Couple more macro shots.
Very rare, the veilside Rx-7 man was it awesome to see in person!
^lack of flattbillz...what gives!?
Oh god that license plate is hanging on for dear life
Haha I know it was bugging me so much!
I posted in the Off Topic for advice on picking up an entry level DSLR and got a lot of great suggestions and info. Here is some of the pics I've taken thus far, however, I still haven't had the time to really dedicate to learning everything the camera is able to do.
Not a bad start at all! I don't even use a SLR, instead I use a little Panasonic Lumix then do a few tweaks in Photoshop elements. The only things I tweak are lightness and pic size. Here's a few more I took when I was in photography class.
Did you use saggy butt spacers? I will be dropping in a wrx (aftermarket) strut and sti spring tomorrow in my 06 FXT.
I did not, but I used WRX Wagon specific KYB struts so that might have done something to level it out.
Could be, I thought only difference was the springs, but Kyb has different p/n's.
Looks like the stacks based on the position relative to dt.
Went to the Holi Color Festival today. Was hesitant to go because powder and water don't mix well with electronics. Glad I went though!
Full frame body with a 70-200 f/2.8 or maybe a fast prime?
D600 with 80-200 2.8D. Can't remember off the top of my head but those were all most likely at 200mm at f/4 or 5.
great combo and nice pictures.
Thanks appreciate it!
I wonder if those are my old wheels?
Car looks awesome tho!
Visited Bay Shore in Green Bay, Wi.
Out in Lake Tahoe for vacation. Rented a Camaro SS. Drove from Lake Tahoe to San Francisco and back. This car hauls ass on the canyon runs, even at 7k feet elevation. It just keeps the power coming. Most fun I've ever had driving. Top speeds of 90+ with long sweeps at 70 and hairpins at 20. I definitely didn't hold back going as fast as possible.
Few phone shots until I get home.
Two of my favorites at CnC today!
That's @T_riggidy car lookin hella clean
What did the exhaust say?
Saw both of those at two different shows. The red one was rad.
And am I crazy or do WRX's come with heated wiper blades? That orange one had what looked like heating elements built into the windshield. Holy sh!t...
My forester has heated spots on the windshields where the wipers sit, might be a limited or a premium thing.
Thank you! And yeah mine has heated windshield wipers it's a limited thing!
Got the subaru out of storage and installed Kartboy shifter bushings! Need to put my summer wheels on though, the snow tires were real mushy and squirmy on the hot pavement.
Here's a proper shot of the Camaro.

Nice pic! So this car drives better than any Subaru you've driven?
Depends on what you are rating. Handling was surprisingly well for such a large car. The tires were very grippy. My Impreza is still more nimble but it's like driving a go cart in comparison. The Camaro was much faster then the few WRXs I have driven.
Couple from San Francisco last week...

My attempt to photo shop. How did I do?
What did you edit?
Probably took off the hood?
Really need a polarizer for the windshield. The hood removal (if that's what you did) looks good though.
That was my guess. Usually it's from a higher point of view and they bleed the hood in a little bit so it doesn't look like the hood was just taken off. Good job though!
I took some shots for Derek who is looking to sell his car.
They're taken with the Canon 5D3 and Canon 70-200 f/2.8 IS mkII.
Both are done with two shots with different polarization which are combined in post processing.
Looks great! But what is this about Derek selling his car?!
What do you mean different polarization? Explain the process to me please thanks!
edit: oops misread your question. Nvmd. He probably used two different types of polarizing filters (circular and linear or something) and then made a composite image of the two.
What he's referring to is that you take a picture with the filter polarizing the back window. Then rotate the filter and take another shot of the side windows. Polarizing filters only work for certain angles/sides at a time. He then combined the frames in Photoshop while masking out the non-polarized part. And as you can see, Ben is very good at doing this. It also helps to have a quality polarizer as not all are equal.
Yep, this is exactly right. One shot to get rid of the glare on the windshield and then another for the side. Then combine them both in Photoshop.
You can't stack two circular polarizers to do it in camera. I think it would work if the first was a linear polarizer, but I don't have one of those to try.
You mean like this? Phone is dumb hope this picture shows up
