    Photo Tips:
    Use a tripod
    Landscape format ONLY
    Never shoot into the sun unless you are a professional who can compensate for that exposure
    Try to avoid shooting between 11am and 2pm; the sun is normally directly overhead and does not provide for good lighting or shadow detail

    Shoot early in the day/sunrise or late in the day/sunset or if you have some skills you can shoot at night, by doing this you will improve the contrast of your paint and wont be so harsh to look at, overall all a good rule of thumb is dont shoot between the hours of 9am to 4pm depending on what time the sun comes up where your at and goes down. Here is a shot done at sunset and as you can see how the shadows and reflections do the rest.

    Not the best pic but a good example of what to look for....

    They'd look better au naturale, not darkened with a border.

    Doesn't look like sh*t, at all. We've all been victim of poor lighting, been there done that. Now you know better and your next batch of pics will show that.

    How do you put the black border around your pics like that, it makes the pics look so much better?
    to each their own...some people like it, some dont. I happen to like it.
