used a small LED touch shining up at the front alloys, then used the light from the inside of the garage to give the light over the front of the car.

Try to use the same "type" of light, the wheel and wheelwell are now lit up like planned, but it's got the blue LED glow, while the rest of the lit portion of the car have the more white/yellow garage lighting, I like the gravel driveway though!

Haha honest words from a man who knows what he's talking about,

So something more like this would be of better taste?





Thanks as always,

continuing on my b&w conversions for the year... i did a quick snap of my car, while returning from a hike yesterday. lighting was really nice. not controlled though as far as posing the car so it still could be better.

Nice man! Black and whites are tough to master, that's for sure. I really like how clean the shot looks man.



Here's my B&W conversion of my last shot:

^ Yes, I agree. I love the orange'ish sunset color with the burnt tree in the background. B&W took away my original inspiration for the shot haha.

Completely playing with something here that is probably nothing. Just looking to get what you guys think...

The tree line would still need to be edited and I am trying to feature the sharp line of the body of the car.

for some reason i couln't make it really sharp. any tips for shooting in rain/snow? i has an umbrella and a tripod here.



i'm also terrible at shooting in poor lighting situations and night time.

all lights on:


majority off:



and finally i have a quick question about exposing clouds. i couldn't get the cars to be sharp and then have the clouds exposed...instead the sky is just white. any suggestions? and all i used to edit is aperture 3. i know you can take 2 pictures and overlay like HDR type stuff but i have no idea how to do that. i like to just shoot in manual and edit minimal amounts.



rest can be found here:

Jive-
In the rain/snow, can't you lower the f/ to get a good sharp image of the car at the expense of the fore and background?

Yep, that works so much better, aside from the high ISO making you lose sharpness and the non-polarized windshield of course

Winner winner chicken dinner. You, my friend, have outgrown that Tamron lens. I keep saying it because it's totally true. Excellent work man.

You're on the right track, but you just need more light and more exposure. Generally, you want to use a larger sized light...a mag light isn't quite gonna cut it unless you go over the car with it multiple times with a really long shutter speed. Try using a wider aperture too since there really isn't going to be much background you need to get sharp with a wide depth of field.

This is good advice, because multiple light sources create multiple white balances, which throws off all the overall lighting of the car. You'll also probably want to use a longer overall shutter speed as well, since it's still pretty dark despite the garage lighting.
