Talking Car shooting tips with 2009 Nissan GT-R photos

Go here: http://www.nissannews.com/multimedia...2009/gtr.shtml




Download all of the full-res images, and then check out the EXIF data which was left in them. That'll tell you exactly how the shot was made. There's tons to learn from this as far as what sort of shutter speed you need to get the desired motion effect, and a bunch of other stuff. The best news is that you don't need any expensive f/2.8 zoom lenses to do this since they were stopped down at or past f/8 for most of the photos for maximum sharpness and depth of field, and to slow the exposure down for the motion shots. Just need skill and a good platform to shoot from.

And keep your sensor clean!

hmmm...too bad it doesn't teach you how to clean your lens before you take pictures of an 09 GT-R . great find though...i always thought there was a LOT more to rolling shots.

I guess they haven't discovered Photoshop. I'm sure the debris from the sensor could be easily removed.

Otherwise, the pics look great.

They were using a bunch of different Canon cameras. Anything from a 20D on up to a 1Ds-MkII. The 5D is the one that had HORRIBLE sensor dust all over the place, and that's the one they used for most of the exterior shots.

umm... if they stepped down past F8 on a F2.8 lens it would have a slightly different effect than if they stepped down on a 3.5 lens. not 100% sure but would have to try it myself.. rule of thumb its something like 2- 2.1/2 times full stop under maximum aperture for maximum sharpness with limited depth of field.(varies on lenses and bodies)something like that don't quote me on it though... good find though...
