my POS car for now until I get better, then I'll ask around for a real car!
hey guys, thanks for the welcome and the tips.
There are lots of nice photos in here.
Whats the best nikon lense to use for crisp car shot.
Here is another one of my 69, front view.
Depends...for least distortion I'd go with a 50mm for an FX camera and 35mm for a DX camera. Those are the "normal" lenses for the formats, and generally speaking, are very sharp, especially when stopped down just a bit (f4 - f8). You could use a telephoto if you want to flatten the view a bit. A wide angle lens will definitely give a distorted view. It would make for an unusual shot, but could be used to emphasize some particular feature, like enlarging the front end to make it more of a "beast". Of course, you would want to be careful with your angle on such a shot.
One note about your latest picture. If you turn the wheel straight, or toward the camera, the wheel doesn't tend to look so disembodied.
Thanks for the info.
The wheel thing, i did on purpose. Its a typical thing they do to show the rim more and adds to the characteristics of the car.
