Default More Practice

As much as yall are probably getting tired of the MG, its my most enjoyable photo-practice car

I'm trying to focus on composition and lighting, and trying different post-processing methods.

Yall are also influencing me in that I'm trying to be more critical with what photos I take are good, and not just posting a whole batch of them. So from here on out I'm gonna try picking just a few from any shoot All of my words aside, here's this Monday's shoot.

Had a buddy pick up an N a fwe weeksa go and I went to check it out. It was actually really fun to drive and didnt feel at all like a FWD car. I didnt have much time for pics but we did 2 rig shots outside of his palce. It was the worst time of the day like 3pm on a GA summer day... Anyway I made it work with multiple exposures to compensate for all of it.

Hey thank you, I appreciate it!

In other news, I just picked up a CPL for my 50 1.4, the lens I use on my T7 the most. So i'm stoked to get out soon and try that out.

What are the best tips and tricks for using a CPL, and/or does anyone have any good videos/articles/resources for learning?

You just rotate it to remove reflections you donít want.

Don't worry, I at least understand that much

Mostly my question stems from using one before, and feeling like I really wasn't using it in a way to get the most out of it. So I was looking for any good resources before I go out and shoot to have an idea of how to use it to its fullest potential.

I feel like I'm not using mine to it's fullest potential either. I'm going to try multiple exposures with the CPL blocking out different reflections in each one and compositing them.

I think iím going to give this a shot as well. I took Friday night off of work so I could do a shoot for someone, but they cancelled so Iíll be cleaning and shooting my car.

Given that my car is dark grey and a PITA to shoot, iím hoping the cpl helps me. Maybe Iíll record my editing process and do a beginning/ending comparison.


Oh well, just getting out and shooting will probably help more than anything 🤷🏼*♂️

I'm on my 2nd DSLR and I still have a lot to learn! I think you will be able to do a lot with that 20D. A well composed shot on a consumer camera can still be a better photo than a poorly composed shot on a more expensive camera. I should know, I've taken some really crappy pics with my DSLR!

Two or three tips from someone who has no right to be handing out tips...

1. Get out and shoot. Shoot always and shoot often. Even if you're going for a drive without the intent of shooting, take your picture. I find its the times I don't take mine when I see the best lighting, or background, or inspiration hits. My line is, "I'd rather have it, and not need it, then not have it and need it."

2. Look into a post-processing software. I use Lightroom on everything, Photoshop on some. It's great for correcting white balances, little lighting changes, that kind of stuff. However...

3. Read the stickied thread out there, I believe its called "Armin's Quick and Dirty Tips..." The reason I mention that thread after the post-processing is he talks about "garbage in, garbage out." Essentially, post-processing won't save a crummy shot.

Which means...

Go shoot, and have fun! I look forward seeing your shots in here! And hopefully others will chime in and give you tips worth listening to
