    My first thread :wiggle:
    Been a long time lurker and have learned so much from OTAP
    I know the locations could've been better, but I worked with what I had
    I suck at PS so you might see the cloning, but other than that they're pretty much SOOC
    C&C appreciated
    All shot with a 50L around f/2-2.8 1/160 ISO 50-200 + 6 stop ND + 3 Lumedyne 067x 400 w/s packs

    #4 is awesome. Can you clone on the little pebbles on the left side of the road?

    Thanks! NDs are fun. It's crazy trying to focus with a 6 stop ND on though. You're effectively reduced to like 1% of the light going into the lens

    Thanks! Yeah, I should... I'll probably get to that at some point. I actually don't like processing much... I'm lazy :rofl:

    Yeah, I know it's not for everyone. Especially since I still need to learn to control it enough to at least get the whole car :rofl:

    :bigthumb:

    Most def. Chick owns it and is actually looking to sell it

    :eek3: Girth likes. My life is complete.

    To bump down my exposure so it underexposes the entire scene so I can underexpose the background while maintaining a shallow DoF and then I use the lights to bring the car back up

    Shooting at a super fast sync speed won't do it? Or was it that bright out.

    Well the equivalent shutter speed is like 1/10,240 for most of these and my triggers only sync to about 1/200 and I don't think even HSS goes up to 1/8000 right?

    Yeah, looking a second time, I really love the lighting in this. The color of that car comes out so well. Great job.

    I would have just taken a little time to edit out the scratches and what-not. Not a big deal though.
