Honorable Mention / RED / Red / Advertising
My name is RED
This was an experimental project for advertising my friend's car. We
wanted an alternative shoot. I wanted to add the suspense and The
concept to use to utilize light in a way not to have equally bright objects
at times. I also alternated between body parts, and car parts, rather than
the traditional full car shoot.
