First Car Pic I've done EVER! Comments and Critique Welcomed
I like it. I am not sure about the crop though.
Looks good. I like the framing and the dark style, its mature, sleek, and exotic looking.
What lighting did you use for this?
Softbox accross and octabox both to right and left of car. You can see the reflections of each in the mirrors...
I like the dark look you used..and the framings.
do you think it's cropped a little too close? it seems to me at least
nice shot. is it just me or does this look a little noisy
I like it, have you thought about lighting th inside of the car ? take a look at this guy's website one of the worlds top car photographers
That's an excellent shot, the lighting is almost perfect for the outside of the car (a touch too much on the right side), and I think it's pretty outstanding if it's a first try! I have a co-worker that pays for his gear taking auto pics for a car warranty company and he'd be rather impressed with this.
I like gsgary's idea of a light (omni?) in the car adding some interior detail. You could even hunt down an image of the car from the same perspective and photoshop the interior into this image to see if it's worth trying.
Heck, you might even want a slight glow under the car or just behind the intercooler to highlight that feature?
I would personally prefer not to have the inside lit. I wanted it to look sleek and dark, and in my opinion lighting the inside would take that look away completely. Plus the inside of a 350z with all the parts would have ruined the symmetry and would have taken away from the over look in my opinion. I appreciate everything guys I think it is a little noisy as I combined 3 different exposures of the same RAW image. I don't have a tripod currently so I was not able to take different exposures with the exact same composition.
It says your photos are OK to edit, so I did a quick crop in Photoshop. I think it adds more drama to the shot by emphasizing the low profile of the car created by having the doors open.
