    Here are a few truck pictures with my brother who is a senior. I have not had time to edit them yet so, therefore, none are edited lol. If you have any good ideas with what to do with them let me know! Thanks for all your comments!!

    The seem pretty underexposed to me. They all have pretty flat boring lighting, maybe wasn't the best day for the shoot. The pictures are definitely more about the truck than about him, which may have been just what he wanted. Not a fan of the exhaust plume in the first picture.

    Overcast skys wont blow out as easy as you think they will
    Turn off your evaluative metering and meter the subject, bring down your shutter speed to control blow out. You'll find a happy medium that you can easily PP.

    Yes, the shoot was about the truck more than the boy. The smoke was a must as he is a full 102% country boy. The dark lighting was something he wanted, which still needs a little bit of lightening, but he wanted it for the tough look and I think we acheived that. Thanks for all your comments!!

    i can only see 1 and 2 for some reason.

    the 2 i can see are very underexposed, and unfortunately, im not getting the 'tough' look you were going for here.
    if these were shot in raw you could add some exposure and maybe save them.

    i tmight look cool if you are able to brighten it up, maybe burn the sky a little bit and make those dark clouds really pop...that might add some of the tough image you were gonig for.

    post results...id like to see the finals of these. :D

    i dont mean to sound harsh, but there is NO detail in the truck whatsoever (in the first 2 anyway)

    That's not really dark lighting, just underexposure.

    I did a quick edit. Hope you don't mind. I think this has the dark and tough look you wanted with the such a global underexposure.

    MikeMicki, you're blur border blurred half of the person. I would think that's to be avoided.

    These are not properly exposed. They are underexposed by about 2 stops.
