Photographing cars / Fotografiando coches / Photographiant voitures

In English:

Can cars been photographed at interesting way? What about if it is the one and same brand and model, can it be photographed so, that one is not tired to see it? I say yes, if we use nice backgrounds, different seasons of the year and when lying on the ground etc.

En español:

¿Puede coches fueron fotografiadas con manera interesante? Digo que sí, si utilizamos fondos bonitos, temporadas diferentes del año y al estar acostados en el suelo etcétera.

En français:

Peut des voitures été photographiées avec la façon intéressante? Je dis oui, si nous utilisons des fonds jolis, diffrentes saisons de l’an et en étant couches par terre etc.

  1. Bonjour,
    Jolie voiture que j’avais déjà remarquée au pied des clochers et qui est bien mise en valeur sur un décor de neige et de façades rouges.
    Vous vous offrez mutuellement de belles balades !
    J’aime en général (… motors ! 😛 ) les vues de 3/4, mais la photo de la calandre prise de très bas me plait bien aussi.

    • Hello Sean.

      The fact is that I am some kind of car fan although I am 65 years old just now. I have taken few thousend car photos and maybe 1000 from my Blue car. But on YouTube I have two videos where I am driving.

      This is when my car was brand new and I lost on the quarter mile contest only with the thickness of bumber. When You look this short video, notice how good reaction time I have:

      This short video is from German highway where I am speeding up to 242km/h or 150.3ml/h:

      As You saw, there are always slower cars coming ahead, well that’s life. I tried to achieve 250km/h or 155.3ml/h with three attempts, but my wife said that no more attempts. My car was full packed because we were making two weeks car holiday, so it was heavy. I think I am a daredevil.

  3. That’s a nice Opel… I think they sell that as a Saturn or Chevy in the U.S.

    • Hello Pit.

      It was my “favorite child”. I owned it between 2007 – 2013. Did you check these two videos:

      Speeding on a German “Autobahn”. We were on one of our road trips in Germany lasting two weeks. This of course, means that our trunk was full of vacation stuff. The car was new. I asked permission of my wife to try to achieve its max speed 250km/h. Two first tries failed totally, because a slower car came in front of us. Third attempt was nearly successful, but then a slower car again “blocked” our speed. We achieved 242km/h or 150.3mi/h. At that speed it means that car went in one second 67.5 meters. This speed on a public road, although on a highway, is not a matter of play. This was the last time, when I have driven fast. Length of video 45 seconds.

      The second video shows how fast reactions I had, although being old, when competing against another Opel. I was member of OCF (Opel Club of Finland). . Length of video 15 seconds.

      Thank you commenting. I appreciate it very highly!

      Have a good day.
