Hey Marc I definetly see what you were talking about with the apeture (sp?) setting and that it takes some experience to focus it just right. Your pic of Craig in the first few shots was really blurry and almost overexposed, yet the black E90 in the background was perfectly in focus.....Im going to try experimenting with it later if I get the chance this afternoon.
Yeah I remember that one.... I saw Craig, I just turned and snapped it. I hand my camera set to a specific focusing setting (spot focus) which is a very narrow view and one you use for portrait photos i.e. people/objects are not moving. You must aim exactly at your target or you target will be out of focus. I also have a setting where the camera will focus on the closest object to you, If I had it set there I prolly get the shot...

The lighting was a little tricky early, I was using a polarizing filter to remove glare, but he sun kept going in an out thus explaining some of the darker shots. A little post processing with photoshop will fix those, so if anyone is interested I can fix, let me know.

When you move to aperture priority your pics will improve with respect to sharpness but it is critical you aim to what you want to be in focus. If you do your shots will be tack sharp. Start with something close to F6, check you shutter speed, you want to be 350 or over if not using a tripod. If you have shaky hands keep lowering your aperture to increase shutter speed. Higher aperture setting = tighter/sharper foreground/background, lower aperture = more blurred foreground/background. Sometimes you may want to do the latter to get rid of the background leaving your target as the only thing in focus.

Example 1: BMW amongst other cars in a crowded lot, you may want to use the lowest aperture setting to blur out everything but target

Example 2: Grand Canyon or landscape shot, you want to use the highest aperture setting possible, because you want the most depth of field in focus.. depth of field meaning the foreground and background of your shot

My camera tip of the day..

Nice hangin with you bro!

Some photos I took, nothing exciting though

I didn't go to take photos, but had the camera with me, so I snapped a few

Not the greatest shots either

Hi! Here are some pics I took. I knew there were other people taking pics of cars so I focused on people! The first one is obviously my own car, took the pic before left home. So here is your proof - the car AND WHEELS were clean when I left home! You try driving for 4 hours and then tell me you have clean wheels...

Great pics, keep them coming.

Lol i thought this was funny. When it came down to judging the cars, there was a tie between my E92 M3 and ferrari6891's E92 M3.

Ferrari6891's won because he had the sunroof instead of CF. The Bestbuy judges said they though the sunroof was more special.

I was happy one of the Ms won but Sunroof > CF??

Hahah Well before I got my car, a friend of mine from back home asked me to bring him CF roundels for his 5 series, because they are cheaper here. I thought that was the stupidest thing I had ever heard, replace the existing roundels with some CF ones.

Little did I know.....
