    How to shoot creative car photography

    Don’t stop your car photography shoot after you’ve bagged a classy ‘portrait’ of your automobile. Close in on the details and shoot more abstract shots.

    Badges, wheels and detailing in and around your vehicle’s bodywork can say much more about a car than the standard shot.

    Use a wide-to-standard-range zoom lens to capture your abstract and detail shots, a kit lens of around 18-55mm is perfect for this.

    Use all the quirky angles you can think of and don’t shoot anything on the level or head on for maximum impact.

    Once you’ve got a card full of shots get them on the PC and play with the Levels to create some funky car art or polyptychs.
