    Automotive Photography

    Hey guys, I love cars (especially my baby) and love taking pictures of them, always trying to improve my shots and style.

    I'd love to hear some constructive criticism from everyone here.

    Camera i used is a Nikon D90 with 18-105mm lens.

    Photos have been touched up with photoshop.

    Enjoy.














    I didn't receive my lowering springs yet so i photoshopped what the car would look like when dropped, did a pretty crappy job with the PS lol.



    First picture i took of my car when i picked it up, (point and shoot camera)

    All nicely composed images. The M3 looks awesome!

    Due to 18mm focal length used, the side poles on the pic 1 and 3 are leaning inwards. That can be corrected, unless of course you wanted the distortion and left it in on purpose.

    I love the non-lowered reflection in the water, of the "lowered" suspension
    ...although I must say you did a very good job lowering it in PS!

    Yea thats the problem with that lens...the lens distortion correction does help in PS...

    and good eye on the reflection!

    have you considered a circular polarizer to cut the reflections on the body/ glass?

    I never saw that M3 before, pretty awesome. The picture is pretty cool too. That car has a bit of that design style that makes the car look like it is miving, even when it is parked.
