Ok,
this is a really basic walkthrough for taking a static front 3/4 shot of a car, which is far more difficult than it sounds. I'm just trying to answer some of the questions i get emailed quite frequently. There are also some useful tips that apply to all sorts of car photos.

Without further ado:

the tutorial

Matt

ps. Please let me know if its any good, it took me a couple of hours!

As I said in the mail I sent you, thank you so much for the time you spent on this tutorial.

You're da man who's not afraid of:

- Showing your rig.
- Explain and teach how you do things.

Sometimes I feel photography is a secret society, where everyone is afraid of sharing experiencies and insights on how things are done. You go against that thought. The thought that if anyone shares information you might get unemployed.

I could do a side-by-side shoot with you right now, and I'll bet 50 bucks with anyone, your shots would excel mine everytime.

It's not the knowledge, it's how you put it to work.

Very nice. My dumbass has been "into" photography for a few years now, and hadn't even thought of the sketches or getting the character of the car. Show's how much I know...
