    The panning modes was of great help. I hadn't messed with them and now that I know exactly what technique each is, I am excited to get back into some "race photomode"

    Thanks for the write up, I will surely send others this way.

    Sorry I didn't answer sooner. But you simply have to step down the aperture, where the car is on the image doesn't really matter, as vikonic explained, you just have to focus where you want to, and you can reset the camera to place the car where ever you want. I just finished the section on focal lengths, which might help explain blurs at far distances.

    Overall, pretty good, good compo, good focus, good blur, keep it up.

    Thanks for the feedback! You're welcome.

    Thanks for the recommendation! It's much appreciated.

    So I finally got around to writing up the focal length section, sorry about the delay guys. I feel like PD here lol, just been busy. But I'm done schoooooool now for good and I should have more time on my hands! ...should lol.

    You're welcome, thanks for your feedback.

    You're welcome =D

    Glad to be of help

    No no, thank you :tup:

    Glad to know it helped.

    Maybe? For sure they will be! lol

    Some of your photos of black cars are slightly overexposed, otherwise, they're good, keep at it.

    Thanks =D

    All photos come in 'HD' technically. They're all 1080 pixels tall at minimum. Simple export the photos from the game, to the PS3 XMB, then to a USB flash drive.

    Thank you :tup:

    Ok, so after much Polyphony styled delay, I've added the Composition section, and the "realism" section. Both of which still require a heck load of review and editing... and I do mean a lot, so forgive me if it seems sloppy lol.

    Very nicely done sir. I have been looking for an explanation of the GT5 camera and I don't think it could've been done any better. Great work with the visual aids :tup:

    Just finished reading the new update on composition, really good explanation, it explains the rule of 3 very well, when I first read about it a year or so ago, it took me ages to find out what it truely ment as the explanations I was getting were really poor.
    Also I totally agree with this:

    Now, if you haven't noticed already, the most popular thread in this GT5 Photography forum is the "Realistic Photo Thread", unfortunately, I'm part of the group of people who find that 80% of the images aren't in the slightest bit realistic.

    Great Guide and explanations of real life photography and very nice album on Flickr by the way!! The aperture works very nice on food. I'll have to give it a try myself.

    Absolutely immense guide. i know you say you only do photography as a hobby and 100% self taught, and your very good at it, perhaps your real forte is teaching...all very nicely explained.

    thank you for putting a lot of time into this guide.

    Brilliant work GTSomething! I can't wait to get stuck into this.

    Photo mode never interested me before but after a little dabble on it and seing some of the stuff people are getting I'm looking forward to catching some shots of my Lancia Delta.

    That shot of the back end of a Skyline in the tunnel is awesome. (The one in the part on centering)

    Big thanks to gtsomething. :tup:

    I wasn't that much into photomode before reading this... After reading the guide I deleted 90% of my old pictures and ended up making new improved versions of the 10% that had somekind of idea in them :)

    Haven't stopped taking photos since. Getting bit addicted... :dopey:

    Nice thread, also I took this this year... looks a lot like the one from the section on panning! ... goes to show how accurate the gt5 camera really is...

    Fantastic OP and really opened my eyes to what is possible. I feel like deleting my gallery and starting all over again :D

    But maybe I'll keep it so I can look back on my progress.

    Thanks :tup:
