    All handheld, 30D, kit 18-55mm, ND+2, and a CP. Lighting was kind of harsh at times, but the clouds helped me out alot.

    Nice colors, haven't put a CPL on my lenses in a while.

    Get lower, eye level tends to look more like a snapshot than photos taken at angles we don't normally look from.

    I know I mentioned the harsh light, but I forgot to mention one important factor; I happened to be in this town (BFE) that is 45 minutes from my house, when I found these guys were near me. I happened to have my gear, and have been wanting to shoot these three cars for a few months now (since my friend got the Comp Orange Cobra).

    So basically......this shoot was as impromptu as it can get. I guess if you take that into consideration on the CC, maybe it isn't too bad for what I had to work with?
    I've got a few that are lower, I just was going for that angle to show the colors a little better. I didn't include them in the set because I didn't want to repeat the perspective.

    Noice. One of my peeves of vehicle shots are when you can see the photographer all over the place in reflections. Good job on not showing up in any of these =)

    Drove around for 20-25 minutes and the best we could come up with was behind the new Walmart. :o :mamoru:

    Same lens that came with my 300D back in the day, and my current 30D.....Canon EF-S 18-55mm lens f/3.5-5.6

    I know this was impromptu, but just some food for thought on a future planned shoot: 10, and 12 could have benefited from some fill light (particularly on the front of the car). Change up the arrangements a little bit across the spread as well. When you've got them all sitting side by side like they're in a walmart parking lot, and it's the same in every photo... snoozefest.
