1st attempt at a rolling shot while knowing what I was doing, technique needs refinement though. My one buddy didn't clean his car so there isn't many shots of the BMW

Playing with my new low Fstop lens, my technique with it needs refinement as well but its my 1st time out with it, it struggles to get a solid shot with 2 cars.

The car is a Corolla GTS and not imported, but I gotta agree with the owner that the Trueno name is just better and as far as im concerned it doesn't do the car justice lumping it in with your standard Corolla

Was unsure if I should go with selective colouring or B&W for this photo. So I went with both.

The alternative.

Starting to realize the limitations of the lens and more focusing on 1 car.

Moving to a new location that was thankfully empty since there were a ton of cars around the area.

Lil bit of a surprize in under the hood of the Corolla in the form of a Honda F22c, plans are to give it a turbo down the line.

More playing around with the lens seeing the DoF/bokeh effect I could pull out of it.

Another one of the BMW I am looking forward to shooting with this car in the future with how it plays with the light.

JDM LHD Nissan Silvia, I am more of a Toyota guy, but certainly not a bad example of an S13 either.

I do wish I put my Toyota Bias aside and tried to get some more shots of the Silvia on its own.

Always liked the Silvia font

Always found Silvia headlights to be a very curious design.

A bit of a higher angle shot, not something I normally play with but there was a nice staircase that let me give it a try, will have to keep my eye out for chances like this in the future.

A great example of a "technique" I learned when shooting that involves getting the absolute most out of the positioning of a car, a location change and viewing at a different angle can REALLY alter up a photo even those the car hasn't moved from its location in the previous shot.

This 86 reflects light in ways I've never seen on a car I shot it picks up alot of blues and in a few cases (that were mostly edited out) some purples. This is the only photo where evidence of the purple remains though. (well along with the previous one)

A 3rd example where a physical change in camera location can offer up a very different picture, even though it was a fairly minor change, like before the car hasn't moved with exception of the hood.

Another shot from the staircase.

Back to my bread and butter super low angle photos.

This was taken simply by holding the camera as high up as I could manage while still being on the ground, it offered a shockingly nice angle of cars, definitely a method I will have to play with in the future.

More highlighting of the DoF/bokeh I was simply trying to get a nice picture that highlights the sticker for my buddies garage.

Another location move is a more hidden away area but still within Downsview.

Took alot of work to pull the lighting out in this photo but I think its worth it, but god that license plate editing was a nightmare, its still not perfect but an hour was more then enough time spent on the plate alone.

And to close it off an actually 100% fluke unintended photo that came out great (with the exception of my buddy recording who was to much of a pain to remove.)

Lastly a link to my personal flickr, thanks for looking. Hope whoever stumbles into this enjoys.
