How to Photograph Cars

Intro: How to Photograph Cars

For my first instructible, I decided to post one on a hobby of mine. Of course, I'm not the best (or close), but it's fun anyway.

Step 1: Locate a Car

Find some beautiful work of automotive art. Of course, beautiful cars may be rare depending on where you live. Heh.

Step 2: Assume the Position

Positioning is important, especially if you have a brightly colored phone case that might be reflected in the vehicle. Decide what angle you want to take a picture from, and get into the position that allows you to capture the machine.

Step 3: Snap Some Pics!

Take some photos of whatever beastly monster you've managed to find!

Step 4: Enjoy!

Now you can show all of your car-brained friends what you saw on the road, or just enjoy them in private and keep them aaaallllll to yourself.

    When photographing autos, strike a pose. Not the car, you. change the angle, adjust your lens position. What's in your background is the difference between a snap shot and a keeper. Lighting creates mood. Angles creates story. All of these are my work. Direction is good; ask yourself what do you want to convey to your audience when you click that button.
