Arrow Pick your Camaro colors here. (Paint Chip Photos)

Ladies and gentlemen,

I have gotten my hands on an official Camaro Paint Chip Card and after MANY days of bad weather I finally managed to get out into the sun and take some photos of the colors in what I think is the most important lighting conditions possible.

I set up in an empty field because trees and buildings were reflecting on the chips in my first photos, and it was windy so I had to tape the chips to a cardboard box with some weight in it so it wouldn't blow away. I did freeze my butt off.

The paint chips were photographed from various angles with two cameras, a Casio Exilim and a Canon EOS DSLR. The white balance was set for sunny daylight and I think the true colors come through on my monitor.


Note... the last two images were taken with an overcast sky for comparison to a cloudy day.

I also have the full resolution images in closer detail if anyone thinks they want a bigger closeup of a color. Tell me which image and which color you want zoomed in. I think seeing them side-by-side is better though.
