G8 Photog practice in prep for Goat Run!

Took a little time to wash the car as I was super bored. I stepped back from my little detail and really took a moment to appreciate how good these cars look. With that in mind I took a little trip around the neighbor hood and snapped up a few pics. I really been slacking on learning the art of photography so this was a chance to get back in the swing of things before Goat Run.

Todd where are you at man! A brotha can use a hand here lol. These damn Digital SLR's are complicated!

The third to last one is just amazing! I love the smooth tone and contrast of it as a whole. Good job!

Wink Pics are sweet but....

Dude, awesome pics...only complaint is turn off your headlights! Either put your parking lights on (just the orange ones) or flip your headlight switch to the left and back once to turn them off altogether.

Another good look is the parking lights and the fogs (flip once to right and pull out).

Point taken. In all these pics I was just drving down the street, jumped out the car and snapped a photo and jumped back in and went about my way. I need to spend more time thinking about the little things like that.

I actually really like the lights being on in pics, especially when your car has HIDs.

Here are a couple shots I took after I had the roof painted but they aren't anything to write home about. They do show the roof quite nicely though...








It is hard to take a good photo because my roof shines like glass and really reflects super hard. I have taken great care to make sure my car doesn't get any paint swirls, and that black roof hits hard in the light. At night time it is awesome.
