A long while back I started a red cayman thread but figured I'd do something more like my buddy Formisano did with his journal thread. Just post some pics of my car here over time. Some of these I have already posted on my Instagram account others I haven't. I'll start from this past year with some of the highlights...

First a photoshoot with some Audi friends up in Marin at Cypress Tree Grove at Point Reyes... back in late February 2016.

First pic is taken by Mario Morquecho, rest were mine with my phone.

Next some driving in the South Bay by Alices and Highway 1 in April, then closer to home in July when I got a flat in my sidewall 5 minutes from my place...heh. The first pic is maybe my favorite of the year.

Next some photos from Monterey Car week in August. First one is a lineup of exotics I stuck myself onto he end of, they kindly let me line up for the pics. Next is a pro shot by Formula Photography of my car along 17-mile drive, next is an iPhone shot in the same area. And then 2 photos of me parked in the lot for Werks Reunion by my friend Gus Dizon.

Here are some pics, again by my friend Gus Dizon who does some nice photo work with pro-gear on the side. This was an impromptu run outside of Pixar for a few pics one day in late November.

Great pics!! If I were you, I would post them in-line with your comments rather than having to click on them.

:cheers:

In order to do that they'd have to be uploaded and hosted externally. This way it's uploaded to p9 for free but yeah.

I have my pictures hosted on Photobucket. It doesn't cost me anything. I just put the pictures there that I want to put on forums.

All of the pictures are great but I really like the colors in the first set. What camera/lens were using and what do you use to do your post processing?

Thanks. I have my own site too I could upload to, I'm just lazy I guess. Plus I usually delete for storage so then they'd all disappear in the future some time. I guess I should look into photobucket or such.

Picture editing i do mostly all in Adobe Lightroom now. Sometimes I'll use photoshop for touch up but that's more for older photos of mine not new stuff. Camera wise the pro first photo by Mario and the ones by Gus are all nice DSLR photos. But other than the first photo there he rest are my iPhone 6 Plus. I also have a Canon SX HS 280 point and shoot i use sometimes too. Some of these are with that camera but I'd have to check metadata on the originals to remember which. The iPhone has really good color and detail but it can be hard to get proper exposure. The canon has a nice zoom but not as clear imo. I've thought about getting a mirrorless camera. But with friends who have thousands in equipment at this point I just plan to have them help. Haha. ;) plus I feel like I get ok results with Lightroom fix up.

But yeah there here is no question the professional level images by say Gus and his equipment are a whole other level of clarity, color and detail. He has some really nice lenses. But for my basic postings online here or IG it's ok for now. I'm too lazy to haul around much.

Did a drive up Mt. Hamilton Saturday and ran into the PCA event coming up the other direction...heh. I've also swapped in new black 19" OZ Leggera HLT wheels now and have a smug mug acct to host my images... enjoy...

As a side note I changed my Instagram account to Cars_and_Comet Here's the link to my IG page.
