    Hey guys,

    Today I met up with "spyderman" and did a photo shoot with his beautiful 360 Stradale. He is one of the nicest guys you will ever meet, and is very willing to share his passion for cars with others. His love for cars started when he was my age, and it was really insperational to see how someone went from aweing over cars in magazines to actually owning one. The ride was nothing short of spectacular, going from 250km/h to 0 is qute the thrilling experience (I think my mom almost died when she saw us take off in front of her!). The sound of the CS is phenominal, no wonder they didn't put a radio in it! I just want to thank spyderman for the amazing day, and for taking time out of his busy schedule to meet up with me, it is much appriciated!

    Enjoy the pics,

    I'm also pretty sure it's Rosso Scuderia. I think most (if not all) red CS's are Rosso Scuderia.

    Nice Pics! I enjoy looking at your photos. I am also about your age and can understand where your coming from for your passion for cars. I enjoy them as much as you do, your photos brought back the memory of me also riding in a Stradale. My mother also freaked out when she saw us hitting 100mph just as we exit the dealership. Then almost had a heart attack when i told her about us hitting 182mph before we were about to exit the highway. Thanks for the pics, look forward to seeing more of your pictures. Ciao

    Lucas, a real pleasure to see these pics. Exceedingly well captured.

    Which camera, what settings, if you don't mind a (very amateur) photographer asking.

    some nice pics there. a great subject for sure!
    while i don't do still photography, i do shoot video and many of the same principals come into play.

    first - i'd suggest shooting on aperature priority and then shooting the subject WIDE (or nearly-wide) open. this will shorten your depth of field and make your subject 'pop'.

    also - if you're using a zoom, back off of the subject and zoom in - this will also effectively reduce the depth of field.

    try to shoot the subject in the light, with a dark background - in this case - the shaded, dark green, tree-filled areas. again - towards the same result - it makes thing POP.

    when shooting outside, try a polarizing filter. it will take the glare off of things (windshield, headlight covers) and darken the blue skies - all in one shot. worth the price. really helps contrast.

    if you can, shoot during the 'golden hours' of early morning and late afternoon. the light is so much more flattering coming from an angle vs. straight down. you can, however, make straight-down light useful.

    you've got a great start there - i hope you find these tips helpful!!!

    Wow! Nice photos. The industrial backdrop looks killer!

    I had this idea photoshoot for a poster/calendar only with Stradales. Different color Stradale for each month :)
