Vivik Skyline ~ GT-R @ Warp Speed

Vivik Skyline ~ GT-R @ Warp Speed

my vision of a sports car with a proud owner like Vivek is like this:

Color and Lighting and the car in motion - going Warp Speed.

Meet Vivek.. A Purdue Grad, A Pharmacist, and a Military Captain.

Vivek will be doing a 1 year tour of duty in Iraq, starting 2 weeks from now.

his father had asked me do a photo shoot of him and his car..
when i first meet Vivek 2 weeks ago, i thought father bought the car for him, but it turns out Vivek earned this by him self..

it totally makes me smile that if you work hard enough, you can meet all your goals.. congrats to him to make it out of a difficult program at Purdue.. and to serve the USA in the armed forces..

it is fitting i did the SKYLINE shot on a SKYLINE top of the parking garage..

The Legendary Nissan Skyline has quite the fan far in Japan, but few know about this car here in north america..

i was lucky enough to drive this amazing piece of engineering at the end of the night

quick specs...

0-60 mph in 3.2 seconds.. and if your a bad drive, then maybe 3.5 seconds.. lol..

some 450 LB torque
some 500 stock HP

a total of 5 lights were used for this shot

1 back lighting was AB1600 with 60 inch softlighter with an orange gel, camera left for the orange glowing look

2 key lighting on Vivek was Elinchrom Quadra with deep octa about 5 feet away held by dad @ 3.0 power boomed downwards

3-4 also had 2 speed lights on the rims held by my japanese Co Workers at Subaru Research Design, (Koga and Kubo - San) they tagged along to see the Car of course.

5 AB1600 with red gel with shoot thru to light up camera right @ full power
