I really like the way these shots turned out. I've found this blue Viper to be difficult to photgraph well. But bhings seemed to hook up just right this time from the lighting to the PhotoShop'ping.

I'm actually experimenting more with lighting techniques in order to capture the lines of the cars better. By position the light in certain ways, shadows are created which I hope to bring those lines out.

Really awesome pics, StygianMax!

What kind of camera do you use?
Thanks kak. :cheers I have a Canon S30 that's got 3.2Mpix. It can take pictures either in fully automatic mode or manual. I used to take most of my pictures in "M" mode where I can select both apeture size AND shutter exposure time. With vegasracer's recommendation, I've recently tried the "Av" mode (only sets aperture size) and the camera decides how long the exposure should be. I've found the results to be much better.

I really like the pictures you took of your Audi R8s! What camera did you use to take those?

I'm using a Fujifilm Finepix S602 to my pictures. I'm very satisfied with that camera. It have all the automatic you need (if you want to use it) and you can do anything manual too. I mostly use the "A"-setting, when you choose the "aperture size" and the camera choose the shutter speed for you.

The 602S have macro and super macro. The limit on the first one is 10 cm and with the super macro you can take pictures down to 1 cm from the object!

That's truly wonderful that your camera has a super macro mode!! I think my closest range I can shoot from is around 15cm (?). Keep up the great photography & I hope to see you post more of your pictures here! :cheers :cheers

I really love the super macro-mode on my camera! The depthfocus(?) become very poor/bad with the super macro-mode.. .but what the heck! ;)

Awesome pics Felix! You really captured the color of this Viper well, which can be difficult! The last shot is my favorite! :cool1
