Here was a quick set I did for the owner of the Mercedes Benz AMG E63 Wagon & AMG CLS63 as I was leaving his house after we dropped off his cars. Since his Porsche also had HRE wheels on them we though awh what the heck, why not?
First of all I love your photos and your amazing editing! I´m a young student of economics/finance and I run a shop wich specializes in refining cars and in some cases building race cars for customers. Soon I´ll move to New York to complete my studies and hopefully get a good internship. We build 1-2 cars per 6 months and I´ve been running the shop with my dad and brother for four years, since I was 19.
I´ve hired photographers everytime I needed photography but two months ago I decided to get into photography myself. So I bought a Canon 600D with the IS kit lens since I was told its a good choice for beginners. I also got my self an external flash with remote controll two nice tripods. I´m happy with what I acheived but I feel like I need a new lens and some car photography specific tips since I´m going to launch a website and I need good photos.
What lens do you think I should get? I need one for interior shots and one for exterior, and if there is a good all round lens for car photography I need that too.
I´m getting used to CS5 and I use your tips!
Hey, I would stick to buying a range of lenses and not just one that works all around unless image quality is not your number one priority. Of course to everyone else the image quality will look the same and will be minimal difference if anything. So keep that in mind. I would take a look at the Canon 24-105 f/4 L lens for general use and the Canon 16-35mm f/2.8 L lens for interior and narrower shots. If budget is a concern, try the Sigma or Tamron equivalents. I always stick to the oem because I feel they know what’s best for their own products.
Hope this helps and good luck with school!
What differences will I feel? If I go for the Canon 24-105 f/4L?
I´ll probably order it this week and then wait until the end of this month before I get the 16-35 :)
My young cousin who is 15 is also getting into car photography and I suggested him the 600D just as I was suggested. He will probably get the kit lens. What should I answer him if he says he´s looking for a better setup? Obiviously he wants his gear cheap but good, what do you think he should get? Do you know any good lenses that are cheap and work great at events?
Thank you for your time!
You won’t be able to shoot as wide and will have some trouble shooting interiors, that’s about it.
As for your cousin, you should try to recommend third-party such as Sigma, Tamron, and so on.
