    Haha, nice. Had no idea they posted so many things I've shot. Three of the five cars they mention at the end of the article are also cars I shot. Though, they messed up saying the D-Type is for the NYC sale.
  8. Thanks! About to go shoot a LOT of cool stuff over the next week.
  9. I hope it's some rare muscle car. <A BORDER="0" HREF=""><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/smile.gif"></A>

  13. nice shots, but i don't really like the bokeh. it looks artificial.
  14. Black La Ferraris look so #$%#ing mean.
  15. yeah totally. the car looks great, except for those butt ugly mirrors.
  16. Then you really won't like this one.

    I don't do anything to the bokeh/DoF in post, just to be clear.

  17. I like it, makes me want to buy some scale models
  18. I don't know what w00t's talking about - I think that looks great. Full Frame really helps you to take advantage of a shallow depth of field.

    I'm guessing 24-70 f2.8 L

    Am I right in saying you've got a 135 f2.0 L, too? I really want one of those.
  19. I know you didnt. Just makes the car look like toy cars imo
  20. I do have the 135 f2 and love it. Would definitely suggest it if that's a focal length you'd use.

    At the moment I only have three lenses. The 135 f2, a 35 2f IS and the 10-18 IS STM (with a Rebel SL1 to use it on).

    That D-Type photo was actually taken with the 135, but it's a stitched shot and comes out to about 147MP. You really can't get that shallow of a depth of field and that wide of a field of view with anything on the market in a single shot, AFAIK. Well, without going into tilt-shift lenses.
  21. I actually don't disagree and try to find a balance. Have been trying to make sure I don't get that extreme with it unless that extreme isolation is the idea (and it usually works better with the car more parallel to the focal plane).
  22. That's a really nice pic, good job!
  23. Yeah the angle of view made me think it was a wide angle lens. amazing work on the stitch btw; I had no idea.
  24. Can I see the full res shot pls!

    Here ya go:

    When you first saw that shot, I bet you didn't think you'd be able to tell what angle the headlamp cover's screws were at, did you?

    You might have to right click and save it to view it. This kind of resolution isn't friendly to most browsers.

    EDIT: Wish I could get Photoshop to stay open long enough for me to finish processing and export that gigapixel image I have of the Pinnacle Portfolio. Always crashes after just a little work and takes several minutes to save any changes. :/
