    Default TOY-ota

    The reason for the thread title would become clear - the use of a long lens visually "flattens" the car, making it look like a toy car in one of the shots. I used a polarizer for these shots, getting a nice background crop proved to be challenging. So some of the photos are shot in a slightly less ideal framing.

    #4 really looks like a toy car. Hee hee. #5 looks like it came straight off the car brochure. Nice!

    Nice 'toy' you got there. Your shots really belong in a Toyota brochure!

    but i think the PS'ed number plate spoils the overall effect.

    Probably nicer to add a YARIS on the licence plates?

    The first shot is ordinary, but fulfils the purpose of showing a fairly standard Vitz contrasted to a kitted out Yaris. (Yaris is actually the international version of the JDM Vitz)









    Again, any comments and questions are welcome.

    If you look at the whole series you might notice that the cars are wet. Rain coming at the end of a long hot afternoon against hot bitumen tends to evaporate quite quickly as mist that hangs at low level. That's the fogging you might be referring to.

    I had to throw out a number of photos where water droplets on the lens caused flaring when shooting against the cars' headlights, though, but that's my fault for not checking that the glass was clean.

    Its from a show in the UK called 'Top Gear'. Jeremery Clarkson whacked a 100HP engine on the back of a Toyato and called it a Toybota. Then drove it across a lake. Its a very good episode.

    Anyway, number 2 works for me, the fogging distracts quite alot form some of them, like Jeanie has said.

    These are not panning shots technically, they're tracking shots. The process is a little different.

    trackking because you are moving in the same plane as the subject u are shooting?

    care to explain the difference?
