It was only after we did everything and started reviewing the pictures taken on the computer that I found out she had her camera set to spot metering and dynamic area autofocus. So I couldn't half-press the button to focus on what I wanted, and keep it there while I moved it around to compose. So for most of the 200+ pictures we did, I was all, "What the Hell? I swear I focused on her face!"

Yeah, I don't know why people think that the GTO is ugly... maybe because the promo pictures were mostly of plain silver and black ones?

MrCritical, it's Meguiar's.

Thanks fp115! I fixed it a little by rotating it back a bit in Photoshop.

Which one, salbracht?

Screwed around with one of the other pictures on her request. I don't like the "Sin City" selective color thing (I think it looks cornier than my "fake depth of field" junk), but she wanted one.




Had to fix the exposure and crop out a lamp post. I wish I had a Photoshop newer than 6.0 so it wouldn't take me forever to do post-work.

This picture looks like she is tipping the car at first sight.


Nice shots though
Pretty girl, but a very distracting image. Try using a longer lens, with a wide aperture, in order to put the background more out of focus.

Are you a photographer or a photoshop artist? This idea of minor color elements in a b&w is phony, distracting and amaturish. Concentrate on taking an image that makes the subject look good, and leave the gimmicks out.

You have a good eye, but need more practice. Photography is like anything else; practice makes perfect.

I know. :)

As for the red picture, yeah... that's what I get for using P-mode. Couldn't use a longer lens, because she specifically wanted me to use her Nikkor 105mm f/2.8 Micro lens. I'm like, "Whatever you want, so as long as I get paid when we get home. :p:" I kinda do wish I used A-mode and pulled the aperture open a bit more than what the camera selected.

Thank you for your input. I really do appreciate it. :)

They don't pop, they just feel heavy and dull. I would have tried to get a little more into the light. Like that picture of her in the driver seat, everything there is so poorly lit.

I guess everyone's got different tastes. But I like the first two--the second one a lot. I don't think I'll be posting photos any time soon if people think these are bad.
