An eBook is just like a regular book, except that you can read it on your computer, tablet (like an Apple iPad), or smartphone. They are typically produced in an electronic format, such as PDF (Portable Document Format) and if you use Apple’s iBooks you know that the Library lets you display books in two different formats, including PDF.
If you like classic cars but would like to make better photographs of them at outdoor shows and Concours d’Elegance, the eBook has some of the answers you may be looking for. What about the challenge of photographing hot rods and customs at indoor car shows? It’s all there in 15 Tips for Better Car Photos.
Are you a photographer who likes to make pictures of cars but have been disappointed with the results so far? Then you should pick up a copy of 15 Tips for Better Car Photos too. It’s a concise look at how to make great car photographs under all kinds—especially less than ideal—lighting and working conditions.
Well first of all, don’t let the title 15 Tips for Better Car Photos fool you because the book contains more than a few bonus tips as well. You’ll learn when to shoot in black and white or when to shoot color. There’s information on why it’s important—including examples—to shoot details of a car, especially when at crowded car shows. I’ll show how I made the photograph called “Dreaming of Fiats” when working under challenging and crowded—lots of spectators—at an Italian car show. Or how I created an impressionistic image of Michael Schumacher winning the US Grand Prix in the rain at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. But there’s plenty there for lovers of American cars, muscle cars, and hot rods too.
There’s also lots of information on photographing motorsports from sports car racing to drag racing including safety tips when working around fast and dangerous racecars. You’ll go behind the scenes as Joe photographs a small car collection for a client and look at not just the challenge of photographing a group of cars but the logistics involved in making the shot happen. It’s all here—and more—in the modestly titled eBook 15 Tips for Better Car Photos.
