Painting with light allows the avant-garde and classic photography to work harmoniously in synergy, the end result is such an epiphany of beauty that one can simply remain silent and immerse themselves in extreme pleasure.
Ubiquitous photographic margins between ‘nice’ and extremely pleasurable are so thin, as simple onlookers we often forget the skill required to produce something of such magnitude it envelopes the observer. Taste is of course individual, but the inquisitive among those who just ‘look’ will often notice detail that seems transparent or even non-existent to others less scrutinate.
Bill Pack, owner of V12 Enterprises is one of those scrutinate people who pays such attention to detail the end product falls just short of miraculous.
Painting With Light
A passion for classic photography and classic automotive design, Bill was trained as a commercial photographer at Brooks Institute in Santa Barbara, California. His career has the integrity and foundations of those building innovative, creative and breathtaking architecture. Striving for perfection, his love for classic photography paved a visionary pathway towards an illumination technique: “Painting with Light.”
This illumination technique is applied to a subject by moving a light source over its surface while taking a long-exposure image. It’s more painting than photography – a process of layering and sculpting with light that enhances a car’s shape and lines, makes details pop against the blackest of shadows, and reveals the design intent and emotion behind each classic car’s form.
A unique powerful blend of light and strong classical lines has given Bill distinguished prominence among collectors and car enthusiasts around the globe. Contemporary use of light, with definitive and strong lines delivered from exquisite classic car symmetry are synonymous with Packs attitude towards photographic perfection.
