As far as car angles go, I always like the shots of a car moving taken from another car (safely by a passenger of course). Gives a nice sense of movement i think :)

Tilting the camera really works well with taking photographs of cars.... Heres mine on the 2nd day of ownership.. on a camera phone

If youve got a camera phone get on your knees, stand on a wall and even lie flat to get an idea of what pictures you will like and want... try different corners off your car as in pic, tilt and take straight... Once taken you will know what your after :)

To be honest Fella, it's due to Light and area. they pretty much rule what the best angle is for a shot. Such as daylight pics you have to work around the sun and the reflections from the car and the background.

For instance these.



















There is a few to help you decide what you want, Unfortunately I don't have any in car park pics as i just can't get the bloody car in them LOL



Usually the Best guide is make what you are taking a picture of a third of the shot, Make use of the surroundings, usually have the sun behind you, don't get in the reflections and try different angles for greater presence in pictures. I am no where near a proper photographer but these rules will get you some half decent shots.

Yeah that is my fave at the moment, always wanted to get the rear lights in :D

Next up is moving shots for me and thats a little more tricky LOL

It's easy enough getting pics of mates cars but getting your own and the blurred effect of speed means making up some kind of arm to hold the camera. but they will come eventually when I get round to it :D

Loving that Last pic there fella, Only thing that would annoy me is that street light LOL Oh well will just have to learn how to use photoshop I guess !!!

BEST SHOT OF THE LOT ;)
