Not sure. I sent someone a friendly e-mail asking what they look for when selecting cover cars, and was told they only have a few 5th gens a year to allow all gens to grace the cover. They're more about performance, even saying that custom lighting it almost a deterrent for them. It makes sense having "Performers" in their mag's name.

They were my top choice being that they did cover my ride, but I may have to look elsewhere. =)

I hope they're at the fest and bring Bad Penny too.

Thanks Randy. Basically it all came from playing with the camera. I've had the camera for a little over a year now.

Always shoot with light coming from behind you (back to the sun)

Angle is just about walking around until you find something cool. Take a shot, if you don't like it, move and try another one

Exposure: 100-200 for outside sunny day. 400 dawn/dusk with some lighting. 800 for night shots. I never use a flash, so a tripod is necessary for night shots.

Ideas = spontaneously thinking of something. I never have a plan of any shot I want. I was driving by, and saw the giant puddle (hey, I wonder if I can get a natural reflection?). Picture idea.

Well. First thing I needa do is get a better camera. Ours are not the best. 400.00 cameras, but don't do what I want them to. Or they do, but I don't have the patience to learn.

I could go for a pin up for my garage so my car can dream about what it may one day become with some diligence and hard work

Looks like a slick for a modeling agency. Nice. If you print a few sheets of that and bring it to the fest, I'd love one to hang on the wall here.
