Well my parents car is a Chrysler Voyager. It's basically a luxo minivan, and since I started doing Auto photography, I never thought i'd bother shooting it. It's kindah like a dull, black version of a Kia, but with leather.

Anyways, on a recent trip with my mum into the bush, I noticed some nice light and decided to give it a go. The result surprised the buggery out of me, producing actually decent, usable images (IMO). So anyway, I figured i'd throw them up here, and see what you lot had to say about it! Keeping in mind the subject, give us some feedback. I'd be very interested to know what you guys think of both the car, and the photos.

Cheers for viewing!

I never thought I'd say this, but that is just strait up gangster! Not bad for just a random shoot. Although, I did notice some weird reflections in the first one, they aren't a huge thing for me, but I figured I'd point 'em out. Good work man!

Haha cheers mate. That's the same thing I thought when I started shooting. Took a random snap and was like 'Wait... this might actually be viable...'

The weird reflections I think are mainly due to all the dust covering it (the road we shot this on was dirt, and we'd been driving on it for about 50kms before I pulled over to shoot). This has me thinking that maybe it'd be worth a clean and a planned shoot...

Yeah, I thought it looked slammed as well. Maybe a handicap accessible vehicle with airbags?

It should have stock suspension, but i'm not entirely sure. It definitely isn't slammed, but come to think of it, it does seem a tad lower than others. A lot of that may well be due to the fact that the road has a fairly extreme 'peak' in the middle where the van is sitting, so it's wheels may be sitting on a lower plain than the middle of the car, giving the appearance of it being lower.

Cheers for the replies, guys.

You made boring look better. You should shoot those things for a living. The only bigger challenge would be to make crusty politicos look exciting.

I like the second and third. The processing and DOF really make them pop

It must on some sport or adjustable luxury suspension. No factory cars that I know of come with no wheel gap. It does look good that way though, good work
