2012 Infiniti IPL Coupe
Photography can be a tool for many different purposes. Commercial photography - especially product photography; can be utilized for technical and instructional diagrams or more commonly for marketing and advertising.
Car photography presents many complex challenges. Controlling light, reflections and shadows on a large object with multiple reflective surfaces such as a car, can require a lot of patience and often a fair amount of work in post production.
I shot photos of my car in the Mojave Desert as part of a promotional/marketing shoot for the Infiniti Dealership I purchased it from.
On that note... I went by my Infiniti dealer to check out a new Q50s - and I learned that Infiniti has discontinued the IPL Coupe. I'm so bummed. I've owned a dozen performance sports cars and this IPL has been my favorite.
348hp stock, mine is pushing 360hp - due to some mods... the size, weight, handling, and 7 speed transmission... it's the right mix of agility, speed, luxury, and it surprisingly gets around 25 miles per gallon - with my normal driving/commute. Highway/freeway can boost me to nearly 30mpg.
I'm sad that Infiniti/Nissan did away with what was the 2nd most powerful sports car behind the GTR.
I made the decision that I am going to keep my IPL. which means that instead of trading my IPL in on another or for the Q50S... I can't get a new IPL... so I'll have to add the Q50S.
