Vintage Car Photography – 1966 P1800 Volvo
On July 16, commercial photographer John Majorossy was on scene at Howe Motor Works in Burlington, Ontario taking photographs for a clients 1966 P1800 Volvo car restoration project. Looking at the before pictures we were quite amazed at the work that went into the restoration process. The pictures of the car shown here are after 3 years of restoration work with a fresh coating of paint. It was not optimal to photograph the car in the shop because of the mirror-like paint job, but John used many lighting techniques and his expertise to exaggerate the cars curves and beautiful colour without any unwanted reflections shown in the paint. When the car is completed it will be brought to BP imaging’s car studio which has a 10′ x 24′ overhead soft light box and the latest in super high resolution cameras, being one of the few studios in Southern Ontario that can properly photograph a vehicle.
