How is this done? Is there a good link that describes the process for doing this? I been wanting to try this but honestly don't know where to start. I'm assuming it's multiple layers with a shot of the car with the hood closed and then a shot with the hood open blended together? Any help would be great.

the tall crop on this next one was done for more of an "iphone" format for his background

these two were shot into the sun, the ones with the sun at my back just seemed to turn out too yellow

put camera on tripod, take a pic, open hood, take a pic. put in photoshop, layer the photos, photo with closed hood on top, take eraser tool and erase away,

Maybe it's the green bike on the green background?

Great location! The car is a bit high in the frame a bit too far to the right edge...if you can get the car into that bottom right thirds crosspoint, you'll be better off. The photo is also very underexposed, probably because of the harsh sun. It's casting a really bad shadow in particularly over the front wheel, which has pretty much turned black. I would also get rid of those bricks in front of the car, since they act more as a distraction than adding to the photo.

That's how I did it. There are other options that are more technical...but for the engine bay shot like that...I really don't feel like taking the extra time. I do go as far to make sure the motor processing and the overall car processing are how I want them for the specific purpose before layering. In this case, the rest of the car was blown out in the motor pic...but that doesn't matter once you start to layer them up.

Nice, I think the slight angle works well for this photo. The Forester in the back is a bit distracting and if it came down to it, I'd probably clone it out.

The good 'ol see-through hood trick! I think this might've been better if you had a different overall composition, such as being closer to the car and not having so much space around it. From this point of view, it just looks like there's no hood on the car and you can't really tell that you're doing any special trick. It's almost as if you tried to completely remove the hood but did a sloppy PS job of it. Having no hood really draws attention to that specifically, thus having a nice background and other elements other than the car become lower priorities.

Thanks for the tips, first what do you mean when you refer to underexposed? I'm using an older digital camera my parents gave to me that's from like 01 and I have little control over the settings and such. Also the front wheel is almost black because I messed with the contrast and that is a result of it too high. I just started messing with post proccessing in photobucket and am still trying to get the hang of it as I seem to make the levels too high, but I would like to find something a little better to use. And lastly yeah I noticed the bricks after looking at them at home on the computer.

Green bike on green background is tough. It's easy for the bike to get lost with the background. On top of that, since you shot into the sun, you've got a blown out sky and some dark shadows. Finally, no polarization on the windscreen really makes the glare prominent.

It's underexposed because the photo overall is just very dark. Your car is white, but it definitely doesn't look white...it looks almost grey, except for the really bright panel on the side. Older digital cameras aren't very good with light metering and dynamic range, so once it senses that really bright spot on the side of your car, it thinks everything is too bright so it turns down the exposure for the entire photo as a whole.

Saw that one Facebook. I like the background/sky a lot. Care to share the original shot with the rig in place?

If I clone it out can I get an Armin approved stamp?

Nope, I don't give away stamps that easily Even if you clone out the Forester, in the end the overall location isn't all that special or worthy of getting a stamp. You've got signs, poles, etc that just have to do with that location and simply cloning them out will make it look better, but not stamp-worthy.

Damn I'm just going to go out in the desert so there isn't anything distracting in the background!

You don't have to go into nothingness...you just gotta make the best of your surroundings. Look at the photographers here on this thread for examples...even an empty street can make for a great background, you just have to be mindful of your surroundings.

Yeah I have a couple locations scoped out. It's just a matter of being able to be there at the right time of day. One is just a cement wall with cool stains running down it and the other has shipping containers, but they are green, so I'm not sure if that will work with my red car. Any thoughts?
