Ford Pickup Truck

1938 Ford
They were sitting in the truck, talking to a friend who was standing on the side walk. They were just about to drive off when I spotted the old Ford parked near Poseidon's Square in Handen. So through the open window on the passengers side I asked if they could wait for a few minutes so that I could shoot a Brenizer method photo. The owner restores old cars. He bought this 1938 Ford a little over 20 years ago. It was a wreck back then. These days it is a beauty.

Oh, my. What a gorgeous truck. I am very happy that you got to take an equally gorgeous photo of it and that you decided to share it with us. Is a Brenizer method photo difficult to achieve? I need to Google that and see what is involved because if there is any possibility that I could learn to do it, I want to learn to do it!

Great Brenizer,the truck is definitely not a wreck today!

It's a tricky technique Lynette. You use a Prime lens and shoot many close-up photos of a person or an object at a very shallow depth-of-field, in my case f/1.8. You then use PS or any other software to stitch together the photos like you would in a panorama. I am a member of the Brenizer group at flickr where you can find all the information you need.

I like the color - very different and quite elegant. Makes me pine for my 1st car, a 1937 Chevy!

Would look mighty fine in my driveway too.

Gorgeous!

Denna bild är en riktig fullträff. Tekniken du använder är perfekt i detta fall och det hjälper naturligtvis till att motivet är en av de läckrare bilar jag sett på väldigt länge!

Fabulous! The Pin Up girl is quite a detail.
The Fields of Yellow is an amazing post and I also like the last series of portraits. Great job.
