View Full Version : 2007 Mazda3 Rig Shots
23rd of September 2008 (Tue), 11:09
Hey folks! So I am new here (but not entirely new to photography). I have recently delved into the rig portion of automotive photography and would like some pointers. These following shots are my first attempt at this, so be gentle (LOL). Any help is greatly appreciated. I do realize you can see the rig in a few of the shots... pay no attention to it... I did some very quick PP on them to remove the majority of the rig. I am moreso looking for help in terms of composition and camera setup. Thanks!

Thanks... I'd really like to get the rig setup again this weekend and get a few more shots.

And I quote... :D Most of these guys don't read, which is why they take pics!
Those look pretty good. Try to find a location where there's mostly sky behind you to get good defining highlights in the body without bad reflections.
And, do it in late light:

I like the last one with some light left in the sky, too. Do some more.

Good stuff. The second to last one is my favorite. if the car was a tad bit lighter it would be awesome

I'm looking into grabbing myself some lighting goodies soon... I was working completely off the light of the sky in the last four. :(

Another quick and dirty rig shot. I really need to get some lighting. It was a dreary, rainy day today. :(
