.‘40 Ford Grille

40 Ford Grille


Verticals in photography have long been the standard for magazine covers. With the rise of the Web, I see less of them than before, unfortunately with the advent of smart phones, the videos posted have gone vertical (but that’s another story)! I find there are still many images that lend themselves to the vertical format.

I guess that you could call this a waterfall style grille, with the massive chrome piece coming down the apex of the hood to the uprights for the grille itself. I shot from above to include the hood louvers. I went with a slightly offset angle because I didn’t want the symmetrically balanced frame to seem too static. On a side note, the chrome lever under the word Ford is the hood latch.

In the best light…
