The car looks a lot lower than in the last pic you posted. Photoshop?

Reason I ask is that the edges of the car look a little soft.

Yes definitely photoshopped, i lowered it and also used a pic from Armins EVO shoot at IIRC golden gate park. i took a pic at the beach yesterday and the sky was total overcast and it looked so blah, so i decided to try compositing to make it a little nicer to look at. It looked better close up in PS. Was using a featherd eraser tool to blend the scenery layer but i might have used it to brush away sections of the car on accident.

Sick crew! I think the angle might be a little too much on this one, and I do wish we could see more of the green car.

Very nice B&W conversion. I've always found WRB a bit difficult to convert into B&W because the blue tones have a tendency to get a bit muddy-looking when converted to B&W. I think it could also use a little more overall exposure and maybe some contrast to get some true blacks in there.

Careful with the saturation on these two. I love the pop of the colors, but your reds are starting to be too saturated that you're losing details and body lines. The sky's also getting really muddy in the top left corner of the first photo.

lol I see what you did there! When you're doing comps like this, you're going to be better off using a layer mask with the car cut out with the pen tool to be the most precise. A feathered brush can work fine too, but if you really want to be exact with it, there's no substitute for the pen tool.

Your composition on the first photo is pretty good, but I don't like how the vignetting is starting to leak onto the car, particularly on the right side of the frame. Also, make sure the windows are rolled up, and I think it would look better with the headlights turned off since it's midday.

In your second shot, definitely ditch the fake lens flare. There's a time and place for it, and the goal is to make it look realistic. This one definitely isn't realistic, and it doesn't make sense for it to be where it is either. Also, since this is a side profile shot, you want to really make yourself as perfectly perpendicular to the car as possible, so you'd want to take a couple steps to your right. When you look through the viewfinder, you want to try to not have any of the front or rear of the car showing up in the shot. Finally, if you're doing a side profile shot, this is an instance where you want to center the car in the frame.

Thanks! Yeah I was going for more of a "dramatic" effect with the vignetting but will tone it down. I actually took pics of his car simply for the sake of him trying to sell it. Got bored today and did some editing.

The lens flare in the second pic I kept going back and forth. Figured what the hell and put it in. Now I know and will remove it. When I took these my friend was on a time crunch.

Thank you very much for the constructive criticism though. Will definitely use/keep these tips in mind for future shots!

Hello all! I recently got a Canon T2i in march and started reading this thread at about the same time. Just wanted to say thanks to Armin for putting this together, it's been extremely helpful to me while I've been trying to learn. I recently went to my first race event at Drift Atlanta and took a few pictures that I wanted to share and have critiqued. Luckily, I was able to borrow a 55-250mm kit lens and a 70-200mm non-IS for the day, as my lenses are the 18-55mm kit and 50mm 1.8, not sure how well they would've done . The pics are not as clear as I'd like, and I had to edit on a laptop, so might be a little too dark and contrasty. I still need a lot of practice at panning, but I had a lot of fun. Let me know what you think, and, thanks again for your help.

1/25; f6.3; 84mm


1/80; f/14; 171 mm


1/30; f/29; 73mm

I would clone out the lights and the poles on the horizon in both photos. They are kind of distracting. I think it will look a lot cleaner.

I know there are many things wrong with this pic but it was the only pic that came out decent enough to play around with. I was using a friend's 20D w/ kit lens. Haven't held a camera in oh... 12 months? This pic took a lot of work to get it to this point, though.

Anyway, just wanted to share

Here are few photos from my first attempt at car photography. Any input is appreciated. I have much to learn.

Taken with Canon T3i, Canon 50mm f1/8 lens. Raw edited in photoshop CS6.
