      Let me know what you guys think, opinions, and help would be great!













      Now...for MK4 specific stuff, R32 bumpers coming soon, and possibly a set of 19" Rotiforms.

      In the works of fixing that, what do you guys normally upload to to get the pictures to show up? I tried flickr, guess that doesn't work.

      What camera body are you using? What lenses do you have? What editing software are you using?
      I'd say get a wide angle lens, makes for really good shots, you can be almost touching the wheel with the lens and get the whole car in the shot. Also get either a good fixed lens, they aren't expensive, but when the zoom is constant the images will come out clearer. Also get some decent lens filters, they're about $20-30 each, you'll want an anti-glare one to prevent streaking of lights in your photos, like you can see in some of them. You seem to have a good idea on what makes a good picture, now the big difference comes down to your equipment.

      Good luck in the future

      Not trying to have a typical vortex response but if that corolla was lower it would be on point especially for being a corolla, and 527S are sick who cares about multilug on Japanese cars

      ^^^this. A good wide angle lens should be good for 90% of the shots but a low aperture telephoto lens could really give u the ability if compressing and expanding the perspective(they're crazy expensive though).

      I have a lot of the cars, haven't edited them yet. I have a cannon T2i with a 50mm F/1.8 with a clear filter to cut out light. The light was intentional, I had a alien bee strobe pointed at the camera for the effect. The help is greatly appreciated!
