I like to see more lines from a car, shady side can bring some lines out... Especially on a white car. Just my way to shoot tho.

Cool, thanks. I know white cars are demons in the daylight to photo.

I like it. Quite a change of pace from the Lexus. Now you need to update your info again

An unsuspecting beauty sitting at the show I was covering this weekend.
Keep in mind, these are snaps.
All shot with the 70-200 VRI, ƒ4, ISO 400, in mid-day light on a very grey, overcast day.

Besides the aforementioned boom reflection, I feel like you've done better work overall. For some reason both shots don't seem to be quite as sharp as what I'm used to from you. I feel like just a little sharpening would definitely make the still shot great, but the rig shot is just a tiny bit shaky.

Nice shot! Your camera is really begging for that Nikkor though. If you get bored, I'd love to see you completely white out the background

I really like the lighting/exposure, the road in the background, and the great bokeh. Almost has a "tropical" feel to me?

I definitely don't recommend shooting while driving But overall I probably wouldn't cropped it a little tighter...it's good to see where the car is going, but I think there's just a bit too much space ahead of it.

This one was on one of the canyon roads in Azusa, CA. Any criticism welcome.


*made slight revisions...
I also feel there's a bit too much space ahead of the car in this one too. The sky most likely wasn't too great, but having the car a little lower in the frame would've been helpful. I like that location a lot though, and the use of the curve in the road is great! Also, is the T-top off the car? If it is, you probably actually want to roll the windows down (like you would with a convertible).

Nice shots! Way to make good use of your point and shoot. Overall they're pretty well done, but be careful about getting some shadows on the sides of the sheet. For example, in the very first shot, you've got a shadow on the left of the frame. Also, not really related to the photos themselves, but your watermark is pretty gigantic.

Very nice, although I don't know if I like the centered crop on this one. I kinda feel like I want to see more of the track ahead of the car.

YAY Audi! The centered crop works well in this set (as opposed to the 370Z shot), and you did make shooting shadow side work. I do again feel that your still shots could be sharper, and the second to last one has a big tree growing out of the hood of the car.

Very nice man. I don't have a single bad thing to say about it. I love how the trees on the right also add some framing to the photo too. You also definitely picked the right processing style.

Excellent work! You did very well with highlighting portions of the car. I wish you didn't cut off the edge of the Ferrari badge in the first shot, and it seems like your focus on the brake shot was more on the tire than it was on the brake caliper. I also kinda wish the red was a tiny bit more saturated overall on all the photos, but you did well nonetheless

Now that you mention it...

Although like I've always said from the very beginning, I don't get the graveyard photoshoots...not from you, and not from anyone else that shoots any cars. Just not my thing I suppose, unless I was photographing a hearse

Not bad...a bit too much JDM angle, and you've cut off the edge of the front bumper on the corner there. The white balance is very much on the colder side overall, and I'm not really sure what you're trying to highlight. That car has some definite potential and unless the garage has more badass cars or just has an awesome layout, I'd definitely get that car out of there an into a good location to shoot.

Thanks Armin!
You know now that you say it, it really bugs me that I cut off the Ferrari logo on #1! Thanks a lot haha.
The brake shot doesn't sit right with me either, seems to be a crisp focus on the tire, with both the caliper and center cap slightly out of focus... this one bugs me so much I almost didn't post it.

I've really been shying away from over-saturation these days, I used to have a bad habit of over-saturating... I really like how clean and smooth these came out, in PP it just seemed further saturation was a bit far. I still think the mirror and rim shot are a tiny bit over-saturated, both these shots are at -10 saturation.

Thanks for the compliments Armin, this 70-200 is just a dream to work with! It just has that "pop", couldn't be more thrilled with it, if only I could find autos to shoot with it more often...

I like graveyards because of the shapes the stones when they're blurry, it looks like an apocalyptic cityscape to my eye.

I like this pic, but the front driver tire seems heavy because of a dip in the road, and some of the stones behind the car seem too strong. I cropped it tighter than normal to keep the eyes focused away from these things, but was only mildly successful IMO.

Thanks, I agree... BTW, that was a very good suggestion. I think I like this version a little better. Thanks for all the tips Armin!

Yes, definitely! Thanks man. This was actually shot in the canyon roads of Southern California. I got up a little higher than 5,000 ft.
