Firstly I have to say great first pics. Obviously they are not the best but everyone started off with some average pictures. I have to say that I really like the position the camera is, in relation to the car and background and can't wait to see what you produce when you are familiar with the photo-mode feature.

The compositions of your photos are good, but the cars look quite blurry. Perhaps this was your intention but i guess not. You should make sure that you auto-focus on the cars and choose mode 2 or 3 if you still get blurry cars.

And keep on going, a bad photographer never falls from the sky (bad english, i know but im from germany ;))

Thanks people, I hoped for blur on the first shot and corkscrew shot, but yeah, thanks for tips. I will improve on these things

PS: shigun, your English isn't bad, it's quite good. But I think you mean a good photographer never falls...

Great pictures Skython. The first SLS and R8 shots are my favourite.

Nice cars, locations could be better. The first picture leads me to question the game's algorithm for simulating blur though. Photohop could do it better. o_0

Well, let's remind people that I've updated this








^ Sorry for wrong use of miniature filter :(


And version 2


Please comment, constructive criticism, rants on how I did terribly, whatever, please just comment (yeah, I think I'm getting desperate now) :indiff:

Sorry. I forgot to post a comment on the other set before :dunce: They are all pretty good but not the best. Some tips from me would be in phototravel where the car is still, I use 1/8000 (From memory I believe that is the max) and F. 45 (once again the max) but I think you are using that already. I can't really tell.

For action shots use mode 3 and use 1/60, 1/125 or 1/250. They all work well in different situations.

And above all practice. I wasn't the best, and I'm still not, but now I have seen my pictures getting a lot better. I recommend just playing around with everything and learning what works best for the different situations.

I hope there will be more people commenting on your work in the future and I can't wait to see the next set. 👍

Good luck 👍

I have a new update, this time with my new toys

My new Ferrari F430 (not the Scuderia, since it's overused)






My day of rallying in my modified Subaru Impreza (with a 2005 Mitsubishi WRC wing)






My Super GT adventure






Thanks for looking

In Super GT shots, which car is mine??? First to get it receives the feeling of being first ;)

F430 #3 and SuperGT #2 are sweet. I'm gonna guess the red GT-R because the inside line in shot 1 looks a bit aggressive for the AI... maybe...

Thanks guys, and the winner of guessing is Ashes619, the Nissan's line was aggressive but I think he was avoiding me and cut inside (because I'm awesome) and now you get the prize, the feeling of winning. CLAP EVERYONE (clap clap clap clap) :cheers:

New update, from the High Speed Ring. Thing is the rain was bucketing down, but we only had one day. Though this worked well with the photoshoot






^ I love the cool filter, adds awesomeness

Too dark???



Too Dark again?? It's a shame because this would have been an awesome shot :(

Then we headed off to France to test our Oreca Viper, a blast to drive, best car I've driven to date




You will see a lot more of this car in the future, hopefully I'll get some good shots with it rather than these... Cabbages ;)

PS: 5th May, happy birthday James LaBrie ;)

Nice pictures. I actually love taking pictures in the rain but I tend to avoid them. Also that B&W pic is a bit too dark but is still a good shot. Keep up the good work 👍

I like #4 most, I've never seen anyone get that kind of mood at High Speed Ring!

I need to take out my Oreca Viper, I won one but haven't driven it.

Great shots Skython! I like the mood on High Speed Ring as well as the distance of the shot. I also like your warm shot of the wheel with the water reflection on the first page. Keep it up.

Another update

This is where I attempt to actually use the miniature filter correctly, some shots took ages to walk up to



^ It was quite a walk but I got there

Another steep walk up the hill

That's my Toyota there


Addleton Raceway in the wet









Hope you enjoyed these
