Not even mentioning the efficiencies of larger countries.

As divided as this country is, at least we are one.

Anyone wants to try a double exposure effect to maybe show the engine bay through their hood,

Make sure there is not a lot of light when you try it out... PREFERABLY AT NIGHT!

ISO must be at 100, wide open lens, long shutter speed, I'd do 30 or 25

Open your hood and focus on the engine bay. "Shoot," and since your lens will be "open" long, close your hood after 10-15 seconds as quick BUT gentle as you can and get out of the frame.

Picture should come out nicely sharp, and you should see the engine bay + a light film over it, being your hood!

I don't have any on me, I'll be sure to post an example as soon as I can

Great thread. Very informative. Thanks for sharing.

I've got quick questions for some advice.
I plan to do a photoshoot in the evening (sun down - 2100 hrs-ish).

Any tips would be much appreciated.
My only setup are the following:
I've got a Canon EOS 50D with two choices of lens: (1) EFS 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6IS & (2) EF 50mm f/1.8 II.
I've also got a tri-pod.

Thanks.

tri-pod makes all the difference in low light situations. With a really long shutter speed you can keep your iso low and get really crisp shots depending on what lighting you have available to you.

These were shot at f3.5 w a 4 second shutter speed and my ISO was down at like 300 using the lighting from the warehouse building. The lighting wasn't as bright as it looks in these pics but bc of the long shutter speed and going a little over exposed (then corrected raw in bridge) you can make the parking lot look like stadium lighting

A colegue of mine asked me to shoot his Z3M cupe this weekend. well, I didn't had my tripod and he chose the underground garage as a location , so I had to improvise. There is some flourescent light in the garage, and I used my car to lighten the BMW some more. I held the camera as steady as possible. I wanted to reduce noise as much as possible, so I shot at ISO 100. I played with "shadow/highlight", "exposure" and "curves" functions in Photoshop and pictures came out rather well (IMHO).

They're pretty good for handheld. The first one looks a little "cartoony" because of the editing, I think the 2nd one looks better. I would suggest also using either a filter or adjusting the hue to take some of the blue-ish hue out of the picture.

Alright folk, people moving shots is one of the best things you can show, i mean thats what our cars are made more right. So lets get those wheels moving.

We have three types of motion.

1. is called the rig shot. (the hottest shots, most cover mags are taken with)

2. Rolling shot (car to car)

3. Panning shots (motorsport events)

all three create emotion and speed to your pictures.
How do you take rolling shots from car to car lol? Do you have to be going fast? Cuz when i have tried the wheels arent all a blur of spokes, it just looks like the car is stopped in the road......

You have to slow down the shutter speed. Probably nothing higher than 1/80.
