Xluben to help you out he was using a led flash light and a 24 inch soft box.

I kinda wish you'd panned a little to the left (not knowing what's over on the left of course). Maybe had the barn on the extreme right with a little room for the front of the car to breath.

Whatever though... Great shot!!
yeah I would have but there was a big telephone pole there. I was in a hurry because I was taking the photos from someones field

i see that now. Thanks!

I did consider that, but after I got rid of it it seemed to kill the balance of the photo, and left me with the purply night sky above the trees to deal with. And I didn't necessarily want to go 100% black either. I like having something there, just something subtle. If I were to do that one again, I would probably put a radial mask over all the background lights and kill the highlights to even them out with everything else, but that photo was taken last spring and I don't think I still have the raw file to try it.

edit: The white wrx above this is a really good example of what I strive for. Not necessarily an angle I'd have done, and I would have killed like 99% of the blues in that but the low contrast and simple color background with a little something going on is awesome.

Shipman is correct, it is rebadged. But it is much more Holden then Chevy. Literally everything has been converted. The guy even went as far as traveling to Australia to get parts!

I like a lot of the shots here. Personally though, I would never use a stock lens for car images - they just don't turn out too well when you mess around with a kit lens.

Your camera is only as good as the person behind it AND the lenses that are used. Otherwise, your shots will turn out like crap.

I guarantee, the moment you go from a kit lens to a nice prime lens. You'll be shocked at how well your images come out.

i suspect my cheap LED light i got to replace the neewer light I lost is killing my batteries... keep recharging my eneloop batteries to have them go almost immediately dead. Didnt start happening until I got this damn light. I really dont want to have to buy another pack of batteries if these wont hold a charge anymore.

I was getting confused... It has a Victorian number plate on it, but it's on the wrong side of the road!!

I don't really agree with this. For a static car image in daylight where you can setup for the shot, the only advantages I can see a better lens having is sharpness and DOF. If your kit lens has crappy autofocus, switch to manual (which will give you more precise results with just about any lens). If your kit lens has lots of vignetting, correct in post. Now for low light handheld photos, or any other photos where you need a larger aperture, obviously a better lens is in your best interest and will produce better results.

I would argue that the majority of people posting photos with the stock kit lens 1) haven't had a DSLR for very long 2) haven't learned enough about the exposure triangle 3) don't understand composition, framing, creativity in the shots 4) don't know or haven't learned how to post process correctly.

You give someone who knows what they're doing a camera with a kit lens and you know damn well they will still put out fantastic images. Putting a nice prime lens on your camera isn't going to immediately make your photos 10x better. The same way switching from crop to FF won't make your images 10x better.
