The image shown here is a wheel on an automobile called the Bertone Mantide, designed by Jason Castriota. The image was taken in a video game called Forza Motorsport 4. I placed the wheel in a dark spot with minimal lighting. From there, my main settings used to achieve these results were high contrast, high use of brightness, and enough exposure to expose the thin lines. Also, I used a mixture of low color and sepia for the overall look of the image.
Here’s a picture of the automobile:
It may not be the prettiest looking automobile, but the Bertone Mantide can offer some great artistic shots when taken seriously.
