Custom Beauty Part 2

ISO400 50mm f/5.6 1/250sec

This is a shoot I have been trying to coordinate for some time now. A good friend of mine is a fantastic musician and among his guitar collection he has this gorgeous one of a kind custom Les Paul. The staining on this guitar is so rich and full of life, I’ve never seen another guitar compare to the depth of color.

Not much I can say except enjoy the new pieces 🙂

    Absolutely stunning shots Nick! What a gorgeous guitar. 🙂

  14. Great shots Nick–love the black background.

  15. Beautiful, all, especially the first one. You gave the instrument the respect a Les Paul deserves. Well done.

    • There she is! Shez I was about to send out a search unit, havent seen you around in a bit 😉 Thanks, I had tons of fun shooting these!

      • Nick I was feeling the same with you, but today the link to your blog was there. I think sometimes it is a communication thing between FB and WP. And I’m seldom on FB, but have not missed a daily photo…yet. Sometimes it is hard to keep up. So my attempt to get red, blue and yellow vehicles in one photo has been a challenge. Even if I can see them all at one time, does not mean my camera has that big a wide angle or that they ever are close enough together to have a relationship in a single photo. How was you Nicko de Mayo celebration??

        • I know what you mean Shez! I have an image in my head of what I would like the three cars to look like, and am just waiting for that perfect moment to capture the scene. And the Nicko de Mayo (lol) celebration was nice, went out an caught a Corona with friends and sang a bit of karaoke. Fun responsible night haha.

  16. Enough to make anyone want to take that guitar and make music, great images Nick
