signatures

i had a lot of people PM me for some signature pics, and there are some beautiful cars here, and i made them a few....on here and other sites, i made hundreds
so if anyone needs one made, please feel free to contact me and ill make something up for you.
please try to take a decent pic of your car, ill do the best i can with the not so good pics, but the better the pic the better the signature will be, or better said, the quality of the pic when its shrunk down will be, resulting in better signature.
the best way to do this is make sure you have the setting on your camera to the highest megapixel available, and send the full picture, do not resize it, as it takes away from the quality, when shrunk in photoshop it doesnt loose as much.

i dont know what the best way to do this is, but either a PM or post it here, so either myself or anyone lese can do it if they feel like it, when i have free time i like to mess around in photoshop, so then why not help some people out.
if youve been here for a while, you probably noticed that mine changes a lot.

maybe we can make this a sticky if it goes good

BTW, there is a one time nonrefundable fee of $986

Some photographing tips...

I'm far from any kind of expert, but here are some tips that I have found useful!

Take pictures on a cloudy day (lighting is everything)

Avoid distracting backgrounds (trees, people, other cars, poles)

Watch out for reflections (don't go overboard on the waxing)

For auto portraits, try to take the picture at car-level, not human level.

Experiment with creativity! (And remember what works)

Any one else got any tips?

Yeah, I do. Take a lousy crooked picture full of distractions, such as road signs, power lines, other cars, etc. Then give it to you guys to make perfect...like this

You guys are motivating me to get my camera out and practice taking photos of my car.

Jeph,

To get those 911 headlights you have , you probably had to put new fenders and a bumper on?
