Did a rig-shot tonight for an upcoming tutorial. I was praying for rain, but didn't get any, pesky atheist. lol

It's a great shot man, and I love the flare. I actually would have removed that antenna, but that's a personal thing. Top work as always.

Had a fantastic time last Monday when Easton Chang came to town. He's doing an automotive photography tutorial video with RGG EDU, and wanted me to help with the rig section. It was a blast, beginning to end. All the pix are 1920, and I think this forum is stuck in the 90's with their picture sizes, so the gallery link is below. Hope you all enjoy.

I've already posted this shot everywhere else, might as well add it here! I really like this shot, and it's one of my favorites, but I didn't get the kind of response I was expecting. Welcome any C/C!

What's funny is that 10 years ago a shot like this would make you a photography God, but in today's world that just doesn't happen. There are a few obvious issues here that are working in concert to hurt the shot. I will list them for you.

- over-exposed sky
- under-exposed subject (lack of detail)
- reflections on the back of the car breaking it up
- weird crop
- bright spot in the grass on the right taking away from the subject
- cool, de-saturated color tones

I wish I could show the shot that Easton and I did about a month back, you'd understand all of this immediately.

Try re-processing the shot doing 100% recovery on the sky, warming the entire photo up, and cropping it down a bit. Don't forget to remove the bright spot in the grass on the right.

Thanks Andrew! Exactly what I was looking for!

I do have a warmer version at home, I'll use that as a base as I am going to fix all the suggestions you gave me.

-sky: was kinda on purpose, but missed the mark
-refections: wanted to keep it true to the environment, but I will tone it down
-Crop: 16:9 movie crop...mixed reviews, luckily I have about 3 differently cropped versions of this
-Grass: there was actually a small drainage stream, the bright spot is a small pool of water, I'll ditch it (see what I did there)
-easy fix!

Besides what Andrew said, I might put a white car in that spot because they don't reflect much, like the tree reflections that I don't want to see in the body.
Darker paint reflects everything, which is why I like John Owen's shot a few posts above yours. He used the sky to put nice highlights in the body that show us more of the shape of the body.

Although I agree that white does not reflect the environment as much, I feel like white cars are less successful overall as rig-shots for this reason, and many times you only have the windshield to help with the sense of motion. Remember, in a rig-shot subject is the motion itself, not the car.
