Born and raised in Southern California, the natural inclination is to think we all love the beach and everything that comes with it like surfing or boogie boarding and the Woodie cars with surfboards attached to the roof. This girl didn’t always love to go in the water but certainly, the attraction to this style of cars stayed with me.
Just as the owners of these classic cars love working and perfecting the look of this nostalgic era, I too want to take these cars back to the days they were first driven or perhaps where they would not normally drive. Accomplishing this was easy with the technology of Photoshop. I am able to insert these cars into scenes fitting to their style or sometimes into a fantasy environment.
By delicately extracting the car from the background of a crowded car show, I’m able to transport them to another place. I composite several images together making it as realistic as if the car was there when the photo was taken while at times, the surrounding may be surreal. Looking at the cars may stir up memories of a time in your life but you abruptly realize that something is off.
