How To Take Photos
Digital cameras are easy and preferred for best results. Set your digital camera to its
highest resolution for best results. A 10-mega pixel digital camera would be a minimum
for large poster results.
Adjust your camera settings or select the shooting mode that captures the highest quality
image for the largest possible print picture. View your camera menu to see how many
photos you have available. With the camera set at normal, you may be able to capture
for example 1000 images at 4"x 6" in size on a low setting and by adjusting your setting
to the highest setting, the number count may then be lower with only 120 images at
18"x 24" in size, which is required for best results.
There is no need for a professional SLR digital camera when creating large photo images.
Most simple digital cameras sold today will do the job very well.
When taking a photo of your vehicle and wanting your photograph image results to
be as clear and sharp as possible, position yourself as close-up as possible to the
vehicle or its subject detail and avoid at all times using the zoom option on your camera,
which will tend to making your image very grainy and harsh.
Before photographing your vehicle, take a look at your surroundings; buildings, trees and
other background or nearby items may reflect on your vehicle body panels. It's therefore
best to photograph your vehicle in a clear, area such as an empty parking lot or other wide
Take several exterior front, rear, side and 3/4 view angles of your vehicle. Remember to
include the interior dash, engine and close-ups of any emblems. Please refer to the below
Pay close attention to your lighting. Take photos either on a sunny day or a semi-bright
cloudy overcast day, keeping in mind to always have the sun positioned either behind
you or slightly to your left or right shoulder. Avoid photographing your vehicle with the
sun positioned in front of you, as this will cause the sun to reflect onto your vehicle,
causing unwanted sun glare and in result, a lower quality image.
Once completed, email us 5-15 photos of your vehicle and we'll take care of the rest.
It's that simple. Please refer to our Photo Tips for more information regarding photographing
your vehicle yourself.
