    I had some free time so I thought I'd finally get some play time in at a neat(ish) location today. Trying to get back into shooting since I've taken so much time off from it this past year.

    Well, the location was pretty cool, but I soon found out that it was utterly INFESTED with mosquitos. I probably have malaria now. Fuck. Anyway, three shots for....whatever.

    Not really. You need some guidelines to help you out, champ?

    Best of a bad lot really.

    1: Boring composition and pretty fucked in post. Background is flat and unnatural looking and the rover seems disconnected from it. I might re-edit it, but the composition really isn't worth the time.

    2. the branches from either side are too closed in on the truck. It might have been better with a closer, lower angle. Also I have the air suspension up and it looks like it's tiptoeing.

    3. Light fucking sucks. I needed to pull the car 2' forward and turn it to the left about 1'. That would have cut the glare on the passengers side rear, and possible evened out the lighting on the front. I was shooting at the wrong angle to the sun for the CPL to have any effect. The alternative would have been to use fill light on the passengers side, but I don't have a powerful enough strobe to hit it.

    All shot with ambient light only.

    I'm really damn rusty with my tools. :wtc:

    Oh man, three would have been perfect if you had taken bracketed exposures and then merged them to preserve highlights and shadows, creating some sort of photo with an expanded large dynamic range. I can't think of a good name for what type of photo I'd call it, but I'm going to invent something so we can all do that!

    Loooks good homie . The first shot is great minus the wheels don't really match the tires brightness . I'd raise the tires up about .5+ stop . But keep the same contrast .

    It's your best of the bunch . The other's have some pretty bad reflections obviously due to the tree's and lighting that was available . The 3rd would be my 2nd choice .

    I'd disagree. But then, I think all three of them are really weak.

    You haven't seen my other stuff, have you?

    Comparatively speaking, those are utter shit.

    Again though, thanks. :h5:
