You've got the right idea, but IMO you're letting too much light in. My personal rule of thumb is to keep ISO as low as possible under any circumstances, since this will keep noise to a minimum, especially in low light settings. The background seems to kind of wash out in these. Judging by the glare, the car also seems to be getting hit by quite a bit of light. I think you may benefit from a filter or two as well lol.

Not that I'm any professional, but I've noticed quite a bit of progress in my shoots and had this problem as well. It's all about learning your settings.

Have you read David Hobby's Lighting 101 yet? It's online at http://strobist.blogspot.com/

It'll come in handy once you start using one or more flashes/softboxes/etc...

Sorry guys, I'm alive! Really, I am! I'm going to start catching up now, but in the meantime here are a few things I've shot lately...

I shot the new 2014 Corolla for Toyota USA on a crazy stormy day here in Seattle:







The really awesome thing is that I also shot Toyota's media event the next day, and they had my photos already up on a gigantic screen! I've never seen my photos this big before:



See it all here:

http://www.arminausejo.com/2013/09/2...or-toyota-usa/

I also shot a pretty awesome sunset:



I had a guest post about shooting drifting on Nikon Rumors:

http://nikonrumors.com/2013/09/28/gu...drifting.aspx/

Shot some crazy drifting in the rain at our inMotion Car Show and Drift Event:



http://photos.arminausejo.com/Events...inMotion-2013/

Shot some film with my dad's old Canon A-1 with some Kodak TRI-X 400 B&W film:



http://photos.arminausejo.com/Friend...0-AugSep-2013/

And finally shot the Seattle skyline in the fog last weekend with my new (to me) Olympus OM-D E-M5:

Many more on my Flickr but didnt want to post a bunch.
Nice angle and elevation on the first one. The only thing that's really distracting about it are the reflections, but you can't really do much about those other than removing them in post processing. Even a polarizer won't be able to get rid of them since the car is dark. The motion shots could be a bit sharper, and the static shot in the garage could use a little more exposure.

Thanks!

Did some motor sport stuff recently. I feel I'm still struggling on the crops for panning shots
Nice and sharp shots! As far as crops go, don't forget that you can also try to go wide too. Being able to see more of the overall scene can definitely add context and help the overall composition. You don't always have to crop tight For example:

The biggest problem you have here is the amount of available light. You're losing light fast, and shooting a dark car in the dark never really turns out good results. Your white balance is also a bit off (it's too cold).

Looks great, but I think you definitely need more light to bring out those shadow details. Be careful with hotspots too. What did yo use for lighting on these?

I might get a little lower if possible so that we can see the shadow of the rear passenger wheel, since I think that'll help your overall composition. I'm also not too sold on the location either, since it just doesn't seem to compliment the car very well.

You really can't do proper light painting unless it's totally dark out. If there's still light in the sky or from street lights, then just doing long exposures will work out a lot better. Try to keep Rule of Thirds in mind too, since most of your photos are pretty center-oriented.

Nice looking wall. I'd suggest trying to put more space between the wall and the vehicle so that you can give more visual separation between your subject and the background. Overall, I think you could use a little more exposure as well.

Your compositions are pretty good, but I think the mixed lighting is throwing off your white balance a bit. You can definitely see it in STI shot...that blue is not quite WRB, it's a bit too cold overall.

That's pretty damn spectacular. The only thing is that I wish there was either more rain drops (to make it look like it's totally wet everywhere in the photo) or that there were no rain drops on the car at all. With just a bit of rain on it, from far away it almost looks like there's ISO noise. The red saturation is also maybe a little too high, but it still looks great nonetheless.

Clouds look great, but I think you could got with a little cooler white balance overall. Everything is really brown and I'm not sure I like how that looks with your white Forester.

Very nice. I might've not had the car so close to the right side of the frame, or maybe crop it up from the bottom left corner a little bit. I also would hope for a little more smoke if possible.
