On Thursday, August 30th, 2007, following my participation in the 9-3 Drive event earlier in the week, I was able request a pre-arranged a photo opportunity with the Saab Automobile Photographers. These photographers were part of the ongoing Saab 9-3 Drive event taking place at the House of Sweden here in Washington, D.C. throughout the week.

The objective of this photo shoot was to depict the LED illumination of the new 2008 Saab 9-3’s “brow” effect above the headlights while also showcasing the illumination of the House of Sweden in the background.

We began shooting at 7:30pm sharp and went for a solid hour from dusk to complete darkness. You can see that the quality of the photographs followed suit with the amount of light that was remaining by the end of the shoot.

The Saab 9-3 models that I chose were aero designations in black, red and nocturne blue. It appears that the best color that was photographed overall was the 9-3 Aero in red as it was quite versatile in both light and dark situations.

Overall, the objective was certainly met as you can see with the illumination of the new Saab 9-3’s brow effect LED being prominently showcased with the most appropriate backdrop as the final installment for the Saab 9-3 Drive Event.

A great photo opportunity for the record that I think Saab Automobile will appreciate it moving forward, when making references back to this truly historic media event at the House of Sweden in Washington, D.C.

    Thank you for your kind words. The new MY2008 9-3s are really stunning and with the 2,158 changes, you can certainly tell the difference with additional confidence in upgrades, build and mechanical quality.
