Definitely play around with your camera. I'm always learning when it come to shooting new places, equipment, and cars. Don't be afraid to just sit and think about it. and try new things. The weirder you look, is problably the better the shot
definitely play around with shutter speed, aperature and ISO as well.
if you think the lighting is off after you've shot it, try playing around with it on lightroom or photoshop. They're like wizards
shot this with just the harsh noon sun and a external flash. upped the contrast and clarity.
just used that one bulb you see there. no flash, just a tripod and paitence
used a soft box with a external flash and a radio trigger
i wouldn't say i agree with keeping the whole car in the frame all the time, but definitely know what your trying to show, and kind of exaggerate it alittle
wanted to show how tucked and low it was, as well as show the wheels and i really liked the headlights
Hope it helped! feel free to ask me questions as well
