I second the day pics. I'm no photographer but the shots aren't great. The car looks very nice though!

Thx. I know the shots aren't good. I borrowed my sisters camera late and wasn't sure what I was doing. I'll try to get some daytime pics soon.

Camera or not, matte black wheels are meant for the stealth look not the flashy style type.

were you using a tripod?

a lot of the pics look a little blurry and grainy.

Grain is usually in pictures from using an ISO too high for the camera. I'd try a lower ISO and go for a faster shutter speed, which requires a tri-pod.

The first angle you have is the best. There is a method in shooting cars called the base triangle. You want the car to almost make a generic triangle like the first shot and last shot.

Keep practicing. The car looks good

Thanks for the input. I'll try it again using ur advice. And no I wasn't using a tripod. The thing is I like taking night pics. Daytime pics don't really capture the stealth of the car IMO. Any other specific advice for night pics?

Sorry, I just woke up when I replied to you .

What I meant to say, for night shots, use a tri-pod and a LONG exposure time . I just got back from doing action shots in the forest, what a headache.

In order to bump up the exposure, you can either go higher iso or longer exposure. Problem with going high on ISO is you're prone to noise. So you bump that down and go longer exposure. Because the camera isn't taking pictures as quickly, the tri-pod is required to stabilize it during the process.

Top Speed is where I ordered them from. I ordered the Chromium black in 18x8.75 +35 & I guess the +35 offset wheels havent been shipped yet....Ive been waiting since March.
