Don't we all have one or two of those models that always look good on camera? And there's always some that look terrible in photos.

I love taking out my 1:12 PMA Mac, which is why it's always in my sig. Also, my AUTOart Callaway C12 in yellow and my 1:18 Zonda haven't been in a bad shot. Any high detail model like AAs always appear great in shots. Proportion, high off the ground and great attention to detail always make models look like the real deal. :nicejob

On the other hand, I have a tough time taking good photos of some of my HWs and Bburagos. They look good to the eye but the camera just exposes faults. :confused

What are yours?

:cheers

For me it's the W125. It always comes out good. I think it's because of the tone of the silver paint and the setup I use to shoot the pics.

I've always enjoy photographing red cars, but blue OTOH, is my kryptonite. For the life of me, I couldn't photograph anything blue to save my own neck! :nutkick <-- Or nuts.

*56K warning*


This blue on this Porsche miraculously came out decent... Lucky shot. :happy

I have a few including the AUTOart Nissan 350Z, the AUTOart BMW Z8, and the BSG Ford GT Concept.

But the most photogenic car in my collection has to be the Lamborghini Murcielago, and not because I have 4 of them either :giggle It just looks great from any angle!

I think the UT Porsche 993s look great under the light, especially the GT2.





However my favorite would be the Kyosho Mazda RX7...Cant get enough of those beautiful curves! :cool

For me anything with an over-abundance of chrome provides difficulty...

As for my decent shots, I will never be as good at photography as many of you, but I like the pictures of the sleek and colorful racers by most brands. I am especially fond of the classic racers....
