It's really fun. I've done on about 5 different occasions but recently I got a kinda nasty burn on my side from a stray piece of wool sticking to me

I wasn't questioning if it was real or not it just had that look. your dad has some kicks ass cars! He's got the Bentley GT too right? I would be shooting those all the time if I had the chance!

$2899 was too hard to pass up.

Now to decide if I want to keep my MkII or get another 7D.

I can't wait to have a 7D one day! I just got my flash on Monday, so that's been keeping me busy.

I get to order a set of Alienbees too.

I don't know how you guys shoot weddings. I feel that it would be a lot of pressure to get perfect pictures. I get stressed trying to get awesome pictures of my kids!

LOL. Well done sir.

What I really need is a better performing low light camera. Inside my house I;m at 3200 ISO and shooting at f/1.8 to get my shutter speed even above 1/100. It's getting really frustrating with the slow AF and noisy pictures.

Well, now that it's winter, it is pretty much impossible for me to take a photo of my car during daylight hours during the week. Because of this, I have started trying to play with some night time shots. So far I think I'd consider my first two attempts as failures, but I do think I'm learning a few things.

Here's the first try. Obviously night time and very dark. This one I tried a 30 second exposure and using a single SpeedLite fired many times (probably two dozen). I simply walked around and fired it off. I tried all sorts of different power levels, and this is the best I got. It looks OK, but not great. I think black is very hard for this technique (also my car was filthy).





Second try was finding a parking lot with a little more light and doing a long exposure. I tried to park to get as much light on the back of the car as I could. I ended up doing 20-30 second exposures at ISO100 and f/2.8. Again these look OK, but not great. The color just looked off, and I couldn't seem to correct it properly so I just turned down the saturation and went with it (also, car still not clean, lol).









Overall not that happy with the results, but I don't think they turned out too horrible. I still need to work on the different techniques a lot, but maybe someday I can take decent night photos. I think I might try light painting next. I'll need to find a good light for that...

Biggest thing IMO is just looks super filthy but now it's winter time it's not as easy to keep it spotless I suppose. The shots aren't that bad at all as well.

Not a question or comment about the pictures but a question about your rubber. If I'm not mistaken those are Altimax Arctics, correct? If you have run those in previous winters how would you rate them on a scale 1-10? 10 being the best.

I don't think they look too bad at all! Especially if this is a first or near first try. Black is a really challenging color to get lit properly. You must have great recycle times (or using a lower power setting) on your light to get to fire it off a dozen times in 30 seconds! But, in all seriousness I highly recommend getting a high-output 5500k flashlight. Or even rig up a white fluorescent tube light to 12v of battery power and use that. You could also get a little soft box for strobes (I forget the manufacturer's name) to use either with your strobe or with this flashlight I keep recommending to people. And you might try bumping your ISO up to 200.

Yes, I hate how dirty it looks. I'm 100% positive that it would look fine on a nice overcast day though. The small light sources make the dirt show up so much more. My car is no cleaner than this for any of my day time pictures, and it usually looks super clean unless you go pixel peeping.

Yes, they are the General Altimax Arctics. I used them the last two seasons on 16" steelies. This year I changed to 17" OEM wheels and got the General's again. I'm very happy with them. They are great for the price. They do really well in the snow, and that's what I'm looking for. In the dry they're pretty mushy, so not the best for spirited driving, but that's not my goal.

I was using a 580EXII and tried various power settings from 1/32 up to about 1/4 power. Recycle times obviously went up as the power went up. I have stands and umbrellas/softboxes available, but I haven't had good results with those either. I did try increasing ISO and/or decreasing aperture, but then the ambient light started to creep in more.

Do you have any recommendations for a flashlight? Preferably something I could get on Amazon, or locally? I'm not really seeing much come up? If there are any good battery powered tube lights I would also consider that.

Would light painting give you more even lighting? (depending on how well you use the light of course) It seems like using a flash would make the lighting super harsh. I don't know much about this, I'm curious and would like to learn though.
