I figured it out! Check out the shade and hue. How the Viola Bast just jumps off the screen. Distance and angle are all very important. I hope to be taking more soon.

The best tip I ever got was to take photos from a distance. I was always taking photos from as close to the car as possible. All this did was made the car look extremely rounded. When I started moving back to a distance and zooming in, it keeps the flat, wide, angular look of the car intact.
Good advice. It doesn’t have to be a crazy long lens. The other thing that helps with a long lens for some angles is getting as low to the ground as possible. I took these two from on the ground with a 75mm lens at f/2.

Just found this video @2Tired posted in a thread on Parsifae. Made me wet myself

It's not. If you get Verde Mantis, you get Verde Mantis, same with Viola Parsifae/Pasifae. The pearl in Verde Mantis is MUCH more subtle than the pearl in VP, so you won't see it except under direct sunlight, and it's most noticeable along the sun lit edges.


Ordered a polarizing lens. Will attempt to capture the essence of the paint by playing with camera settings.

Installed the polarizing lens, and played a little with the fstops, distance and angle, but the quality is not where it needs to be. Day was overcast, so will try with better light for the pearl.

Time to start looking for a professional, and hope to get a video done. I'm using a Nikon P900 Coolpix, but admittedly I'm

not one to spend hours going through the manual and youtube videos to figure out all the settings.

And Kudos to Lamborghini for these car covers. Embroidered Logos in the front and back, contrast stiching, very high quality and a nice Bull patch sewn on the front as well.

^^Cool looking color.

Though, although I have the car covers I rarely if ever use them but they look sharp.

The flick of a switch….

I can’t stop trying to capture the essence. Comments I get about the color far outnumber any other comment or question.

Q: “What color is that?”
A: Lamborghini calls it Viola Bast, I call it Eternal Bliss

@Russk if this doesn’t convert you, I think hope is lost.

FWIW, my opinion is the trick is lighting.
Magazine photographers have written they use natural lighting during the magic hours, which I understand are near dusk and dawn. I think artificial lighting is better. Noting the type of bulb, angles, and filters.
Some investigation into paint or retail shop lighting can be beneficial.
Background and surface reflections; that is the art of photography.
Have fun.

Nice, that was on my short list for the STO especially after I saw Tim Burton's spec. Viola Bast has an insane flake pattern.
