black red and yellow and 'silver' border with the Z all look great together , along with the angle of the car

2nd last shot looks like it's grinning

:)

they all are lovely shots

frank, you're a master at using natural light, you're a master at finding great cars to photograph, you're a master at exposure and you're a master at photoshop

but i'm sick of seeing the same angles :(

i love all your threads, but i'd love to see you 'break out of your comfort zone' and give us some low down wide angles, or off center, or 'tilted horizon' shots!

come onnnn, a favour? :P

love the car, wish it was mine :(

Thanks, Frank.

Becky is the graphic artist in my house, I just take the pictues.;)
I'll make sure she sees this. She's working on a montage of my Dad's '50 Chevy pickup for Christmas.
