Hey guys. I was bored today, so I went to practice taking some pics and try a couple of new locations. You guys are probably sick of seeing the car by now. Sorry for whoring it out. Don't comment if you are sick of seein git. :eek: BTW, I just got a new computer, and I don't know how well I calibrated my display. If the pics are too bright or too dark, let me know. Thanks.







It was getting kind of dark.

What lens are you using? A friend just gave me a Canon D60 but I've got a lot to learn. As always, beautiful pics man.

What rollbar is that? Why do I have to ask you? It's because you haven't parked your car along with a list of modifications in the Garage!

I love your car. I don't think you've whored it out too much yet.

but I still despise you for taking sweet pics. :mrgreen:

Pictures look sick as always.

They look perfect on my LCD at 6500k. Which calibration are you using? I've been thinking of doing it on my monitor for awhile. Use to do it hardcore with the monitor set super soft and grey with hood shades working in the dark at my old job.

I like the old license plate... did the previous owner have it or have you owned the roadster since then?

Lovely as always... I see the urban look coming together with the Hoodride on the trunk. It does work well with the lack of a finish panel and the older license plate.

Is that a bullet-hole sticker on your hood or is that just a stupid guess?

Thanks always for sharing, you know you are a pic whore but everyone on this site would pay for teh sex in your pictures. :D

HOODRIDE! Seriously awesome as always Peter. What computer did you get? A 24" iMac? :D

Oh, and you still need spacers for the rear wheels. :D





edit: In my opinion, Peter, photo #1, and #3 are the weakest of the lot. #1 being the stronger of the weaker ones.

#1, the angle/height of the camera to the car doesn't make your car look badass as much as it should. I always think photography like I do pornography; you're suppose to make your whore look better than it does in real life. And believe me, your car looks REALLY good in real life. And with the use of artistic license, you can do whatever you want/can to make your car look even better. I know you're a naturalist when it comes to photography (no real post production), but maybe you should consider trying some post production. Oh, #1 also suffers from a case of oversaturation, IMHO.

#3, just a generic shot of a front of a car. You really could've gotten more creative there. Personally, center compositions don't tickle my pants as much as it should.

I don't want to come across bad, but Peter, I respect you, and I want you to become a better artist than you already are. Car photography can get really boring really quick. Do like you're doing with your Roadster, take inspirations from somewhere else.

And yes Peter, I am telling you to do a Roadster installation. :p

Nice pics! Car is sex all over.....

Trunklid looks moldy though- That's the only thing I would fix. Car looks amazingly good without the rear finisher panel too ...... I think you just started a new trend ;);)

Damn, Linh. Slamed the pic enough?! Hehe, just kidding. I got a 20" iMac, nott baller enough for the 24" one. Now I look back at it, I think #1 was a bit saturated as well. I actually layer a copy of over staurated red onto the original, trying to make the red pop. But gone a little over board, I guess. I do have a couple more version of that one in different finishes.

Jesse, I am using the calibrating tool on the iMac. It looks good on my screen, but at work we have iMac too, and pictures show up darker.

Thanks for the comments, guys. I would love to shoot fellow member's car if you guys are around in my area. Just let me know.
