Lightspeed! Automotive Photography with PixelStick

Behold the wonders of PixelStick

Deremer Studios Automotve Photography

About this time last year, I bought the first piece of dedicated equipment (a boom system designed for taking motion photos of cars) for our growing automotive photography business.  It’s proven a worthwhile investment.  So as we prepare for 2016, we decided to buy another tool – this time the PixelStick – an innovative programmable light stick with surprisingly versatile capabilities.  Our primary purpose for purchasing the PixelStick was to help illuminate cars during night shoots, but as we discovered it can do much, much more!  Last night, we did our first trial shoot on two vehicles, and I must say I am quite impressed with our new piece of kit.

Essentially, the PixelStick is a six foot array of 200 RGB LEDs, a handle, and a controller.  Right out of the box, the controller comes with a selection of patters you can use to create a wide range of stunning effects.  But here’s the really cool part – you can make your own patters and even images to project using your PixelStick.  For example, we’re headed down to Daytona this weekend to cover the Rolex 24 for Top Gear, so we created a selection of patters and images that would compliment some of the vehicles we may photograph in the garages – such as the white and blue pattern (above) to accent a vintage Shelby GT350 we’ll be shooting.   All in all, we’re quite excited about the potential of the PixelStick.  Stay tuned for more images!

Racing Through History – The 2015 Classic 24 Hour at Daytona

Deremer Studios Motorsports Photography

This past weekend, we had the wonderful pleasure of shooting the Classic 24 Hour at Daytona for Top Gear and Petrolicious.  We’re a big fan of endurance races here at Deremer Studios, and we love classic cars – so the combination of the two was near irresistible.  The field represented a wide range of storied classics from the Sixties, up to the present, with notable entries including a Ford GT40, A handful of Shelby Gt-350 Mustangs, Six – count them six – BMW CSLs, and a gaggle of Lola prototypes from the last 50 years.

As one would expect with cars worth more than a city block, the racing wasn’t especially heated, yet the drivers weren’t afraid to push their cars to the stops and give us some healthy competition along the way – they even manged to go three wide more than a few times…  From flame-belching braking and those glowy discs everyone so loves, to the roar of engines pushed up against the red line as the competitors ran through the gears, it was certainly a feast for the senses.

And then there was the night racing – wit the cars under minimum lighting – flying around the course at breakneck speeds.  One particular car, the #202 BMW CSL captivated my attention in the Horseshoe (above), with it’s proclivity to send out foot-long flames as it stepped down the gears on the approach.  All in all it was quite the event, and one I would heartily recommend to any enthusiast.

Amelia Concours 2013: And Now, Without Further Adieu…

2013 03 Concours - Sun 20

Today was the grand finale for another wonderful weekend at the 2013 Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance.  The star of this year’s event was the GT40 Class, celebrating the 50th anniversary of Ford’s racing icon.  In total, there were 13 of these storied cars, representing each of the evolutions of this legendary racer.   But that’s just where the fun began…

2013 03 Concours - Sun 06

From one of a kind prototypes and show cars, to automobiles from the fledgling days of automotive innovation over 100 years ago, the Concours has hundreds of cars spanning over a century.  You never know what you’ll see at this show – such as this amazing Space Age inspired car, Fascination (below) – one of only three ever produced. believe it or not, somehow this thing is street legal!
