    what year is your car? I like that year, debating getting one. Can you buy a hardtop for the verts?

    Mine (the red one) is an 05, pputkowski's (silver) is an 02. And yes, you can get a hardtop. There are actually a few choices you have if you do that route too.

    the first one is too soft but the composition is nice. The second one has awful lighting and not enough contrast, but also nice composition, although the pic should have been from a lower angle.

    ahh sorry i thought yours was the silver. I like the factory lip you can get for the 02 and just the front bumper in general.

    i go by this creed on car photogarphy...
    you must be able to tell the difference between the tire, and wheel well/car shadow.
    a fill flash on the right would be perfect

    i thought about that after i got back and put them on the comp. I need to start using some fill flash for stuff like that. Some of the rolling shots I got make it look like there is no tire :rofl:

    S2000's are sexy. On the first photo I would've gone with something wider than 2.8 though cause the front wheel and mirror look sharp but the fall-off was quick after that.

    It's something I've learned assisting weddings. They all have f/2.8 lenses but RARELY shoot wide open cause if you miss the focus even by a little you missed the shot. I used to be obsessed with bokeh (and still am a sucker for it) but I've been shooting a little more closed lately and getting better results.
