it is very easy to take car picture. But the problem is that it
is just a picture. If you want to get a photo with full emotional atmosphere, here are some suggestions and tips for your reference.
Consider the following questions before shooting,
It is your own car or someone else? If it is your own
cars, that’s fine. You can choose the shooting time, place and manner. Otherwise, you have to discuss the time, place and others.
Shooting time? When you want to take pictures, it is necessary to think of the prime time (morning and evening). It is the best time. There will be a very good tone on the picture. The sun raising and failing can bring change color. But the shooting time is not important if you use artificial light shooting, you should remember that natural light will still affect the photo quality.
How about the overall effect? I like some dirty, low-key effects, so be prepared to point the HDR. You can pursue a completely different feeling, such as dynamic, a large aperture, flash and a driver are needed.
Consider the location
Multi-storey park – in my experience, the multi-storey car park is very suitable for the brightly colored cars. Shooting indoors (not weather), relying on artificial light cloth, you can make full use of texture, angles and shadows to shape the overall effect of the photo. Remember to either early or late to go in order to avoid the peak period. I usually choose to Sunday 8:00 am, to find a layer of other vehicles. Good effect in the low shot from a distance, can produce great depth of field effect. The use of artificial light cloth to remember to adjust the white balance, do not use the AWB (Auto White Balance).
I used the camera comes with software 3 photos into a 16bit TIFF files, and then into Photomatix processing. Arrange pictures, but if you use a tripod to shoot you do not need to do this step,
