Day 0: I Want to Get Better at This.

Dear Oppo,

How’s it going? It sure has been a while since we were last together. I just got off a long overseas contract, so I’m in the very fortunate situation of having some money and plenty of spare time. So I’ve decided I’m going to work on my photography. I have always been in awe of the photos I see on Speedhunters and the like; I pore over every post for hours in end. I’d love to be a photographer, but my skill level is just not there. So I’m going to improve it. I’m going to take more pictures of cars, I’m going to play with angles, and I’m going to learn. And I’m going to do that by taking (on average) one new car photo per day for the next year. I figure you fellas will be my sounding board, helping me figure out what works and what doesn’t.


Since I’m moving around a lot while trying to figure out job, the logistics of posting to Oppo daily are difficult. But by this time next year. there will be 365 photos here.

I also think it would be a lot of fun if other people want to join me in this project, and I encourage you to do so if you’d like by posting here or under #iamNOTthespeedhunter on twitter.

Penny for your thoughts, E30 for your time.
