How to properly take photos of your car
Whether it's a phone or camera, here are some easy steps
When taking photos of your car, make sure it is in ideal shape for the picture. Whether that would be getting it muddy, or keeping it clean, you have to make sure it is what YOU want to see in your photos. Also scope out interesting details such as louvers or interesting curves going along the car to add character to the photo.
The most common and most effective backdrops for cars will include cities or parking garages. Branch out and take it to a forest or a road full of hills! Using this technique always seems to gain more traction when using objects from the setting to be implemented into the background. Be careful not to take away the attention from the car by putting plants and other objects directly in front of the vehicle because it makes a huge distraction when the main point is supposed to be the vehicle. Also, be sure to not get too much sunlight in the photo because it can cause major glare and weird light spots.
The Camera Or Phone
When you are ready to take a picture of the car, make sure your hands are stable, focus the lens on the car, zoom in on it if you need to, then take the picture. For certain cameras and all cell phones, you can edit your photo after you've taken it. What I do is add a little bit of something called 'pop' which makes the photo more clear and vibrant. Vignette and color adjusting is pretty simple to do in the settings and makes a drastic change to the outcome. Too much filters can potentially ruin the photo and make it look unreal. After you're done, press the save button for the edits and changes made, then you're ready to upload!
