My car is going to be a 'featured ride' on a small old-school (15+yrs old) Toyota community website so they asked me to do a photoshoot of my car. Being a wedding photographer, I was unsure of doing a car shoot and had no ideas how to process it.

In the end, I decided to go with NO post process whatsoever... these are the shots STRAIGHT out of the camera (except resizing for POTN rules). C&C is great before I submit them to the website. BTW, I was going for the darkish-shadowy look.

In the below shot I think I might clone out the buildings on the right and tree leaves coming out of the hood... but other than that, I don't think I'll do anything else. opinions?

I really like #1 best.
Maybe without lights on and white license plate holders.
Nice work. :)

The sky in both shots are completely natural. You can see the same gradient in the sky between the two. In the second pic, I was just trying to use it to look like the car was glowing or something. But the car is not naturally lit. I had 4 slaves with sunset gels to light up the car. (It looked too cold in white light) Otherwise, it would just be a sillhouette. There just wasn't enough light.

Use white license plate holders? huh? Or did you mean remove the license plate mounting tabs? Yeah, maybe I should have. I suppose that can be cloned out.

Nice work.

Well since you have image editing ok - this is what I did quickly through so Photoshop.

I think it improves the picture tons, its just a bit too dark in the one you posted so I adjusted the curves and this is what i came up with...hope you dont mind (if you do i can take it down immediately)

thanks andrew. editing is cool.
You can certainly see the car better in your mod. The lights you removed definitely help.
The contrast between the lit and shadowed areas are a bit too high imo. I was going for the dark, mysterious kind of look... kind of like the car is hiding, but I guess it doesn't float everyone's boat. But I do agree that maybe bringing the car out just a LITTLE more might help.
thanks!!

Sorry, I have no idea where you can get one in Chicago... I live in Canada!

But thanks for the props! It is running on a totally rebuilt redtop hi-comp with upgraded cams. JDM silver/blacktops don't appeal to me as it takes forever to order a broken part from japan!

Yea, I like the retouch as well - if it was my pic, the only thing I'd change is that I would clone out the reflection of the antenna on the hood... just my opinion tho... car is a beaut!
