This is my friends Nissan 240 that he has poured his heart and soul into, it’s by far one of the most inspired drift cars around these parts and I was lucky enough to get some one on one time with him and the car. The article link is below, all my words and photos so please check it out!
I swapped a transmission in my Volvo and went drag racing. Only the most proper of pre-exam preparations in this household. Who wants to see the result?
We finally have a local drag strip and we managed to get our turds together in time to go have a bit of a face-off. Check it out and let us know what else you’d like to see!
Is the number of days that a Volvo AW70 transmission will hold up behind 16psi of force-induced Swedish redblock power.
I have recently become interested in doing motorcycle things. I had been on bikes a few times in the past but honestly had no clue what I was doing. I went and took the MSF course this past weekend to get my endorsement(and passed without a single point off on anything). Now I’m looking for a bike.
I used to try and keep my photos a lot more true to the scene but lately I’ve been playing around with making them whatever I feel like while editing and seeing what I can come up with. I managed to get this one how I wanted then spent the rest of the time trying to match the feel with the rest of the set, I like it.
I was swapping wheels last night and the jack was caught on a peice of gravel, it pulled itself off the pinch weld and did this. Lesson learned to not rush and do things with inadequate lighting. But....
I usually don’t like photos of my car in black and white, but I think I’ll make an exception this time.
I got to try my hand at rolling shots again this weekend, it’s pretty rare I have a helper and can make this happen when doing a shoot, but I love doing them. I think I’ve improved a decent bit from the first few times I got to take a swing at it.
I have been trying to identify my deficiencies with photography and work towards improving them, I like to think of it like the photographic 12-step program. “First step is admitting you have a problem”, and no I don’t just mean with buying expensive gear. This time around I’m going to dive into how to deal with a…
But what was the question again?
Of what the new lens I got is capable of, I’ll post a full review after the weekend when I have some more chances to play with it, but enjoy! All taken with a Canon 17-40mm f/4L on a 7D.
I didn’t get to get any full car shots of this one thanks to people always being in the way, but I really like what they’re done with it!
EDIT: SOLD already... maybe I should have priced it higher... haha.
I think I’m going to start posting more actual photography stuff to Instagram instead of just the random things I happen to snap with my phone... seems like a good outlet for it and here’s the first two ‘real’ pictures I’m posting up.
Bonus NISMO after the jump!
Finally got around to editing more of the last roll of film I took. I feel like improvements are happening!
I've been getting better with them I think, but I'm considering buying some other stuff to help with it, diffuser umbrellas, stands, gels, etc. do you think it would be worth it for car photography?
So I ended up with a 66" APR GT-250 wing for free because it had been used to catch tires after going into the wall at nearly 100mph, it was destined for the trash so my friend let me have it. I'm fixing it up to be completely functional and look like new again, I don't think he thought I could do it. I'm not done…
