    A buddy and I met at a local car show and had some fun. Lighting was tough, but we got a few good ones.

    Close, a Pinto. LOL. What a great reincarnation huh?
    And thanks.
     
  13. Great car shots. When I go to car shows I usually go for artsy shots because it is sometimes impossible to get whole car shots. Where in SD was the show?
    Also what lens do you seem to use most?

    The shoot was in the town of El Cajon.
    I really switch back and forth between the 2 lenses listed in my sig. Although the majority of these shots was taken with the 18-55mm.
     
  15. Not bad for a first car show shoot. That's normally what I like to shoot :D. Your photos are good, only thing I'd suggest is when taking photos of cars, you want to get on the opposite side of the shadow the car leaves. The photo comes out much better.

    Thanks for that feedback regarding the shadows. I tried setting up like that on a couple shots and the sun was so low, my shadow was in the shot. I'll have to work on that some more. I'm doing another one this weekend and it's around the same time of day, so I'll work on that.
