This Evo belongs to the guy who built my motor, the previous white RS he owned (this is a clone of it) for a short time held the stock block, stock turbo 1/4 mile record.

I really like the white IXs with SE lips. If they had made the IX SE in white, I'd have gotten mine in white (instead of gray again, like my Evo before it).

Nope, these are from this past Wednesday's Sonic meet. I didn't take a ton at MOD in Texas, the event was nowhere near as big as I expected it to be. I'm glad the main reason I went down there was eating, drinking, and shenans, because if it had been for MOD specifically I'd have been unhappy with the trip.

Those pics are processed but have yet to be uploaded. They're all daytime pics, so with my lack of lenses and filters they're kinda whatever which is why I've been lazy about them. I'll get them up in the next couple days.

I do plenty of touch-up on them.

Things are at a point where I genuinely feel that it's a waste of my time to play around with camera settings between shots, when it's so much easier to set the aperture for desired depth of field and let the camera pick a shutter speed, since I have so many adjustments I can make to the RAW data after dumping the photos to the computer.

All of them get 4-point lighting-based adjustments, from highlights to shadows, then most get color saturation adjustments as well. Nothing crazy, and nothing that couldn't be done on film with knowledge and skill.

As a result, it allows me to focus largely on composing the image instead of worrying about metering exposures and doing maths.

I use a similar approach (great, now I sound super hipster) but I find I tend to take multiple shots at the same angle with different settings and then see which one I like best - then further enhance it later at home tongue.gif

Shooting RAW does a pretty good job of eliminating the need for multiple shots in my mind. That's not to say I don't know how to meter and properly expose a photo on the camera side though, I just think it's easier and better worth my time post-processing.

And with that, the few MOD photos I published:

This one belongs to Pirana, it's a fairly well known car in the community:

Pirana looks hot. These are from the meet in Texas right? Did you get to see any of these guys in action? If so did you manage to take a video of them? If so are you going to post them? laugh2.gif

Yep, those're from Texas. Only car I really got to see in action was the Graphite Gray X MR whose front end is visible in the pic of the Cobb booth. Car makes 416whp on their Mustang dyno.

I'll get some vids of quick Evos from MAP Proving Grounds later this month.

Not many shots from tonight, this is actually most of them. Spent a large part of the night waiting for camera batteries to charge. That's what I get for not coming prepared.

Another nice round of shots Spaz! I love it! I always carry around an extra battery for may camera though since they are a pain in the butt to charge. Now a quick question. How the heck does that truck get over speed bumps? Or how does it get over dips, or pot holes, or how does it drive over anything that isn't a flat surface? laugh2.gif

I own 4 batteries... Somehow none were charged.

Yeah, the truck's bagged. And as long as it's got an air setup, the train horns were a natural must. awesome.gif

Wide open aperture (f/3.5 for that lens) with a shutter ranging from 1/50 to 1/15 as light went away.
