Oldschool 2o4f's impulses

Just got a system, very late to the party, but hey, better than never…

When it comes to the average age of the gamer, I blow the curve all outta whack. (see the gamer tag). I like to paint, I’m better than average driver, somedays. And I like to take the occasional photo. It’s this photo thing I feel I need to work on as it’s the best way to show off the other aspects of the game. So here goes nothing!

A few things spur of the moment.
Love the new textures!

I’m liking your first Chevelle shot. I would personally set aperture higher though.

The front shot on Prague, not the showroom right? Looking for more sense of speed?

Yes on Prague and no sense of speed is good. Just badly needs depth in the shot to make the Chevelle really pop out.

Hey Oldschool, welcome to the ‘Next Gen’ party. Good to see you still painting and racing. Love this shot, the paint looks awesome. Great work as always.

Well, I’m an ok painter, passable driver (sometimes) and my photography’s kinda weak. But hey, I’m having fun!

Good to see ya Devlin! Caught some of your F&F shots. Very nice!

Fantastic paints and pics! I suck big time at painting so leave it to more capable people,like yourself.

Word for word. Great stuff!

Thanks guys! Honestly the biggest obstacle to my photographic improvement is patience. I get a car done, pop a few in the booth shots and I’m off racing or to the next car.
I gotta slow down and take some more on the track shots. I love 'em when I do them, and everyone in here does em better than I do, some of these pictures makes a guy drool, well me anyway.
But I’m learning it, baby steps.
