^ my car has saggy butt, too. ive played with photoshop a few times to fix it. ... but one thing i can say is that the car sure does handle well.

anyways, i recently took this shoot in a structure that had cars in the background. i tried to componsate by going for a darker theme to keep the car as a primary focus. but i feel that something is still wrong with this photo and i cant figure it out. not sure if i should have cropped it closer to the car or not what do you guys think?

great shot skim!

kinda looks like a scene from a movie, you should put 2 bar bars, top and bottom and see how that turns out

I like the angle on the side shot. Side shots are usually sooo boring. Its a nice change of pace I think. Kudos

Yea I dunno, I have both versions, this probably just has too much angle to it.

I think this is pretty damn good as it is man The overhead lights aren't overpowering, there's no real obnoxious hot spots on the car, and the lighting on the front of the car is pretty much perfect. Yeah, you might have cropped it a little tighter, but I think that's nitpicking. Good work!

Hey Armin! Was hoping to get some c/c on the following shots I took during the Cascade Loop a month or two ago... what should be done differently, what works, etc.

(Still new to the DSLR world, was mostly practicing shutter speed for the rolling shots. Was borrowing 12sechatch's Sony.)

















Feel free to pic out your fave's and simply comment on those.

Lots of good shots overall. Most of them are nice and sharp (especially the rolling shots) and there's a good sense of speed in them too. I don't really see much to truly critique...the Legacy in one of the rolling shots is cut off at the edge of the frame and the black 06 WRX is a bit blurry. The only real thing that stands out is that most of them are a bit center-weighted, so I'd try to avoid that in the future. Otherwise, nice work!

Nice lighting on these He's up pretty high grinding on that thing! The 2nd pic does have a few shadows that create some mixed lighting though, but that's nitpicking.

Awesome. Yeah, I'm trying to get the whole "thirds" rule down in regards to the center weighting. I'm just trying to get plenty of practice in before I pick up a DSLR of my own.

Cheers!

I like it a lot...but you do have a slight hotspot on the front of the hood that could be smoothed out a little bit. I bet you can also chop out the red exit sign pretty easily too.

Damn Armin I haven't taken too many car pictures lately... but I don't think I posted these up yet. What do you think?




These were a last-minute thing to help me friend get some pictures to sell his car, so we used a close location with absolute crap lighting, but just let me know what you have to say.



I have a couple others but I feel like I already know the advice you'll give. haha. Probably know it for the ones I posted too but I'd like your input. XD

Car positioning is good for the first two, but yeah the location isn't the greatest and they're extremely underexposed. The lighting definitely isn't the greatest either, and you probably need to adjust your white balance to compensate for the overly-orange/red tones. I would also probably shoot from a lower angle as well, since it looks like these were taken at standing eye level.

I don't really have any specific advice for the Takumi car photo...it just seems like a snapshot and I'd probably change the entire photo altogether.

Well I have been reading this post for a little while and really don't have the funds for a great camera. I currently own a Polaroid T737 7.0 Megapixels, nothing to write home about. Anyways, i finally got a chance to clean my baby hardcore and take a few pictures. Of all of them I think I have a few decent ones. Thoughts?

Just a select few that I didn't mind from a weekend cruise. Came back through the heavily bushfire effected Kinglake area.

It's not fantastic - with the element diffraction-y thing, and the strange grainyness over the rear car (might actually be reflection on the dash, as it was quickly snapped from inside), but there's something I love about this:


Lighting was far from ideal on these two (nice harsh direct light which make lovely hotspots and sharp-edged shadows), and the 'photoshoot was unintentional (as the others tried to work their GPS's ), so I couldn't reposition the cars





I don't mind this one, but there's something that ****s me, but I can't quite put my finger on it. The front bumper was dirty from rain during the day, which makes it look grainy aswell.
