    These are just toy shots. Canon 30D and used Canon lenses with polarizing filters (10-22 wide, 28-135 IS, and 17-55 IS wide)

    Just raw resized photos. I know how good you guys do. No reflectors or anything used. Just driving around town, taking shots.

    My friend took most of the really good shots. I have no clue what I am doing. I just have an eye for fun places and angles to take pictures of the car.

    Enjoy.

    If you want criticism I think 1 is over exposed, the first several have some really harsh reflections on the car, most of the crops are too tight IMO, the sky is white in like every picture, you could have angled the front wheels more towards the camera IMO...

    Like I said they're not bad, but you can improve on them.

    Yeah, the sky was dark grey/nasty all day long. We were just hoping for SOME kind of sun breakthrough, but it hardly happened.

    We got about 50 roll shots and that was one of the first ones picked out and resized.

    I also realized for the reflections on the car. A lot of places we went were very busy (Setting wise and people/cars) so it was tough trying to cut it down.

    I do know the Firehouse was VERY busy. We only wanted pics in front of the place with those garage doors down, but they insisted we went inside and took pics. I am going to email to those guys shortly for allowing us to take the photos in there. The fireman were very cool.

    Also, Any harsh criticism is fine. I like taking pictures and what not for fun. Anything helps. :)

    I know they are not the best. We just went around town burning gas and taking photos to help kill a saturday.

    Yeah, car pics are hard because the lighting is usually a PITA.

    Don't forget to adjust the CPL when you change position. CPL is fine in the 2nd to last shot but needs adjusted in the last photo when you got lower.
