Suby In The House

See  policyofsubster

Okay something different from the Subster.

Over the weekend, my nephew who is crazy about cars asked me to take a few images of his car (as he had just had it valetted) for him to post on a car forum. After a lot of uuummmmings and aaaaaings from me, I lifted my fat butt of the chair to go take the images outside my house.

I am not a fan of cars, I like big and comfy cars simple, can never understand why anyone wants a car that makes soo much noise, 2 inches off the ground with all sort of add ons all over the car, oh and must be able to do 0-60mph in 0.5 secs, WHY oh WHY?

Anyway I digress, as I am taking the shots (half heartedly) I decide "okay put a little bit of effort into it you twit" So I start really snapping knowing I am going to put the Subster's spin into the editing of the images. After the shoot, go to the PC (with my nephew still houding me) and edit about 5 shots. I did the standard just correct the colour balance edits and then I got really funky, and guess which edits he prefered? Yep, the funky uniquely edited shots, guess old school is gradually dying.

He also advised me that his mates and other car enthusiasts on his forum seem to love the Subster's unique way of presenting cars that they might be beating down my door for similar shots & edits for their own cars, Oh well who am I to complain, me Bank Manager going to love me LOL.

Guys feel free to contact me, The Subster awaits...... REALLY

P.s

For those who do not like crazy edited shots, I slotted in the bottom left shot for you, just corrected the colour, added some vignette and had a play with the curve tool.

These shots are really good, the layout is great. I especially like the two on the top right. The black and white really makes the shots.

Perfect layout and a nice presentation of your nephew's car!
Maybe you should apply for a marketing job at Honda.
Great variety in the shots. I can see why he liked your work and why more may be knocking soon!

Hey Suby...really cool car images, lovely pp as well smile becoming a master here lol!

I think I like the coloured one the best.

On to the layout, definately not your forte, but it can be improved, at the moment everything looks rather "Here n there", A excellemt tip is not to over crowd the space, cos this makes it too busy. Pay more attention to good adverts and magazine layouts, you will soon improve smileand I really wont you too.
Suby & Sinem: The Skeelooooo, Nope Layout is not my forte AS YET, I try things out on the blog so I can get comments from people like you who know better and can point me in the right direction, however I know myself, I want to learn how the pros who design layouts for a living do it, so that if the need calls for it, I can do it, but I always like to put my own spin on stuff like this. I actually thought of using one of your layout style but thought that would not be fun grin

Suby
The coloured shot really stands out for me. Inspiring....I think i'll be shooting my car in the coming weeks
Very nice collage!

Great work, Suby!! Once you got going, you really took off. This is a wonderful presentation, and I look forward to the others. They'll be showing up at your doorstep after they see this.

so when can I bring my fiat Panda down...heehee....lol
Hey dude,

We both posted cars today. Your's looks a little better than mine, but we both had the same idea. Pretty cool. And that is one cool ride your nephew has there. Great concept also.

love all but bottom left (don't get me wrong, i'm all for old school)...love the car and being a car maniac myself it's hard not to like a shot like this...2 reasons why people love cars: it gives u control over a powerful object and it gives u thrills....8.25/10

"Wild PP'ing is effective for product photography (which basically these shots could be considered) and is not a "new" idea, car ads have always been more edgy, and contemporary. But I have been looking at some of the current master award winning elite photographer's work from around the world and they largely use subtle techniques. They use light as their main ingedient for their art. I think wildly pp'ed work is largely a photoblog phenomena.

I sincerely doubt that "old school" is dead.

Have a look at these:

http://www.rodneysmith.com/portfolio.php
http://www.cantrellportrait.com/ (she does more "dramatic" pping than the others but it's still more "old school".

You know me Sube old school all the way but I do like your effort here. Marketing is part of my job and I have to say your layout wouldn't make it after pagination. The car on the left is for me but the protrait on the right would have been fine as a stand alone or maybe with one other image, less is more so to speak.

nice car! my father has a Subaru Impreza WRX... that's a speedy car too wink
These shots are so cool (Does your nephew's car look that nice sans PP?). My faves are the pic on the right (is it HDR?) and the one on the top left. I'm not sure about the middle left pic - it looks too unreal - like it's straight out of a video game - and i wish there was more of the car in the bottom left pic. Other than that kewl concept.
nice toy!

Well done Subster. I really you treatment here it is decidedly different and gives me some ideas for the cars I will be shooting this weekend.(the Rockville Antique and Classic Auto Show is this weekend.) Real cars not these rice burners on steroids.smile

Sorry I ain't been around much lately. I'm gonna try to get on and comment more. If you have a chance stop by and check out a friend of mine's new photoblog. http://aocus.shutterchance.com He is just getting into this wonderful thing we call photography and I directed him here.

I really like what you did what you did with the colors on the one on the right. There's beautiful tonality there.
