He's been here for over 4 years, and has a 1k+ posts. I think he knows what kind of cars are popular here. I believe he was asking for criticism on his photog skills, not whether or not we like the car.

Astro. Not bad at all. A couple of them are really nice. Most are pretty good. If your an amateur good work. If your a pro, I hope you don't charge too much.

Thanks, I am an amateur for sure. I do charge gas money usually but that's it (because most cars I shoot are an hour ad a half away and my time is sorta valued to me)

I think it is a blog about cars. Just googled it and that seems to be the consensus. It also isn't defined on ud so...

So when you say composition sucks dick you mean I didn't adhere to the "rule" of thirds? Camera's a D5000 with a 50 prime and a 18-55

The rule of thirds and all those fancy conventions can suck on my dangling down dong. Do you consider yourself an artist? I mean, you do have a Flickr so that's like half the battle, right?

Not one of your shots made me think. I'm sorry, I don't have anything to offer other than you hit pretty much every cliche exterior shot possible.

If you're an author, I hope you don't get paid for your work.

It is a car, there is not too much you can do without getting really artsy which would and up taking away from the car imo. The focus of the shots is the car, the guy did suspension and wheels to his car and the shots are to done in a way to focus on that. Here is one from another shoot I did of a white TL, I wanted to shoot the car in a way that would display the lines of the car well. I can guarantee this angle has been done before also...kinda like every movie plot has been done before.



Or is this more your thing?

I don't know crap about photography, but they look great to me.

All these "Illest" stickers make me want to look for a "Healthiest" sticker.

One day I'll scan all of my prints and host them somewhere. Real men use film.

#9 needs the pole removed...it's horrid on the eye.

#11 needs less DOF/more area in focus. Might be better if the rear tire AND wheel were in focus. To me, the object in focus (the farmost part of the lip) is too narrow and distracting...I can't focus on the picture.

But what do i know, I'm not some hotshot picturetakerperson. Composition and quality are pretty good IMHO on the rest (although the subject is a bit bland to my personal taste).






Does anyone else think Pusha's lame **** talking is getting old? At least Hussie was creative with his keyboard vomit...and it was witty.

Why must you be such a tool. You try to be like Hustler, but you fail. You used to not be this way, what happened?

I think most of them look pretty nice Astro. For shots focusing on the car, it's hard to really do much with them, especially with limited locations and lighting. I think you did a good job overall. Of course there is always improvement, even with very experienced photographers/artists.
