    a buddy and I took out his evo after he got it back from Buschur for a FP Red install and a tune and he decided he wanted some pics.

    wish i had some lighting equipment and a better lense then the 18-55, but any input on what to change or how better to arrange the car would be cool. never "posed" cars before so

    and is this an idea that is worth exploring more?

    I think there is too much stuff in the first one, and the reflections are distracting

    the second one has an angle in it, I don't like it. The exact same framing but horizontal would be better, but still not great as focus is all over the place

    so maybe angle the car more so more of the wheel is in the frame and just shoot it horizontal with focus on the wheel

    yea i wasnt using my focus points

    both shots have headstones sticking out of the car at weird places...

    When shooting stuff like this, pay special attention to the edges of the car. Nothing should be directly intersecting the car.

    yea, im thinking about going back and shooting the first shot again but just have it straight down the road with the car sitting at an angle.

    thanks for the c&c, any more would be appreciated

    use wider aperture, so the background is out of focus.

    keep the camera level, at all times!

    Pick a different location. There's too much clutter in the area to get a decent photo IMO.

    As soon as I saw the first one with the rail track leading up to it I thought it would look sweet with some cool processing.

    :werd: this one is underexposed, but i actually like the composition. could use a tighter crop (bring in the sides,) though. with a shot like this, you're either going to want to use a tripod, and go with a longer exposure, or get some off-camera lights. Good setup using the rail to drag your eye kicking and screaming straight to your subject.

    i disagree. some of my favorite shorts are intentionally crooked camera shots where straight lines create a perpendicular setup

    this pic was like #100 on my d90 when i got it. it isn't the sharpest, but i always liked it

    [​IMG]

    The ground is crooked as hell but her standing there and the plane form straight lines. It's my homo-artsy side kicking in

    Wow going back I realize how dumb I was with underexposing and wide apertures. Uggh

    was also shooting with the 50 1.8 that day since it was the fastest lens i had. so tight to use indoors :(
