    These were taken at the UMass Amherst Car Show yesterday. First time shooting cars. Lighting was harsh, it was around 1pm. c&c if you wish. Thanks for looking.

    Honestly I would have to say they are just snapshots. Flash wasn't fired on any of them (exp under the hood), I probably would have used a CP to reduce the reflections you see in the paint/tail lights. It's a car show, so I know it was pretty busy around there and hard to get just the car in any pictures, but the people are not helping focus on the vehicle.

    On a positive note...Whatever that is in 5, I like. Not that the GTR is bad either!

    Yeah, I'm dying to pick up a flash at some point, I feel like I would get a lot of use out of it.

    5 is a Mercedes Benz SLR. $495k if you want one :lol:

    Yes. I am way more into older cars and this was mostly new/tuners but I had never seen a GT-R in person so I made sure to get some nice ones of it.

    I really like shooting cars. I really like to feature what ever made the model different from the rest like body lines, lights, and or mods. The GTR tail lights are a good angle. If you move to the left to cover the tail of the GTR more the photo would look more even.

    From my small amount of experience, I would in my opinion have lit it up better or used a reflector to make the car pop. The attention to the back of the GTR is distracted by the people around it. Maybe blur them out...

    Good start.

    I just took a look at the bumper of the GTR. Theres people in the paint reflections. This is a problem that I have too when I shot at the last car show. Ive seen these white semi transparent discs that you can hold with a hand or prop up and it will take away the reflection of the people walking by.
