    I assume none of the cars you photograph have a matte finish. I think you mentioned you get rid of reflections . . . I tried taking similar photos recently at the dealer, and if my photos are any indication, that means a lot of reflections-killing work.

    I thought about duplicating some of your photos, but I’m not sure I want to invest the time in post-processing since I’d have to develop a process from scratch.

    . . . so many reflections I’d have to eliminate . . .

      Thanks, E. If you tried to shoot the cars in the showroom you would have quite a challenge. Indoor lighting usually has multiple sources which are hard to control much less try to overcome. Outdoors and in the shade or on an overcast day is much better for controlling reflections. Don’t give up. It’s a fun project.

    I passed a poster in a parking structure yesterday of a close-up of a red car. Whoever took the photograph could learn a few things from you. These are beautiful car photos, like the rest of yours.

      Thanks, Linda. That’s so nice to read. I have a few more to post but, to be honest, my percentage of post-worthy shots to trash-can shots is very low. However, that is something I have cultivated my entire life, at least regarding photography. (It’s even more so now with digital since I don’t have to pay for film and processing.) I’m not ashamed of it because (hopefully) I learn from my failures.
