nice car

i like your effort for the pics, however if i may suggest using a fill-in flash to get rid of those dark spots on your car, most of cameras have this feature, basically the flash fires shortly after you press the shutter button filling in the dark spots so your car stands out better. also try to avoid harsh objects in your pics like that pole in the middle of the parking garage , it kinda disturbs the flow of the picture.

i got the spoiler in the Thai GB that etimago started a while back. it's OEM Toyota. just the Vios version. heh.

are you talking about the one where i'm actually in the garage? i don't really like that one, but since i was there, i had to have one where i was actually in the garage.

it was pretty bright outside, so i don't think a fill-flash would have had a big affect. it would have tho in the garage. there were a bunch of pics i excluded because it was too dark. it was the first time i used this camera, so i had no clue how to use it. hahaha.

an SLR wouldnt make the difference, thats why i told you about fill in flash, the dark side of the car would be nicely illuminated and the rest would stay the same. try it someday. you could try playing with the metering settings but in the end fill in works good.

really? even on a very bright day like that? the natural sunlight won't drown out the fill-flash? worth a try. i do it on my next photoshoot, when ever that may be (and when i figure out everything about my friend's digi-cam).

as long as you close enough to the car the fill in flash will illuminate the dark spots , just make sure the sun is not at your back.

i always thought that the sun should be on your back so that the object you're taking a picture of is illuminated?

If its right at your back the car's lines and color will be washed out and flat. It will be hard to not overexpose and you'll get more hot spots where the light is basically shining directly off of the paint into the lens. Off to one side or the other will allow you to pick up on the shape/lines and get rid of some of the glare. Fill-flash is especially usefull if the light is behind the subject and/or its a bright day. It won't take much light from the flash to catch and highlight off of the cars paint. Depending on how strong your flash is will dictate how far away you can be and get the desired effect. I would use a tripod as well, even with plenty of light. Depending on how limited your exposure range is, some camera shake, indescernable to you, may be effecting clarity/sharpness.
Best of luck, and nice car.

thats a great explantion blueskana gave you, if the sun is behind you then there is no need for fill in flash.also what you could try put a polarizing filter on your lens and you will be surprised at the awsome effects.if you dont have a filter use your sunglasses in front of the lens

hahaha, i only have a table top tripod. so that's why i switched from using that to just holding it. yeah, it's impossible to have a clear cut shot when you're holding the camera. hmmm, i think i'll play around with the location of the sun on my next photoshoot. thanks for the pointers and comments.

hahaha, the lens on my friend's camera is not a telescopic lens. the filter must be a stick on and pretty small in diameter. hahaha. but yeah, i played around with photo/lens filters when i had photo class back in the day.

Dude, next time you go, text/call me (I think I PM'd you my number before). I wanna practice shooting, and you can play with my SLR/tripod ;p I especially wanna try taking night shots.

I see you got the spoiler installed. It really looks awesome.
