Tips on your CARS photography:

Photographers, whatever genre they are interested in, love a good car show! The subject i.e. the car, is obviously the key to obtaining a good car photograph; and while any old car might do it, having the opportunity to shoot a classic, vintage or sports car really helps! So this week, keep your eyes peeled for any car shows taking place in the area.

When you’ve found your dream subject, then consider the following: Location and background. As in all photography, the scene in which you wish to place the subject is important. What’s happening in the background? Does it add to or detract from the image you have in mind? Can you blur the background and isolate the car from a distracting background? Lighting is important too. Sunlight low in the sky can help highlight texture and details and make the most of reflective surfaces. And don’t just think about getting the whole car in the picture. Sometimes taking a close-up of interesting features or from unusual angles can result in an image that no one else thought of.

Consider taking a car in motion by panning. This effect involves keeping the car in focus and following it with your camera to blur the background. It’s good fun to practice this! Finally, if photographing real cars is causing you problems, then try taking model cars on a tabletop and take control of every aspect of your scene. Enjoy yourself in week twenty one and give car photography a go!
