just got my new canon g5 like 2 nights ago. seems like an awesome camera that i cant used to its full potential because im a total photography noob. anyways can any of you guys recommend some websites with photography tips like how to set aperture, iso, shutterspeed, white balance etc for night shots or normal shots perhaps. here are my first few pics... and i kno they suck but i hope to get better! its not my car btw.

I've just started to photograph, lighting is a major. Around sundown is the perfect time to take pictures. And don't take ALL your pictures standing. Get down, get dirty, croach.

yea i used a mini tripod for those m3 pics. its about like 4 inches off the ground. it was like about an hour or 2 past sundown so i was just testing how my pics would look at night with the default nightmode settings.

awesome M3, why are the fog lights ductaped over?

nice car!

nice shots smile.gif look good smile.gif id love to see more smile.gif
intence
i have no idea... its my neighbors m3. its red so i justed wanted to see how photogenic it is. heres some more shots. these are by no means good. i still have no idea how to set the iso, aperture, shutter speed for specific situations. i still dont understand how some people's pictures are so sharp.

Wow, intence, you have a white new-look impreza sedan? User's rides! I love white WRXs thumbs_up.gif

I like the WRX much more than the M Coupe. That M coupe desperately needs to have an exterior detail job. The paint is worse than on my 95 Aurora.

For a not-new black car, I think it looks pretty good.

That and I love M coupes! Yay for the Z3! Boo BMW for making the awful Z4 to replace it!
White RSX
I love the M-Coupe, I not the Z3.

M-Coupe... Nice pictures. thumbs_up.gif
