Almost exactly two years ago, photographer Thomas Rauhut was driving the Mercedes-Benz E-Class (E 220d All-Terrain) in the Munich Alpine foothills, on the Reschenpass and on Lake Garda. We have decided today for an all-terrain wallpaper, because after all, we like to walk away from the fixed paths.
Mercedes-Benz E-Class All-Terrain
The all-terrain is recommended for spontaneous detours in the area, on dirt roads, snow and sand. Design highlights include the SUV-style radiator grille, sturdy attachments and large alloy wheels. By selecting the All-Terrain driving program via the driving program switch, the suspension in conjunction with the standard AIR BODY CONTROL is raised by +20 mm at a speed of up to 35 km / h. Thanks to air suspension, three level positions from 0 to +35 mm are possible. Regardless of the driving program, the highest level can also be reached manually with the help of the level button on the center console. Compared to the normal Mercedes-Benz E-Class Estate, the E-Class All-Terrain is 29 millimeters higher. 14 mm are due to the tires with a higher height / width ratio and 15 mm to the higher normal driving level of the air suspension. The ground clearance of the Mercedes-Benz E-Class All-Terrain is thus between 121 to 156 mm.
Thomas Rauhut is a trained professional photographer with a focus on portrait / fashion and automotive photography. He is stationed in Cologne and Koblenz, but also active across the borders of the two villages.
Behind the Scenes: How does a professional photographer photograph cars?
Thomas photographs with a Nikon D810 and, as a Tamrom brand ambassador, is of course firmly rooted in lens choice. The Tamron SP 24-70mm f / 2.8 is the allrounder lens for Thomas. He uses e.g. the Tamron SP 15-30mm f / 2.8 for the interiors of vehicles or also for the landscape shots on which also automobiles are to be seen. Add to that the Tamron 100-400mm and a Tamron SP 35mm f / 1.8 fixed focal length. The fixed focal length Thomas uses especially for the details. Thomas also has a self-made camera rig. This camera arm, he can attach to the cars with suction cups and thus photograph the vehicle even while driving. The five-meter-long arm is then retouched during post-production.
What else should you pay attention to in automotive photography?
The vehicle has to fit the location. A sports car is therefore not in the area and a dirty SUV not better on the racetrack. Thomas always has a lot of cleaning utensils, because "cleaning up" the vehicles later on the computer really does not make much sense.
More answers and tips from Thomas are in the interview which we found in the blog of Foto Erhardt: click
