A close friend asked me to shoot one of his cars this evening.

Great shots. Great subject, although the sharp reflections from the surroundings don't work for me as they conflict too heavily with the lines of the vehicle, so best image IMO is the low rear quarter view.
Last image of an otherwise perfect subject only spoilt by the wheel nuts

Point taken regarding reflections. My friend wanted to shoot the car in front of this particular building. As you can see it's almost completely glass. A later time of shooting would've helped a little i'm sure. He was going out last night, these were taken at 6pm.

It was an enjoyable and interesting experience, trying to see the car from lots of different angles.

I'd love to try it again in an underground car park, using a tripod of course.

I prefer the mono, because of the colour of the car, as they are all good shots

Very nice ..... I like the rack on the back for holding the shopping!

I can't believe that they have built a canopy to keep the sun off

You did mean to say "ONE of his cars"...

These are superb car pictures, but I would have preferred for the car not to compete with the rather complicated building background. However that is what your friend wanted so he ought to be very pleased.

You would loose marks on a professional car shoot!

The wheel spokes need aligning to have a pair exactly horizontal or vertical with both front and rear identical and the RS logo should also be correctly aligned.

I have watched as a car was prepared for a shoot and they were checking the wheels to within a degree!

Lol, I'm hardly a professional and it was just for fun. My wife did comment on the RS wheel centre caps being upside down though! Point taken.

It's not a professional car shoot though, it's for a friend ... and imo he did a damned good job.

Excellent set of photos, love the car, colour is amazing and so are the pics. If I had to pick a favourite it would probably be the last one (Or maybe Side Decals B&W)
No equipment list here but thanks for taking an interest. My Flickr
