rain would actually be a cool time to take them, especially since you have a garage that you can stand in to keep the camera out of the rain

Is that because the room is spinning and you'll fall down and go boom?

looks like you need to work on aiming of your lights quite a bit.

Tip for photoshoots: if doing longer exposure night shots, your headlights will look best if you don't have them on for the entire exposure time. It'll take two people, some coordination, and only a brief flashing of your lights. If you can, use a smaller aperture.

Brightness is hard to replicate in photos too, so vary the on time accordingly if you want accuracy

Example (yes, I know its a Camry, belongs to a buddy of mine) - even for this shot, I'd have liked to have the lights on for a bit shorter. Exposure time was 13 seconds, lights were on for about 1.

Ryan, I haven't forgotten about scanning more pics. I *will* get to it
