Just clean your car and find the best spot. Easy, right? But that’s only the beginning. The mobile phone today is unrecognisable from its ancestors of even ten years ago. Your cell is a phone, computer, TV and of course a camera all rolled into one. And since your mobile is always with you, you can take terrific snaps without too much of a fuss. Here are a few tips for shooting your SKODA.
Find the bigger picture
The best images are those which also work great as thumbnail. Especially in social media, it should catch the eye even when it’s very small. So don’t get lost in the details and break the whole scene down to simple forms. So don’t carried away by details. Squinting at the picture will also work.
Simplicity is the Essence
Use basic apps and take your time. Get a feel of the location and its atmosphere. Shooting your SKODA with a mobile should be a simple and uncluttered process. Focus on what you want to and don't get distracted.
The Best Weather is Not the Best Weather
Clear blue skies make for a boring picture. Clouds, rain, snow, or hail add terrific drama to a picture. Rain, mist, and fog can make a busy scene look serene. And raindrops on the bonnet look quite marvelous!
Get the angle
Avoid zooming. Instead move around the car and try different angles. Play with the distance between the camera and the car. Shooting the car in a large dramatic landscape, for example, can add a sense of scale.
When you take a picture of a person, the best angle is usually at the height of his eyes. When it comes to cars, the headlights are their eyes. The front wheels should be aimed straight or turned away from the camera to add a sporty feel. Avoid showing the rubber. Try not to use the main lights, parking lights or LED daylights look much better. However, the view from the back is always better with the lights on. Leading lines like roads or bridges add a sense of speed or movement.
