Cool Photoshoot...yup again with many MORE mods!

After doing a bunch of new appearance mods/changes since my last real photoshoot of the car I figured it was such a nice day today that after I was done working I went home and got the car so I could take her out on the town to show her off a little. Since she likes attention I had to bring the camera with and have her pose in a few locations I spotted and I tried to snap a few pictures before the sunlight was completely gone for the day.

The changes made to the car since my last real photoshoot thread from months ago are:

*New window tint - 15% all windows
*Tinted/painted Tail lights / Head lights / Fog Lights (custom mix of black/clear)
*Tinted/painted SLE emblems to give a "black chrome" look
*Painted front Pontiac Emblem black
*PONTIAC letters painted black on front plate cover
*Thrush Turbo Exhaust with 3" dual/dual stainless tips
*Custom stock wheels - Chrome on the inside of the spokes is tinted/painted with a custom mix of clear and black to give a black chrome appearance.
*6000k HID fogs added to match the Low beam HID'*
*Engine cover custom painted to match exterior of car and now recently painted the lettering black and red to give it more "pop"

And in the works:
*Repainting the calipers a brighter red with a clear coat to make them stand out even more and look more professional (someone painted them with a spray can at one time before I bought the car)
*Custom Halo LED lights around the fogs
*And who knows what else.. I can't seem to stop, yet I am running out of things to do... for now


Taking photos is one of my favorite things to do with my cars as the whole process from finding a good spot, having proper light (which some of these don't have because it got dark faster than I hoped for) taking hte pictures from the right angle etc.. and then giving the pictures that perfect touch with a little editing to adjust for any errors I might make taking the pictures or for lighting and color the camera doesnt capture perfectly.

The following are a few of my favorites out of about 50+ that I took that I felt were decent enough to share with all of you. Sorry there are not more, I didnt have much time with the sun going down to find good spots so I didnt get to take as many as I would have liked.

NOTE: Please click on the pictures to blow them up to the correct size to see them correctly, as the auto downsizing makes them a bit distorted..






A little fun for you all, here is one of the original pictures:

Just a quick idea: paint the letters on the rear bumper.

Looks great. Should be about time for you to start adding power

Correct on #1, 2, 4, 5 (unsharp mask filter), 6 (just croped to get rid of some of the unneeded background)

As far as #3, I am not sure.. perhaps the shadow may be different due to the color adjustments I did..the adjustments I do from what I understand remove any excess white/gray in the pictures that the camera doesnt filter out and it makes it more clear.

As for the hydrogens... do you mean HID headlights? If so then yes they are HID'*

Yes on the Power and I am still contemplating the letters on the rear bumper.. right now from behind, the car is a sleek and has no badging so when comming up from behind you don't know what it is... if I fill in the lettering like I did on the front plate cover it will stand out more and might ruin the clean look of the back. However I can paint it and if I dont like it just put it back to normal I guess.. we will see.

I'm probably going to get yelled at for saying this but I am going to. I think the mirrors need to be painted black. Since you have the wind guards and the tint during picture time and driving it will blend with the windows. Let the yelling commence.
