Re: Zbums calendar shots

You need more light. Wait untill it's not cloudy and take pics at dawn/dusk for best results.

Photographing black sheetmetal is always a challenge.
The fussier the surroundings, the more the car gets lost in the reflections and the background.
Daytime shots are hard because of the large contrasts.
Direct sunlight between about and hour after sunrise and about an hour before sunset is difficult to use, depending on what latitude you live at.
Nighttime and twilight gives you more control over the car lighting.
If your camera allows extended shutter speeds then half the battle is won. You can run a long exposure and and walk around doing flash fill with a fast recycling handheld flash gun. Digital makes the process a lot easier to gauge the results onsite.

Wow, you all have some very good ideas, too bad I dont have any of the digital, or Camera equipment youre talking about. I look at the pics,, and I think there pretty good. Somebody who knows what there talking about looks at them, as if it might as well been a throw away camera taking the shots. I am going to go out and play more on Wends.

I'm starting to question whether or not he really has a Z. I can just imagine that he has a volvo station wagon that the previous owner took some water paint and wrote "Z" on. Now he thinks hes entitles to give an oppinion.

Makes me think of a Volstang... those things R cool.

i like the night shot best because it brings out the "Z" on your intercooler quite well. i love that IC.
