I´m all new to car photography. I tried to do some shots while my wife was driving today.

Well, that was constructive criticism!

Instead of calling it an epic fail and laughing at it, maybe you could tell me what is wrong with it, and what I could do to get it better?

I like that shot, but you obviously don´t which is okey. But as I stated, I´m all new to car photography so constructive criticism is welcome.

Nothing is in focus. There are no shots of the car.

I agree. I Think the issue with that shot is that you didn't have the camera steady in the car, so there is motion INSIDE as well as outside, which you generally want a sharp image on the inside, and show the motion and movement on the outside.

good first shot at getting some interior auto shots in a moving car.

Hello! Thank for some constructive criticism. About the #4 shot, I guess that´s the one you mean?
It´s supposed to look like that. I focused on the instruments and then I zoomed at the same time I took the shot. So the meaning is that not much is going to be in focus. In other words, I wanted that shot that way ;)

I did the same way with the zoom on the two last ones.

But thanks for at least giving constructive criticism :)

Best regards/Daniel

Oh ok well if you meant it to be that way, then you don't need any C&C on that one, good! :lol:

Here is what I see; the lighting kind of kills the shot (which it is always going to do in a moving vehicle). The subject is dirty and it shows in the pictures…a clean car presents the best pictures. In your first shot you can see the dirt/dust on the window. And overall the “outside” needs to complement the shot. This is why typically cars are shot in studios so they can just do a white background. For a family shot, this is just right, to sell the car to the world, not so much.

I agree with you. It was really hard with the lightning. And I saw the dirty window which was kind of disturbing. But as I live in Sweden you can´t have the car clean for many minutes of driving this time of year;)
These shots are not meant to be commecial shots of course. Only to be kind of cool shots. I also don´t have a studio to shoot the car in;)
Anyways, thanks for the tips. I will try to think about them the next time.

Best regards/Daniel

Well, you do, sort of. Find a good background. Wait for the light. Then shoot.
