Feature Car: Craig Darcey’s Holden VK Commodore


30 Jun

Our photo shoot and feature story on Craig Darcey’s immaculate, tyre-frying VK Commodore known as TIDYAS, appears in the latest issue of Street Commodores magazine (issue 238) which is on sale now. The stroker Holden V8-powered sedan started life as a burnout car, but today is – as the plates suggest – a super tidy all-round street car. Be sure to read all about the build in issue 238.

Armed with our 100mm f2.8L macro lens (150mm equiv. with the 7D) we headed out to our local beach and shot some different grades of sand up nice and close. Even we were surprised by the beauty to be found in the tiny particles. Check them out! We’ve done our best to get corner-corner sharpness, so you at home have the greatest flexibility in how you treat the images in your design projects.
