I am frantically searching for resources on how to shoot cars, trucks and motorcycles in the studio and on-location. I have been searching the web with little success. If anyone knows of any books or resources that will show set-up and technique please point me in the right direction.
I have booked a calendar shoot for 2005 and need to get all my research done in order to start work on the actual shoot.
Thanks for any info that can be shared.

I have shot a few cars in my day for people. And one thing that seems to stand out is the same rules go for shooting cars as with shooting beautiful models. If you are shooting on a black paved lot or road wet the area down and make sure it's clean. You wet down the area so it becomes darker in the images and just looks better. If your going to get a little crazy and have a model on the hood of the car she will have to be placed on it . Don't have her climb on to it. Make sure her body wieght is spred out over the hood.

There have been two or three articles in the "Tech" section of PDN that lay out the process of shooting automobiles. Unfortunately, they have made their site a "pay" site -- but the subscription is worth the $$$ and you'll be able to get the info you need.

Dman, can't find the magazine. I bought (or saw) a current photo magazine at Barnes & Noble that has an article about auto photography, check there.

I can't remember the title, but our local barnes & noble had a book in the photography section that discussed auto photography - it was around 150+ pages I think.
