Oh woah, thanks for the tips guys!
I finally saved up some dough so probably in the next month I'll be picking up a base model Cannon or Nikon SLR. I just want some nice photos like yours Derek!
Quick question, how do you get the shot with rim's spining and same with the background but the car appears picture perfect. I remember you saying you have a car tripod setup that was big and hanged off the car itself.
Also, is just Photoshop CS3 good? I torrented a Photoshop CS3 online with all the basics. Just wondering how you can sharpen the look of the picture. I might have to take some photoshop lessons.
