Twenty top tips for tak­ing great pho­tos of your Vauxhall, plus a look at the tools of the trade.

There’s no two ways about it, tak­ing pho­to­graphs of your Vauxhall can be a tricky busi­ness. Poor light­ing, in­cor­rect cam­era set­tings, ad­verse weather and clut­ter in the back­ground of your shot can be un­wanted con­tribut­ing fac­tors mak­ing your best pics look less like what you’d see on the cover of a mag­a­zine and more like the kind of snap you’d find buried in the clas­si­fieds.

Thank­fully, tech­nique is some­thing you can im­prove greatly with a few point­ers from a pro. The beauty of it is you al­ready have the car, a lo­ca­tion can be al­most any­where you feel like park­ing, and we’re pretty sure you’ll have some­thing to take a photo with, even if you’ve only got a smart­phone to hand. And un­like mas­ter­ing por­trait or wildlife pho­tog­ra­phy, your sub­ject isn’t go­ing to wan­der off – it’ll sit pa­tiently un­til you’re sat­is­fied you’ve got the money shot!

The hints and tips we’ve com­piled across the fol­low­ing pages are aimed at the keen am­a­teur who wishes to cap­ture good pho­to­graphs of his or her Vauxhall. We’re keen to see how you get on af­ter read­ing what we’ve printed on the fol­low­ing pages, so be sure to share the pho­tos you’ve taken of your pride and joy by email­ing them to [email protected]­media.co.uk or by up­load­ing them to our Face­book page. We can’t wait to see what you’ve got to show us!
