could be a combination of both. its really hard to say because your camera settings all reflect around the given light... certainly, you could slower your shutter speeds... without a tripod, you might get motion blur from shake... so typically, people crank up the ISO.

for darker situations. tripod is almost mandatory IMO. unless you are rocking a D3. with insane ISO capabilities.

i know this first one is not gonna be everyones cup of tea, but it's pretty aesthetically pleasing to me.


trying to get a little artsy on this one at the finish line. not sure if it worked...

So i remember some months back, KP, Armin and i were chit chatting one day. and i remember discussing going back and re-editing an old shot now that my processing techniques have changed quite a bit (got away from the HDRness)..

well, since i havent taken pics in some time (aside to a couple of flash stand tests that were all severely underexposed) i figured this would be a good time to go back into my hard drive and do just that.

this shot was originally taken on 10/26/08. haha, man, i remember pulling off the side of the road to snap it. (Big Bear Mountain). i know being mid day lighting, the rear panel highlights were blown to ****. that i couldnt recover (unless someone wants to explain the process of recovering that data).. looking at the original and the edited version, i can see exactly how my style of photo processing has changed. and i feel its for the better. just wanted to prove with some post processing practice as well as capturing some important camera data (without blowing the highlights on the car out) and with a good location behind the car, you can make a photo that doesn't just look like a snap shot.

anyhow, here is the non edited as well as the newly redesigned version. EEEK!

seriously! i guess after processing 10,000 images you tend to get a feel for things much better. i only spent about 10 minutes on that photo to tweek things, crop, add a gradient and get rid of bushes. not a whole like of work like some people spend on their images but enough to make a decent shot

If only you could get in your time machine, go back to that moment and roll the windows up.

I like the re-edit man. Very nice!

Photo looks good, though I wouldn't have the car running out of the frame. In the original is there space to have more road in front of the car?

I love driving around looking for new spots. Connecticut might not have the best nightlife or things to do, but at least the scenery is nice.

I have not been in here in a while unfortunately. But here is my latest submission. I edited this one with lightroom only thanks to armins newest video cant thank him enough. I still suck at shooting/editing hence why I cant merge two pictures to fix the windshield but hope you guys enjoy regardless.

Yeah the only crispy was this one and yeah on the left side i dont have more space

I was in monza yesterday for the 6 Round of the IDS (german drift series)
Bad weather (rained basicaly the whole day) so no smoke from the tires.

So i started to go pretty low with the shutter speed.

This one is OOC i will post a proccesed version later this week

That shot is fantastic! I love it.

Here are some of mine, please give me some feedback on how to improve! I've only been shooting for about 2 weeks now. Trying to learn as much as I can!

I think I am overcompensating with photoshop..idk.


















EDIT: Apparently I'm supposed to put a signature? Started doing that. I think I am overcompensating with photoshop now though.

Guidance and opinions as always!

That's awesome.

To do a shot like that you need what, a relatively high ISO and max aperture with a fast shutter speed?

I dig it...that lens is treating you very well Contrast is definitely on the high side...no way to bring out any shadow detail without losing too many blacks?

Nice and sharp! Processing is just about spot-on, but like with Andy's shot, contrast seems a bit on the high side with some lost shadow detail. If you can get just a little bit of that back, I'd say this photo is about as good a panning shot as you can get.

all your shots are really underexposed. notice, we can barely see what your rims look like (although most subaru guys know what they are looking at)

in your two brighter shots, you have things growing out of the car. this is a big no-no for automotive work. also, shooting in parking lots is also a general no-no (unless its in a secluded area with little to no distractions)

review, study, and keep playing with your camera. it'll take a lot of work to get up to par with what some of the other guys are doing in this thread with automotive work. it doesn't mean you cant. it'll just take time to remember all the little secrets about making cars look good
Thank you Andy for filling in for me while I was out of town. This is exactly the same advice that I'd give you, aTriz.

Your compositions are pretty good for the most part! Your first photo has a little bit of tree growing out of the roof of the car, but the second photo has an even larger tree growing out of it. The Forester is pretty high off the ground, so I'd definitely recommend getting really low to give it a sense of size and power. It also looks like you can make use of the surrounding roads for some longer-range telephoto shots as well.
