These are a few pics from an article I shot for the Early 911S Registry’s quarterly publication ESSES – vol 19, number 4, Nov 2009 winter issue. It was my last issue as the art director/designer for this hardcore early 911 mag. I convinced my good friend and co-founder of the R Gruppe, Cris Huergas, to write the article which was about NorCal’s awesome adventure to a shop in Hayward, CA that builds 907K replicas, Daytona winner in the ’60s, from factory molds and blueprints. It was a phenomenal day of the winning trio – good friends, German hot rods and authentic Mexican food!
In re: to the photography, the black and white cars were resting on black and white checkered floors. I wanted to emphasize their lack of color by removing the slight yellow color cast from the shop lights and enhance the surrounding colors. The panoramic is a true 180 degree shot accomplished by taking several overlapping shots and stitched together in Photoshop.
