When I first heard of the CamRanger in October of 2012 in New York City at PhotoPlus Expo I was immediately intrigued.

I don’t actually own a laptop, so tethering to an iPad tablet has been a long awaited process with trial and error. My first experience was with the Eye-Fi Wireless SD Card; a memory card you place in your camera, the card transmits a wireless signal and supposedly you connect to that signal source, boom, you’re tethered. Except it didn’t really work.

KFC Restaurants recently opened a new concept store in Louisville, Kentucky called KFC eleven. (The “eleven” being a tribute to the 11 herbs and spices in KFC’s original recipe chicken). The new store has a distinctly modern look, and is far from the red and white color palette made popular by Colonel Sanders.

The new concept required a new direction for the photography as well. KFC eleven’s creative agency, (Creative Alliance) asked us to help them create the visual feel for this new brand.

I haven’t yet seen anyone else do this quite the same way and there doesn’t seem to be a name for it, so I named the process “zone lighting”, a form of exposure blending by dividing the scene in different zones. But let’s start with a little bit of background about the project and its concept.

Long Exposure Photography of a Moving Car at Night Using a Carbon Boom

I have a passion for automotive photography at night, but for the most part I’m forced to shoot static images. Long exposures require a stable support for your camera and that’s only achievable when everything’s locked down — including the car. Sure, light painting, traffic trails and even the occasional star trail all help to introduce dynamism to static automotive images but sometimes there’s no substitute for shooting the car whilst its moving.
