    besides keeping your WB in check, you seem to be on the right track

    i'm not at the point where i can properly customize the WB, so most of the time i just choose "auto". in this case, i think i was using the "flourescent" setting.

    mmmmmm skyline
    mmmmmm wrxs

    i agree with the WB but it looks like you snuffed that issue after the second shot.
    if you have the raws, you can alter the temp easily.

    nice shots.

    Nice cars and great start. Car photos are not the easiest things in life and You have to try hard some times to make it work... Take as many pictures as you can and when you are looking in all the magazines look at the Photography in a new way. See what catches your eye and what the "big dogs" are doing that get them published. Try to reproduce that and once you feel you can start to work in your own ideas and ways to make your photos special!

    I think did a pretty good job and have a great starting point!

    The car images mostly look like snapshots to me.

    I really like the image of the puppy...one of the nicer pet photos I've seen in awhile.
    Getting the white balance right isn't hard to do, especially if you're shooting in RAW. You could use a white balance card (18% grey card like the WhiBal or SpyderCUBE) or use a white balance lens cap or filter (like The White Balance Lens Cap or Expodisc) to set the custom white balance in camera.

    yep, that's at the kk in burbank. we meet out there every friday night. if you'd like to come out, i'm sure it would be a great photographic opportunity.

    someone was trying to explain the difference between shooting RAW and shooting in JPEG and i didn't get it. i need to read more and figure it out.

    im glad your WB worked out after the second shot. car shots are much more interesting when taken from low stance. right now they just look like snapshots and not very interesting.
