I would definitely be interested! I've just finished studying photography at college. Have never really got back round to taking some better shots of my car, always others!
It'd be good to get some more knowledge on taking photos of cars especially!

Nice piccys though, and enjoy your stay here! :)

Cheer Ashleigh, Hope to have the guide up early next week.

Ha... We appear to have gone on a grail hunting tangent.

Did you say shrubberies?

The subtle mods are the best ones as you can see the differences that the casual observer may miss.
You could get the LED brake light i did, it saves faffing around with bulbs and has more lights too.

The light is a straight swap and takes a couple of minutes.

That looks smart mate. The tint on my existing light looks pretty good so I am going to leave it for the time being but could be worth an upgrade in the future.

since you have purchased a clear fog unit,
you can use your red unit as a second socet in the clear one and upgrade to twin reverse with fog light in the same unit,
then purchase some cree Q5 reverse bulbs 110watts of light from the rear with both fitted.
see the guide in the list below my posts, for both mk2 and mk2.5 models.

id be interested in a photo guide if you had the time mate,
i reckon lots of people would benefit from it and post it in the guides section of the forum.

Saw your guide for this mate. Will probably not bother though as I can't think of a single occasion where I have thought it would be useful to have a second reverse light. Might upgrade the bulbs though.

Massively mate!

But in plain english.. there's plenty of guides out there but all in 'photo' speak - which doesn't help people like me!

The first picture looks like a genuine ford advert picture! Looks brilliant.

A guide in English for using a camera other than auto would be great help, I too just leave mine on auto most of the time, when im feeling brave I use macro for arty close ups haha.

Cheers guys. A guide seems like a popular idea so I will get cracking. I think I will make it as straight forward as possible so that anyone no matter what camera they are using can benefit its amazing how a few tips and tricks can improve your pictures even if you are using a phone camera as many people are. If that goes well then I might do a slightly more in depth version for folk who want to get a bit more out of there dSLR.

I wish i could use a camera like that! I just leave my dSLR on full auto!

Experiment Gav, there's a whole world beyond auto!

Do you think there would be call for some hints and tips of photographing fords/cars in general? I could put something together if there was interest.
