yes.  its the perspective created by lens choice.

i have to position the model so my black refrigerator is behind the model.

i use a long lens to compress the image.  compression is bringing the background forward by using a long lens.  i used 300mm for the motorcycle and 200mm for the car.  

you can see this for yourself by using a your widest lens angle and take a picture of something.  then use your zoom but step back and keep your subject the same size and you can see how the background gets closer.

i use a very small aperture, or lens opening,  f/16 to keep background light to a minimum.  

i use a separate flash and bounce it off the ceiling to illuminate the car from above.  the small aperture prevents the camera from picking up background light.

i turn off the kitchen lights also.

i takes several shots to get the right combination.

so by compressing the black refrigerator forward, flash from above, and the small aperture keeping background dark the image is made.

if you have any questions just ask.  when i take a picture of another model i'll take pictures of each step.

this is shot on my kitchen counter top during the day.

two remote flashes.  the flash on the right is positioned upside down so i can light up the wheels.

the other flash i hold by above the car.

the camera remotely controls both flashes.

the black blanket is covering my stove to cut down on reflections.

Here's my old one, working on a new set up now.  This a shelf unit with a grey vinyl window shade mounted on the back edge of the shelf above. The lamps are Fluorescent 26watt Daylight and covered with cut open milk jugs to to defuse the light some.
