For a moment there, when first reading the title....I thought you were talking about a Ford.

Clever lighting and processing to make the transparent parts of the instrument panel opaque. If I look at the top of the photo, it looks like a shattered glass windshield, but the steering column has been removed, so my question is this part of a wreck or is the dash sitting by itself somewhere? Something from a mid-sixties plain Jane Ford? By the way, this is another fine example of an image that really should be viewed at a larger resolution (by following the Flickr link) to appreciate the detail and texture you have captured.

Thanks for the kind words. I agree, there are some neat details at larger resolution. This is part of a wreck left in the woods behind my house. It's just the cab, the engine bay and back of it is gone. I'll have to check again, but there's a date in the door, I think it's mid 70s.

I painted it with a flashlight, some white key light and then a touch of red light, using a piece of ruby lith gel over a light painting brush hood. The ruby lith cuts the light a lot, but it provides a wonderful diffuse light.

This is the cab, taken the same night. I have a really hard time creating good "light fog", have to go back to the drawing board.
