    So two of my friends and I washed our cars and went out for a little photo shoot.

    I was pretty happy with the results.

    This was my second or third time trying rolling shots... and I think I figured it out. Let me know what you think. Positive or negative, Im just looking for feed back.


    This is My E36 M3

    The subject, composition and framing in all of the shots is great, I prefer the E36 myself. I would have liked to see simpler backdrops, though - say a field or trees or some such. The houses and buildings and whatnot do take away a bit from the impact of the cars themselves.

    But they are great photos - and REALLY great cars. ;)

    Hey Nice shots, I've always wanted to get those type of rolling shots. What setting, lense did you use to achieve that blur?

    Thanks for the nice compliments guys. :mrgreen:

    Its pretty easy actually, set the shutter speed to your speed.

    we were doing 30 mph so 1/30 and I was using my Ultra wide angle. Sigma 10-20mm.

    The rolling shots look great except for the background. Great job keeping the subjects sharp and the background blurry.

    Very nicely done rolling pics, but I will put in another vote on getting a different background. A fence/hedge lined country road will look a lot nicer.
    Also, I am assuming that the rolling shots were from the other BMW not being photographed...... IMO, the perspective on the rolling shots is a little too high...I would recommend someway to either get the camera lower, or shoot from a lower vehicle.

    Not bad, but I would find some more "generic" places to do the photos where the car is in motion... A road with trees bordering it, etc. Technically, a good job though.

    Thanks for the comments guys.

    Thanks,

    I was thinking the same about trying to get a lower perspective. Shooting up at the car... Its easier said than done though. I need someone with a station wagon so that I can leave the rear hatch open and just lay down in the back and shoot away. It would definitely yield some much better shots and different angles for sure.

    Thank you.

    Z4s are great cars.
