Default Picture Submission Thread

We are in the process of creating a MT Calendar

PLEASE KEEP IT TO NO DISCUSSION, PICTURE SUBMISSIONS ONLY

YOU MAY SUBMIT ONE PHOTO A MONTH

This is the picture submission ONLY thread voting will start Feb 1st and continue thru 20th(On a voting thread). At the 20th we will take the top 10 photos and do a poll until the end of the month. Please number your photos accordingly. #1 #2 #3 etc... Any questions please refer to the MT calendar thread above.

Each month (Feb to July), One photo will be taken from the 1st to the 20th. On the 21st, we will narrow it down to 10 photos and then have a poll the 21st thru the end of the month.top two will take it.no homo

^that is an awesome idea so feel free to post up interior, engine, etc... MAKE SURE THE PHOTOS THAT YOU POST MATCH THE CAR YOU POSTED


If your looking for tips for photographing your hwip

1-2 hours while/after the sun rises and 1-2 before/while the sun sets is ideal for proper lighting. Overcast days are awesome; the darker the shadow of your body the harder the light is; hard light=bad; no shadow=**** as you have soft light. Soft light will pull highlights nicely; hard light will give you lots of glares, reflections, etc... Dont be afraid to get close.

Basics of photographing cars

I need quality pictures, I dont want no pulled into my driveway and took this bullshit. This means proper location locations, proper composition etc. Your photo will be rejected if it does not have the correct exposure, if it is out of focus, has bad composition, and/or bad location.
For those who arent reading the link up above here is probably the biggest rule in taking photos.
Rule of thirds

You never want to center your subject there are very few exceptions to this rule.
Try and place your subject in any of those boxes but the center.
Ex:

Also a very common mistake is alot of people think a subject like this is centered:

imagine the grid I gave up above... it is in fact not in the centered.

Good- contrast is good, image is sharp, not washed out, nothing distracting


Bad-Sky is washed out, reflections in the lens by tail lights, side of car is washed out, hazard lights (yellow) too distracing


Good- Subject in focus and is easy to see, color is good, crisp


Bad- Tons of grain (spots), never have the subject and the sun in front of you


Good-


Not so good-


Hotness-


Notness

That should be enough info to get some pretty good photos and dont think just because you own a point and shoot you cant take good photos. If you have proper location, proper lighting(ambient light)(aka natural light), use rule of thirds...etc you may come up with better photos than people who own dlsr's (fancyish cameras).
