Post your Automotive Photography

I looked around and couldn't really find a thread to post these in, but I'd like some critique. I belong to several photo forums, but there's a lack of appreciation for the automotive aspects of photography. So Ill be using this thread to post any new shoots I'm come up with, and I encourage anyone sharing the passion to post as well. This thread is meant to showcase and receive constructive criticism.

Here's a set I just took yesterday, let me know what you think. The car was parked on a "patio" in front of a mall so I was very limited on angles and etc.















And here the tips that got me started. A long time photographer, published in many of the top auto magazines decided to help aspiring photographers, by giving feedback and critiquing their work. Its unbelievable the amount of time hes put into this, the original tread is approaching 3500 posts! I wouldn't be at the level I am today without his help.eres a link to the thread:

Feel free to go post in the thread yourself, and even though its a subie forum, the thread is open to anything auto. I still post there regularly with my jeep.

constructive criticism eh? on the first picture where you took the logo off the door, use a gaussian blur to mask it better since your reflection is a bit sketchy in that area. and try and sharpen the back end of your second to last picture. lol

Honestly I can't really say much other then that, The pictures look great. Good job!

I especially like the desaturated pictures where you masked off and kept the red.

Nice pics. Very sharp. I see what you mean about the backgrounds. Tough to get anything shooting at a mall

there is a great How to take pics thread on NAISOC. Your beyond the basic level of that thread but it was helpful for me

cant find the damn thing now though

Great thread. Some of those pictures are awesome. I have been waiting for summer to do pictures of my Porsche around the city, and some obligatory Hooters girl pictures. The Jeep likes to pose with the girls, or be shot in action off-road.

Me, taken by my friend on our way back from a Cars & Coffee.




Pis I took at Red Rocks park last year.

Also, have you ever tried shooting using the rule of thirds? Makes the image more pleasing to the eye in many cases, its explained well here on the first page:

These are a good start. For the still pics of the Porsche, try turning the wheels to face the camera, as seen in the pics of the Blacked out legacy GT. Also, don't be afraid to try different angles! Often times a good photo isn't a centered one, don't be afraid to get low to the ground or to find a way to get some elevation, the picture will always do a better job of grabbing the viewers attention if its shot from a perspective most wont see a car from when just passing by.
