    Default Photo Help

    Went out today to try out my new camera... A finepix S1500. I know the car isn't up to much, did start modifying it but then realised I wanted to ****** off to aus for a couple of months so had to undo everything

    Just after some tips for photographing cars really. Took quite a few photos, all of which were pretty pants. This is the best of a bad bunch really... I'm struggling with lighting in general.

    Any tips are greatly appreciated.

    its no doubt all trial and error on photograhy
    its a nice photo taken there - did you use photo stitch?? to widen it??

    the advantage of digital is that you can take lots and lots and learn from your mistakes - but Ed, Fender guitar and Duncan will be able to impart lots of knowledge do a search on their posts - lots to learn from them

    I cropped and titled the photo quite a bit in an attempt to frame it a bit better...

    I'll have a look for those guys. Will go out again tomorrow to have another go, hopefully in better light.

    1 tip is use the rule of thirds (applys to most subject).

    Place the main point of interest (in this case the car) at where the thirds of the frame cross.

    hope u dont mind, ive took ure pic to better show u what i mean.

    yeah exactly, it just makes the image a bit more visually appealing.

    that pic is a good one, its got some good leading lines (the fence onthe right, drawing ure eye into the pic, and the car also leadin ure eye in from the other side)
