BMW i8 Roadster.

I photographed this classy car today for a client.

The car…

The BMW i8 Roadster, a futuristic presence in the street with lightweight carbon fibre doors and electric soft-top roof, streamflow design to give unprecedented aerodynamics. Acceleration 0 to 62mph in just 4.6 seconds! And if you’ve got £127,105 to spare, you can have one! Btw, it’s dark grey, not black!

The camera…

Fujifilm X-T2, F=55mm, f/9 @ 1/30th sec on ISO3200. Classic Chrome film simulation gives the image a low colour saturation and a unique chromatic balance. The camera’s settings were tweaked as follows:-

  • Dynamic Range: DR400
  • Highlight: -1
  • Shadow: +2
  • Colour: -2
  • Sharpening: +2
  • Noise Reduction: -4
  • Grain: Weak
  • White Balance: 6300K
