Great pics again Magblixt.  Your photography techniques are spot on and very professional. I would be interested in what camera and settings you use if you didn't mind sharing your "secrets". The 3rd one is great with excellent focus and DoF.

Thanks dgcarter!

I use the Canon 20D with a variety of lenses. The third was shot using the 50mm prime. The best and cheapest lens I have ever used, costs less than ?100. The settings used for the third shot were:

Exposure 1/50 at f/1.8
Focal length 50mm
ISO 400

If I were to share one of the most important and easy tricks for a good car shot (no matter the camera type), it would be to shoot from ground level or close to it. A picture that shows some road in between the camera and the car adds depth and makes it more interesting. Try tilting the camera slightly too, adds more life to the picture.

Cheers,
Magnus
