tangcla photography - automotive photography

For those who don't know, I'm an after-hours photographer who specialises in cars and bikes. Please have a look at some of my work, and if you like my work, just like my page, it's that simple!
I don't just take automotive photos. I do weddings, portraits and nature shots too, they are all on my page.
My work does not involve digital manipulation - these photos are largely straight out of camera, with a few minor adjustments (crop/rotate, simple stone chip cloning etc)

Really like the lighting in a lot of the shots, along with that close-up of the F40 spoiler.


However, please don't take pictures of cars on grass. They're cars, not lawn mowers. They belong on the street.

A bit too much of HDR/photoshop smooth in some pictures, but I like the long exposure shots a lot. Thanks for sharing.

?? There's no Photoshop or HDR in these photos. I hate HDR.
All single exposure 95% straight out of camera with slight adjustments in crop and rotate mainly.

Here's a screenshot of a RAW file straight out of camera in Lightroom.

Tangcla: you are clearly a better photographer than average, most people would have to use photoshop to get the sky you have in picture #2. Sorry you felt offended!

I really like the Lexus (but feel the picture would have more presence with a darker sky) and the Benz mirror. Thanks again for sharing.
