    New guy from NH - Special interest in Automotive Photography

    Hello all,

    My name is Kevin. I have always had an interest in photography and an enormous interest in automotive. One of my good friends is quite the photographer and started his own business. It was only a matter of time before I got the bug

    He convinced me to pick up an used Nikon D60 for $240 in perfect condition. Overall, I have a lot to learn and hope to learn quickly from him as well as reading. I know I need a polarizing filter and a tripod as my first investment.

    Anyways, I thought I'd show off my pride and joy, my 2003 SVT Cobra. Here are 3 photos from "Matt Musto Photography" This is NOT my work and is an example of Matt's awesome work...

    So far I have only had 1 opportunity to use my camera. I realize I had the ISO set too high and they were grainy. Probably because it wasn't super bright and I didn't have a tripod. I have Lightroom 5 and its pretty overwhelming to a complete novice, but I know ill get it. Anyways, here were my FIRST ever photographs

    #1 needs light at the front
    #2 posed on a down-hill slope - looks like a flat tire - Doesn't need quite so much landscape
    #3 better, but needs light on the near side
    #4 pretty good, but you caught some odd reflections
    #5 distracting background
    #6 distracting background and you caught the corner of another bumper

    Keep it up!
