A very cold, crisp and beautiful Saturday afternoon in this very nice ski arena in Oslo. Both cross country and biathlon competitions are held in the arena. The ski jump in the back are exclusively for daredevils.

Here are some shots I took at that 2015 Frankfurt “IAA” Car show. It was super busy, so i knew i couldn’t get a ‘natural’ shot that i would be happy with through all the crowds.
Instead I intentionally underexposed or overexposed the cars depending on the background and tried to shot so that i knew I could photoshop-out any by-standers
Shot them all with my razor-sharp 35mm 2.8. All the lighting was just the spot lights in the convention centre.
Obviously, quite a lot. First i dropped the shadows so that underexposed crowds faded to black. I then painted the remaining crowd over with black (or white) being super careful to keep as much of the cars’ shadow as possible (keeps it realistic).
Tonality wise - the cars themselves have been completely de-saturated as some of the convention centre lighting had funny colours, but I ‘color-popped’ some of the important bits like the brake lights, or racing stripes!
After that I was just a case of pushing the contrast to make the cars seem extra shiny!
I am very excited to announce my collaboration with The Colour Collection! I’ve created 5 lightroom presets and 5 photoshop actions that are now available in their Artist Collection. I would love it if you guys could check it out, and check out The Colour Collection for other amazing editing tools and presets!
