Anyone need a photographer for their cars??

I do it free of charge, just got to meet me or take me to events on the track if you wish, I am more then beginner photographer I shoot everything in manual I still learning but if someone wants some good photos I can do it for no charge I am near the Waco area if you want to hit me up.

Here some photo samples I have.
Weather conditions can make big difference as well. But most cameras like phones and some compact cameras can't take sharp clean photos in low light.

Yep true I have fun taking photos.
Those pretty cool 1slosix Did you do the top one as well?
I have a lens that can blur out the background and make the car really pop out.

Oh this what I use, forgot to post.
I have Pentax K-5 I have yet to get a photo of it with a lens but here's Pentax K-x I use to have.
No Photoshop was done here, this was taken with f/2 prime lens wide open.

Ever taken photos in RAW?
You can do more amazing stuff then with JPEG alone.

yes i shoot raw for photoshoots when i have customers but not when i do personal fun stuff. also if you aren't already look for a good photo editor. you can really go in and touch up certain pics. for example you can liven up a pic a bit if you desire.

sadly since this is web safe jpeg the noise got pulled out but you get the idea

yep...to get the best HDR you'd want at least 3 pics in a different exposure but you can sorta work the effect with one but it can pull too much noise sometimes lol. last thing also...shoot with a darker exposure. easier to lighten up an image and still look good then darken an already bright image and keep it looking good

Yep my camera can do HDR photos I have to put it on tripod to do it in JPEG or take a RAW image and edit it on the camera.

I been doing alot research before I got this camera, these specs are true you can look them up on Google. Difference is the Pentax use Sony imaging technology.

WOW! You must have one of those $5,000 lenses
Thats only downside to Pentax is they don't have full frame cameras or as much lenses as Canon but I don't think I ever can afford one of those big gun lenses lol

nah that's a $400 point and shoot lol. it was raining so my canon rebel didn't come out to play. just gotta really look at specs and you'd be surprised what you can find for less then high end DSLR pricing...sad part it since it's point and shoot with a M mode it doesn't take RAW so i can only use it for private use not for actual shoots

Ah I see, my Pentax K-5 is resistant to rain and dust.
So was the K20D I use to have that took this photo.


Here is a epic image of the K-5 in the rain I found on Google.
Gosh I wish I had that lens that's on it.

Here is a epic edit shot I took of a car 2 years back. Can anyone guess what it's from?
Did not use photoshop I just used Windows photo galley to edit this image you see here.


Sometimes a dirty car can make cool effects for you.
