    Inspiration

    I've wanted to have a central spot to post stuff like this for a while now, just to sort've.. explain myself?

    Every time I do a shoot I see something I did wrong, I see what could be improved next time - I always think my shots aren't "good enough". Some people seem to think I'm looking for compliments to boost my lack of self esteem, or I need an ego boost, or I'm too hard on myself - I'm not really sure.. Either way, I wanted to try and clear the air and make it a little more clear on what I mean when I rag on my own work (which I am never 100% happy with.. Not even close)

    A few photographers I love following are VisualEchoes (Andrew) in Missouri, Mike Boldt in Calgary, and Sean Klingelhoefer from L.A.. And a few others - but those are kinda my top 3 so far.

    I want to showcase some of their work to show you guys what I'm working towards, I want my shots to get to this level, and obviously go past this level - so this is what I mean by my stuff isn't "good enough" when there are so many crazy good photographers out there, at a level I'm not at yet...

    Some Mike Boldt - http://www.flickr.com/photos/mikeboldt/





    VisualEchoes - http://www.flickr.com/photos/visualechos/







    Sean - www.SeanKlingelhoefer.com








    I'd like to keep updating this thread with what I personally find really, really cool - and encourage others to post up what they like to see and I'll work towards pleasing people. I'd like to learn how to take/process a picture the way you guys want when I do a shoot of your rides.. You are the customer, after all..

    Sean "Jesus" Klingelhoefer does do some amazing work. He is on the Super street staff, I really like the Mike Boldt Front Integra Type R front shot with the blur background and also the Lotus on the autumn road shot from rear...amazing

    I'm not sure if you've ever visited this site but Stancenation.com has got some pretty good pictures and amazing cars. I'm on the website every damn day.

    Same here man, theres a lot of good info online.

    Kevin, have you tried using light room? Its a great way to enhance your pictures. I know some people go over board with it, but Im willing to bet the pictures you posted have had some tweaking

    I just pirated Lightroom, haven't installed it yet. I've used it in the past and prefer photoshop more as I'm more familiar with it but I've been meaning to try lightroom again as it has a better batch editing system. I also don't do any specialized editing on different layers 95% of the time so photoshop is overkill for what I use it for..

    Some photos from a local photographer here in BC. I'm assuming it's different shooting action shots than it is shooting still shots but I still thought these were pretty good.
