Nice pics! Just curious, if you don't mind sharing, what lens were you shooting with and from how far away? I'm super amateur when it comes to taking pics!
Thanks man. I have a D750 and too many lenses. I shot these with a 70-200 f2.8. Shots were at 200mm and f4. I usually walk pretty far from the car for 200mm to be able to get the background in there too.

Love them man! I'm waiting to do some fall shots for my car later this year. I was going to ask the same thing. Lol. What lens and camera you shooting with? I normally have my Canon RP with an 85mm mounted.
That’s a good setup. My Nikon 85mm is my sharpest lens. The photos I get with that are so crisp! Sometimes I’ll pick only that lens to do a whole shoot and I’m never disappointed.

Thanks! I don't have a 70-200 yet but am looking into it - maybe a used Canon or a new Tamron? I'm just starting out so 99% of my shooting is with a Canon T3i and a 16-300 Tamron (I have a 80D and 18-400 Tamron but that camera is still a little too much for me lol). How do you feel about f2.8 v f4 for the 70-200 and also 70-200 vs the newer 100-400 lenses?

Nice Nice! F4 is good if that’s your budget. The f2.8 would give advantage in lower light conditions. If you were shooting sports or night time events as well. I ended up buying my trilogy lenses all used. Trilogy being 14-24 f2.8, 24-70 f2.8 and 70-200 f2.8.

If you’re a beginner photographer I would highly recommend investing in prime lenses like 35mm, 40mm, 50mm and 85mm. These lenses will force you to move around more and focus your attention on the aperature, shutter speed and iso etc. I myself have a 10.5 f2.8, and then F1.8 versions of 35mm, 50mm and 85mm.

Figure out what you want to shoot and then invest in the lenses accordingly. I started off with a d7000 so the 10.5 and 35mm are for the crop body.

Thanks for the advice/info!

I normally run my 85 as well. Especially since I do mainly portraits. I even do my car shoots with my 85. Lol. I normally keep it on for weddings as well. I didn't want(nor could I) spend $2k on a Canon 85 1.4 RF so I went with Samyang 85 f1.4 and it works flawlessly.

If it gets the job done, why not!

I've seen some sigma lenses perform on par with their nikon/canon counterparts for a fraction of the price.

I'll be sure to get my 85mm out more often this summer for the shoots too.

Here's a couple of shots I took of my last car back in 2017 in pitch dark with the 85mm f1.8. Both are 30second exposures.
