Couple Photos of the Mach 1

One little tip: Try and avoid shooting "3-wheel" pics of the car. Like the last one you posted. Most people do that (even professional photographers), as it is a "natural" angle to take a pic from.
I´ve done it too on numerous occasions, without noticing it and I need to remind me of it every time I take new pics.
But if you move just a little to the left or to the right, you will get the rear wheel on the pic too and it will make the car look much more aggressive and the stance will look better. It´ll look more like it is crouching, waiting to jump forward.
Try it, it makes a huge difference.Wink

This being said, very nice pics!
Good tips! You should write up a car photography how to article! That may help everyone take great photos this summer! I know I'm no pro and I'm always looking for tips!

Nice looking car and pics. I was out yesterday trying to find a good photspot to update my picture library.

Great tip Luxstang! The "3-wheel" nickname will help to remember your tip.

Where were those pics taken?? Is that the stadium right beside Lehigh Specialty Melting? The big steel mill?? I work out there about 1 week a month and it looks familiar.

No, it is Memorial Stadium in Latrobe. It's the stadium where the Steelers have one of their big preseason scrimages!
