Thats not horrible for having no filter. The reflections are bad at all. I just wish there was a little more to the left of the car. Its in just a little too close for me. Focus is good though.

Thank you It seems i have to get this close to get a nice focus on my canon 50mm 1.8, its the only lens i have:/ I feel like i should buy another lens soon though, but i am flustered as to what i should get. Dno if i want another fixed lens, or if i should go for a zoom this time. Any suggestions?

Thanks, I took this for a friend who specifically wanted a background pic for his phone.

You don't have to always shoot at 1.8, go up a bit so you can get more in focus

personally, i am not crazy about 1/2 car shots like this. i always feel there is no subject. should i be looking at the wheel offset? the tail light? the pipes?

while i have done shots like this, it was when i first start shooting cuz i didnt know what i was doing. Ive found it better if you are going to cut off even a little bit of the car, you might as well get in really close and highlight SOMETHING.

ex: if you want to get the wheels, get a killer low angle of the wheel... don't need half a car in there to distract you from looking at your subject. otherwise, keep the car intact and at least do a tight crop of the entire car. just my 2C.

I'd like some advice as to what would work best for this shot. I plan on heading out tonight to this hill that overlooks a valley with a freeway going through it. I really would like to position my car on the bottom right and capture my car along with the valley and sky. The valley is pitch dark minus the headlights and taillights that pass through the freeway. This may be way out of league to do, but figured practice makes perfect.

I was thinking a high fstop to get more in focus, have a low ISO, and just try a really long exposure (I'll have my tripod). Would it be better to just bump up the ISO and lower the fstop instead?

always keep the ISO as low as possible in any situation. if its going to be pitch black night time, a good start is lens open (so f1.4 or as low as you can get) ISO 100-400, and anywhere from 15-30 second exposures. this should capture stars easily. introducing higher ISO's at night makes for a **** ton of grain, which will be even more apparent in post processing if you start trying to pull out more exposure/details.

you basically answered your own question. if you are using a tripod, no reason to go high iso..... only reason to do that is if you cant hand hold a slow shutter speed with the most open aperture you can get. Hence you'd have to bump up the iso to get the exposure right while still being able to hand hold. the numbers will change for everyone depending on how skillfully you can hold your camera at slow shutters.

What color is the car? I personally would add light somehow. Long exposures just don't look that good to me of cars. You simply just lose all the shine and gloss that light adds to the paint.

For your shot though, your aperture is really going to determine what you want in focus. Sure you can let more light in at say f/1.8.. but your focus is going to be very thing.

I would personally shoot at f/8 and for 20-30 seconds. However, you may need to shoot even longer if it is pitch black. I would keep the ISO as low as possible. Sometimes you simply need to raise the ISO along with shooting at a long shutter speed to get the effect you are going for.

I'm guessing the background/valley will look ok, but the car is going to look dull/flat. This is why adding your own light is important when shooting cars at night.

Fancy,

Thank you for the quick reply. The car is a light red. I'll be sure to mess around with the exposures and see how things come out. I don't have an external light source, so i might try and see if my friend can bring his car and possible use his fogs (bugeye) to light it up a little. Heck, I might just cave and buy a light source for tonight.

Not a problem. I wouldn't jump the gun quite yet on a light. Go out and see what you can achieve first, then review your shots and figure out exactly what's needed to improve on them.

I'll hold off on it then and see what I can do first. I'll be sure to post up the pictures of the weekend so i can get some feedback on them. Thanks!

ya that's an awesome drift shot. Lots of motion blur and super sharp on the car. What was the shutter speed and stuff of that shot?

that looks like the blur is added after the fact via PS. Not saying thats a bad thing but thats what I would suspect

this is an older one of mine i did, taken at a shutter quick enough to get a sharp car but slow enough to get a bit of blur then enhance that in PS with a motion blur layer mask

Your wheels are the perfect size. Fitment is spot on.

The car looks a little oversharpened in the first shot to me. The 2nd one doesnt.
