Lexus have over the last few years brought in a more cutting edge to their car design, the NX is a compact SUV that has a self charging hybrid engine and radical styling that makes it stand out from the crowd, especially in the metallic solar flare finish...
Ramsgate marina provided a perfect setting for the bright orange NX sport model. On a sunny Autumn morning last Sunday with permission kindly granted by Thanet District council I had the full run of the marina, colleague Nick Simmonds was also on hand to assist with the Profoto lighting. The sun was dipping in and out all morning and provided a full work out for the Profoto B1 and B2 location lighting. I used the 70-200mm telephoto lens and 14-24mm for the interiors, using the zoom allowed plenty of scope to cover some distant photos of the vehicle against the backdrops.the Profoto lighting comes in to its element due to the huge range it has, this was most notable during the photo of the Lexus at the side of th orange lifeboat, I was the other side of the marina with Nick holding the light to the right of the vehicle.

The car itself ticks all the boxes in the SUV segment, comfy, refined and this sport model had a few extras, panoramic roof, electric tailgate plus the edgy design that makes the car look very futuristic with its large grill and sharp angles. The hybrid engine is smooth and the automatic CVT box suits the car well. Many thanks to Motorline Lexus in Canterbury for the loan of the vehicle.
