Some new work here! I have to give a huge thanks to the owner of this car @staci_e46 for giving me the chance to shoot his car. Unfortunately, partway through the shoot, his car had a cooling issue and I wasn't able to get all the shots we wanted. Still though, I'm thrilled with how the shots we DID get, came out. I spent as long as possible working with the owner, making sure that what I was producing he was happy with. I'm grateful that we were able to make the shots work, and I am absolutely thrilled that the owner is happy with how the shots came out. Hopefully as more work gets done to the car, I will have another chance at a photo shoot with the car.

Another revisit being done here with the DSLR. Pennsylvania is surprisingly home to many parks. It was certainly difficult to find our way to this spot. Took us around four wrongs turns before we finally found the spot we were actually looking for. I'm extremely happy with how all of these shots came out. Working with a Tanzanite Blue color is always fun because it's very vibrant when it comes to reflections. With my CPL missing i have to work hard to make sure that I'm not caught in any reflections, though I did fail on one with the Miata somewhat peeking in (The place was crowded, really didn't have a spot to hide the Miata). In the end I'm very happy that I was able to revisit this stunning car. Definitely improved the shots of this car using a proper body and lens'.

Little revisit to this car now that I'm with my DSLR. It was honestly pretty difficult to get any good shots as it's a dark color (Carbon Black) and there wasn't much light (Still waiting on my prime lens with a bigger aperture). So unfortunately I only had front shots that I could use. But still, I'm learning and maybe in the future I would have been able to figure out how to use the shots that really were just too dark (That prime lens is an f / 1.8 50mm). I'm still proud of these shots regardless. The rainbow just happened to turn up as I was thinking of a better angle. It isn't the most present rainbow, but it does add a nice touch to the photo. Hopefully in the future I can add a new shoot of this car with either some rollers or panned shots. It's pretty hard to get those in the area I live, so a trip out to Pennsylvania is in order soon.

Alright so first I want to note the "(Practice Shoot)" text in the title. Also I want to note the sudden increase in picture quality. No I have not paid somebody off, I've picked up a new camera. That's why I posted this as a practice shoot. I spent time in my mall's parking garage playing around with the new DSLR, seeing what I liked and what I thought I could work with. The iPhone may still make rare appearances, but from now on it will mostly be the new DSLR. I'm extremely proud of myself for working up to being able to have this camera. I'm also very happy this car is still interesting enough that I can just sit and practice with it for the time being. All in all, I can't wait to see what the future holds. Life has a way of making very sudden and unexpected turns.

2007 Mazda Miata (NC) Grass Shoot

Okay listen, I know that it says grass shoot. I know that two shots are from the loading docks. I know that these are discrepancies. We all make mistakes. I'm very happy that I was able to bring out the Miata for a shoot out on a grass field and especially to the loading docks. You know, until somebody says something and I can't shoot there anymore. But for now, I love these loading docks. I also love this Miata!

This is a new ground for me. I never photograph "trucks" let alone a Jeep (never been a huge fan of Jeep) but this one I'm okay with. Good friend of mine owns this Jeep. After his 3 series yesterday, he wanted to go back out for more with his Jeep. Aside from the fact half the locations involved gravel so I was doing donuts in the Miata, his Jeep turned out to be very fun to work with because of all the angles that I could get. The best part is each angle shows a completely different part of the truck. I'm especially liking the two desaturation edits in this upload (I'm falling in love with desaturation somebody help me). I'm also really liking those loading docks, but who knows how long it will be until the owners notice and I have to go find a new set of semi-abandoned loading docks. All in all, still wouldn't really own one, but I would definitely go off-roading in one, and it's pretty fun to be a tiny Miata next to this giant lifted Jeep.

Unless I decide to do anything else with my car, this will be the last shoot of it as I have finished the exterior for a long time to focus on my Miata. I went a little edit heavy with one or two photos. Not sure why, just felt like it would be a fun difference from my normal pictures. The rear shot I took perfectly shows off the SuperSprint exhaust system I have on the car, as you can see it running underneath. The last edit was a last second ideas to see if I could make the car look like it was sketched by graphite, and I like the results of it. I honestly still do not think I will ever love a car as much as I love this car and its screaming four cylinder (anybody who has heard it, knows I'm serious. It screams.) engine. I'm also running flares now obviously and some Enkei Compe 15x8 wheels with bolt in spacers to adapt the bolt pattern. For now WickdBlu is done and I can happily say that I have loved every second of building it. Now to enjoy it all.

Alright we have my coworker's car here again for another shoot. I actually drove out to New Jersey just for this. Originally he didn't want to do anything but after seeing the F80 picture I posted, he made me come out to Jersey. I had a lot of fun with this shoot. Mainly because his car has a big contrast from the bricks of the school to his car color. There were pictures at loading docks too but I only really liked a couple of this pictures. There is a desaturation picture in this shoot where I resaturated his fog lights and the badges and I think that edit is one of the best ones of the shoot. In that last photo you can also see just how much negative camber his car has which I think is pretty funny.
