First Photoshoot! Night shots + fish eye lens

Since it was such a beautiful day yesterday me and my friend decided to take a few photos of my car. We messed around with the aperature and exposure to see what we could do at night. oh and we used a Rokinon fish eye lens as well for some shots!

Thanks man! I took out the rear seats just to see if it would make a difference in the way the car feels and sounds.. Also they needed a good cleaning from a coffee stain (never allowing friends to bring drinks in my car again) so while I'm getting them cleaned I made the rear seat delete to put in place

Wayyy to many pics. Some look real good but for some reason the quality isn't as crisp as it should. What camera and editing program were you using?

I'll get rid of some of the not so good pics. The camera was a Nikon D5100 and i used photoshop CS6. I think the quality isn't as good as it should be because i uploaded them using photobucket.. Do you know a better website to use to get the upload links?

EDIT: i just got rid of a few of the pics that i didn't think were so good.

I have a D5100 too (see my pics here to see what you can get out of it and I've only had it since November, still learning http://www.flickr.com/photos/solidjake/

I use PS6 as well, make sure to save them as PNG files. For night shots I see you have a tripod but make sure it's a nice firm one that won't move around, you will also need a remote so the camera doesn't shake when you press the shutter button.

I always do PNGs. My friend is the one with the camera. he just got it a few months ago and is still learning. Great photos btw! the car show pics look great.

I do editing. I love working with CS6. theres endless amounts of things you can do to the photos. I'm constantly learning new tricks and stuff

Calliper covers...

When taking those shots, never position it so that the tripod casts a shadow onto the car/into the photo.
