Making photographs, not just taking them – Dundee, Tayside, Scotland

Something New

Turned my hand to something new a few days ago, shooting a couple of vehicles.  I hadn’t tried this before and what I learned is that there is a lot of post editing required to really make any of the images interesting.  Without any editing all the images simply looked boring and the vehicles didn’t stand out at all.  Here is the edited/final images:

One other thing I discovered is that a really wide angled lens (a 10-20mm) could be useful to give a different look/perspective to this kind of shot, shooting at 17mm on a crop sensor body isn’t wide enough for what I was thinking.  But what I did do with my 17-50mm lens was to zero in on a few details of the car and these shots I really like, they also required some editing but not as much as the full car shots:
