    Looking good, and practice makes perfect. The best thing about a DSLR is you can take tons of pics and just keep the ones you want.
    One thing I like to do it get down low as it makes the car more aggressive, and the stance of your car would make it look really good.
    Take your first pic for instance, if you got your camera down low, around 18" off the floor (a small tripod is perfect for this) while still viewing at the same angle and twist the camera slightly clockwise / anti clockwise to get the car going from corner to corner it would get the desired effect.


    Not a brilliant example but it gives you an idea of what I am trying to explain.

    A tripod greatly increases the quality of your photos.
    Just need to get you into bracketing and light painting and you will be snapping away at everything. :icon_thumright:

    One thing to bear in mind is any reflection .....can be great pic but spoiled by a blurred figure.......also black and white can give so much more depth especially with the chrome on cars.....just keep snapping away and enjoy.if all else fails you can always touch it up in photo shop.........

    Bracketing and lighting you say.... will have to get reading online info and keep playing the advanced settings on the d3200 look really cool but as of yet im in no position to start with them haha :)


    Yeah i took a few in this local indust bit full of spray painted walls and got sum reflections ont car, but it was kinda dark so save that spot till a lighter day.

    Having my pc wiped and beef'd up so i can start using photo shop, ill have my work cut out but in the long run should be alrite :)

    Bracketing is taking three shots, one normal exposure, one over exposed and one under exposed and then you can stack them together so you get the highlights and nice dark areas.
    Light painting is just that, find something dark, use a long exposure and use a torch to "paint" the areas you want. I recommend a Lenser P7 for that. Try it in the garden tonight, long exposure of around 10 seconds and "paint" your shed with the torch.

    Like this of a pitch dark basement.

    car looks great fella, good luck with the photography, I've been toying with having a go but never got round to it. My uncle does it professionally so he'd always teach me! But as is the case with everything, other things get in the way!
