The beauty of the Chevrolet Corvette has been captured by many photographers for the past 60 years, but a slick video of a red 1969 Stingray on the creative website called Vimeo lifts the game to a brand new level.
Vimeo describes itself as a “respectful community of creative people who are passionate about sharing the videos they make.” It would be hard to argue with that evaluation after watching this video.
“I made this video out of my fascination to the night lights and how they work on the body of a beautiful car,” the artist says in the caption.
Beginning with a variety of close-up still shots of the 427-powered car, he then moves into action video on interstates and in tunnels, with the reflected light giving new and unique looks of the Corvette.
The cameraman obviously put a lot of time and effort into making the video, using his Canon 550D, equipped with EF-S 18-55mm and 55-250 lenses, to capture the Corvette and its surroundings from many different angles and different locations on the car. The editing is especially effective as he switches from angle to angle, showing dashes of light reflecting off the moving vehicle that seem to be moving and sliding off of it.
