    hi, i just recently purchased a nikon d3000. i been reading up on slrs and how to take pictures with it, and was wondering what is the best technique to go and shoot cars. It will be mostly of them standing still pretty much like this, 1999 Mitsubishi Eclipse GST by *THood84 on deviantART,thats the style im going for until i learn more and can take rolling shots, night shots, etc. Was also wondering how much of it is photoshopped or any other editing program is involved in that picture looking that way... i would appreciate your help :D

    When whooting cars, dont stand at regular heigh and take the picture. Get down low or even from above looking down. A CP (circular polarized) filter helps with the glare and the paint and glass. Take your pictures in the morning or right before the sun goes away. Also if the car is angled turn the wheel to face you.

    Google will help to. Lost of tuturials on how to shoot cars can be found by searching.

    Thanks for the links! I will definitely be keeping this all in mind next time I try car photo shoots (which is common for us, since DH buys and sells cars a lot)! :)
