Excellent captures of a great rat.

Your images greatly capture the true rat rod atmosphere.

It makes no sounds right now.

Pulling out of the last car show of the year, he was doing a burnout and the blower threw a bearing. The bearing guts got blown down into the engine and scuffed up some of the cylinder walls.

When the blower seized that belt on the front was large enough and had enough traction that it bent the end of the crankshaft.

The owner tells me the engine will be rebuilt bigger, badder, and better than ever by spring.

He had $12k into that engine in the photos. OUCH!

For serious OUCH!

Sorry for the bump but I could not find this thread in the Transportation section. I had to do a search for it.

Very cool shoot.
The background makes this even that much better and fits the car (& ratrod theme) perfectly!!

Lighting is great (not too harsh), shadows are dramatic and nice (were you using umbrellas?)
Model looks great in the all black outfit. The blue outfit with the ratrod doesn't work for me..

overall an awesome shoot mang
congrats!

Lighting was done with 3 norman strobes with soft boxes on them. 2 of the strobes had 4' x 4' boxes and the third one had a 4' x 6' box on it.

Then I added a bit of light by hand wherever it was needed with a SB900 speedlight that had a 2' x 2' soft box on it.

Thanks for the comments.

What about new shiny heads and pulleys says rat rod? Thought that was the look you didnt want. That being said, the photos look amazing.

Back in the '50s when rats started, nobody had money for "100 point" cars. Rats are about putting the money into making it go, & not about $10,000 paint jobs.
