Default How did I do this?

Ok, I spent the last few hours (!!! Really) to get some photos of the team AZARASHI bodyshell for the ZX5 / KMC - and other 4WD cars. For a review of the shell on the ZX5.

Anyway - You don't win anything - but kudos to the person who is closest with the explanation of how I did this image.

I try,
The bodyshell is on the keyboard of a laptop,
The red light come from an optical mouse,
The orange light is the ambiant light,
and the dog is a full screen MS-paint sketch.

right,

its night time,
you're on the top of a volcano (red glow)
Theres a fire to your left (orange glow)
and theres a giant glowing wild cat about to attack you,
you started to run away from the cat and dropped the bodyshell (that you just happened to have with you) then as you turned you dropped the camera which (with the force of the impact on the floor) went off and took this lovely looking photo.
jeez, I hope you're ok jimmy, did you manage to outrun the cat?!

No on en needs to say owt now 'cos thats OBVIOUSLY the right answer.

Jimmy.

I reckon the post shoud be titled "Why did I do this !"

Anyway...

Look forward to the review, I've being considering getting one of these shells, undertray and wing combos.

My guess would be :

Cartoon face is on a monitor screen.
Red glow from a light off to the right of the shell, hence hot spot. Light could possibly have a red bulb, or some kind of red filter on it.

Possibly some kind of reflective surface under the shell ??

Do I win the shell now and save myself the £40 is costs !

Is it inside the boot of your car with the light cover taken off so you get the glow of the lights?

No ambient light at all
Long exposure
Screen in background showing image
Red line is sensor reflection flare from whatever LED is nearby (something on standby?)

The shell is on your laptop keyboard the logo is on the screen beghind it. The red light is off your optical mouse the orange light is long exsposure. And the orange is the red light that is refracted through the body changeing it slightly orange. And the room is in darkness.

Cameras don't have lights on them when taking photos, or it would ruin the shot by putting light all over everything! hehe..

The shot above is a 15 second photo by the way

There's probably no way anyone'd "get" how it's done but no its not a monitor. Even displaying black, a monitor over 15 seconds would probably give out way too much light - but it's worth a try and a good idea.. I might try that next time.

The coloured light is a mobile phone light.

The logo in the back is plotter cut black vinyl on a large sheet of 5mm polycarbonate. a double layer of white material is behind it to diffuse the light and give and even coverage. I built a box behind this screen to house my flash. about 10 flashes from my 580EX flash are used to make the logo glow a bit - then I picked up the phone, moved it around toward the rear of the shell and changed the colour (on the phone) to yellow as I moved over toward the rear.

I could have hand painted this image in photoshop in half the time this photo took to create - but it was worth the effort.
