    All photos are unedited. All photos have been "auto-resized" to 1024 res.. so I'm sure a tad bit of quality was lost :hs:

    Rebel XTi, kit lens.. noob user using everything from full manual, av, and auto mode. :hs:

    Be gentle.

    sexy. but i wouldn't take pics during the afternoon. take them when the sun's not so high in the sky, and you'll get better colours.

    based upon the shadows and reflection of the sun on the front bumper, ideal lighting would've been another 30-40 minutes.

    my advice - find a building with a bit more color as a backdrop, like a loading dock with a yellow or red or blue door. Silver would match the black well, also. Black is a tough color to shoot and to find locations that make it stand out.

    Learn yourself the Manual mode. Once I learned it, Auto setting has not been touched. :o

    Nice.

    Do you know of any good places to shoot in Houston specifically for black vehicles? I'm shooting an R6 next week and it's black and want a pretty decent back drop around central (downtown, or a little bit west south or north from it).

    I'm doing a bridal shoot on the Rice campus and surrounding on sunday. :mamoru:

    Don't know about locations for cars... but goto www.texasphotoforum.com and look around. People on there share good locations all over the state.

    or just shoot Black and white and save yourself the pain figuering out color choices. It also would look awesome.
