post-15452-0-39090500-1492524870_thumb.jpgI've always liked this view (slightly different than above).  While photography is not really my thing, I've always found that the background can really make or break any image in terms of making it 'pop'.  So, while you may find the perfect position for the vehicles, don't overlook the background. :thumbsup:

I'd find a clean background free of clutter, distractions etc.  One of the best ways to showcase the cars is using a setup like the image above.  You want to show as much as the cars as possible.

 

What type of camera are you using?

For the background, choose something that compliments the car(s) in its "native" format. Think a Jeep on a dirt road...or a Prius by an electric substation ;).

 

Watch for anything "growing" out of the car, like light poles.

 

Backgrounds can also make it appear the car is split in half, so be careful. Curbs are an example if the pic is taken at the right (read: wrong) angle.

 

Good lighting is important, with pics at sunrise and sunset providing especially nice effects.

 

Pics taken from ground level looking up at the car gives a pretty sweet result. Different than the usual "looking straight at the car" picture.

 

Check out manufacturer websites for some other ideas. They have pros take them...and we buy the cars as a result!

 

Looking forward to your results (hint, hint!).

Sorry to hear that, Seth. Just please tell me these posts aren't correlated...

 

Oh I will def post the pics. What good are pics if you can't share them :) I think I have a perfect spot, but it may have a no trespassing sign. If it does then its a no go.

  

Lol got into a little fender bender just waiting to get the car back.

Looking forward to the pics. Think of this as another opportunity to paint correct the car once back from the shop. Also a good time for a clear bra, if you were ever considering one.

Any more, you're down to a 50/50 chance of getting anywhere alive.  People just don't pay attention when they drive. I wish they'd ban cell phones all together in the car.

I completely agree!!

 

I'm not your typical 14 year old lol. How many 14 year old detailers do you know?

I think partly cloudy days are the best for American pony or muscle cars. Something about the unstable sky makes the cars more badass. If you can catch clouds reflected in the paint... holy crap that's car pron right there.

 

A day like this is perfect. Too bad my car isn't in this pic... jus a viper, a vette... some Ferrari
