The job of a photographer is never an easy one. To attain the perfect picture, various factors come into play; requiring time, skill, abundance of patience and the meticulousness of a surgeon.
Felix Hernandez, a Mexican photographer, was hired by Audi to shoot the new crossover and being a professional in miniature photography, he opted for a very unconventional method.
Instead of shooting the actual car in the real world, he opted for a 1:43 scale model of the Audi Q2 launched here recently and replicated both urban and outdoors surroundings, all from the confinements of his studio.
The behind the scenes video shows the immense lengths he had to go to, especially in replicating the surroundings of a desert.
Locally, the new Audi Q2 is only available in a single variant – the 1.4-litre turbocharged 4-cylinder TFSI model – with 150 hp and 250 Nm of torque to power the front wheels via a 7-speed S Tronic dual clutch transmission.
0 to 100 km/h takes just 8.5 seconds, with top speed rated at 212 km/h. Despite being a fully-imported unit from Germany, the Q2 has been competitively priced at RM219,900.
