so i went out today after having a couple of VERY stressful weeks of school and working on the weekend to try to relieve some stress by taking pictures. It only stressed me out more b/c i realized i wasnt as good as i thought, i think the only thing that made the rig shot come out half ok is the fact that i shot with the L lens, my cheapo 18-55 would never get teh quality in the condition that i had tonight.. i dont know if im just overly critical, or if i was just too tired to really make anything work.. I also dont know what i was smoking when i was adjusting the white balance, the overall color of the photo is pretty horrible i think

and here is a quick, crappy quality timelapse i shot while doing the rig shots

I also decided to try some night flash photography, and again, i thought i was much better at it than this... i was only able to salvage 1 good pic out of the 20 or 30 i snapped. I think the problem was that it was completely dark outside, so the flash just simply exposed the car the way it looks normally.. if there was a sunset or something that i could expose the camera to and then play with the flashes to properly expose the car it would have looked better... but right now they just look boring... here it is:

and the timelapse for this portion of the shoot:

i also found it hard to shoot the supra with flashes b/c it has so many damned curves.. no mater where you place the flash some angle, somewhere, will reflect it...

so what it boils down to is practice, practice, practice, practice, and more damn practice, < all of the activites for which i do not have the time for b/c the last semester in school is so freakin busy.

#1: Try turning in the other direction so we see the wheel instead of the tire.

so what it boils down to is practice, practice,...

What it boils down to is natural late light will almost always make them look better. ;)

Great attempt but yea turn the wheel the other way...rim > rubber LOL :D

Also check your white balance settings to get rid of that yellow tinge. Spend time setting/thinking of the shot and you will get better results :)

the image itself isnt bad. the WB isn't that big of a deal as you can adjust it in post. i would definitely turn the wheel the other way as others had said. keep shooting!

i have sets upon sets of my car with the wheel turned the other way, i didnt have anyone elses car to try the new lens out on so i tried turning the other way to get a different perspective. I actually made the color balance that way in post, like i said, i dont know what iwas smoking. I need to calibrate my monitor b/c my colors change when from viewing them in the viewer and opening the .CR2 viewer..

if you want to try something new mount the rig in new positions, or try new locations, you'll get something new that way. OR another car always helps haha :)
