not bad but I think the first 2 could use a bit more contrast.
That Bentley looks sick!

edit: and perhaps a High Pass filter. Yes, I tried it out biggrin.gif

Can't say I'm a huge fan of these. Composition leaves a lot to be desired on all the pictures. #2 seems a little soft.

How tall is he? He seems cramped in the red Chevy.

#4 The hot spot on the Escalade is distracting me, maybe clone that out.

wow, he wore sweatpants for the shoot?!

Photos look good, I think you did well with what you were given. Out of curiosity, how much time did you spend on location?

Thanks Jacob, we were there shooting for maybe an hour and 15 minutes before he had to go.

Flat where though? In the first portrait I think theres a good range from highlights to shadows.

I guessed an hour, pretty close. You got some good variety for the limited time.

Thanks, most of my shoots are done in very limited time. I've learned to adjust and just roll with it. Its more fun that way. Cant get flustered when stuff doesnt go your way.

Donk took on a generalized definition to include most cars fitting that look. But Donk really refers to the 1971-1976 Chevrolet Impala (and Caprice) It refers to that specific model. Same way E46 refers to specific Bmw 3series models.

but to answer Seagram's original question, yes that style is very popular in the Southern United States.
