Last week I was doing a workshop in Ashby-de-la-Zouch, and my chum Gareth turned up in a multifuel-capable Exige demonstrator he’d blagged off Lotus. By the time we’d driven it around some back lanes (to make sure it worked, you understand) we didn’t have time to wash it, wait for decent light, or do any of the things you’re supposed to do when taking arty pictures of exotic cars.
Still, I’m pretty pleased with the resulting shots. The combination of the Sigma 10-20mm ƒ/4-5.6 ultra-wide zoom and a 50mm ƒ/1.4 prime gives lots of options forcing for detail via perspective and depth of field. I wish I’d had longer to play, though if I had I’d probably have spent it driving instead.
