Default New Turn Signals + New Camera = Pics

About a month ago I finished the front end of my car with a set of black housing turn signals from eBay. Saturday I picked up my first DSLR, a Canon T2i Rebel, so today I went out and took some pics of my girl.

The car is almost finished on the exterior. I'm still planning on doing a GT500 rear bumper and possible a stripe in the next year. Any comments on the pictures or for my next mod post it up.

Edit: Wow photobucket killed the quality of those pics. :/

Tanner,
Congrats on the new camera! I have a Canon SLR too and I love it! If you ever have any questions about using it or anything just shoot me a pm.

I went ahead and retouched one of your pics for you (force of habit) : p

Good Job, Tanner! I see you bought the camera. I like photos 2,3, and 4. You really applied the "rule of thirds" there

When you can get yourself a polarizing filter. It will change the way your camera sees light, especially when you are doing daytime photography. Plus, you will be able to control reflections and glare better.

Good Job!

Thanks, Hotwheel. Matte would go good with the side skirts and chin spoiler.
Its between black or white.

Thanks for the chop, Reaper! It looks great.

Thanks, Kzonts.

Thanks, Eddie. Hit up CL you can find damn good deals on these cameras... that is if you can hold off on your car mods.

Thanks for your advice, OIIIIO. I'll have to look into some filters and a new lens. I could see this becoming addicting. Haha

Looks really good Tanner! Love those side markers. As far as stripes go, I'd say go for the black stripes. Is black on red a little plaid out? Maybe, but it's that way for a reason. It looks good! And I think with such a bright red body, a matte black stripe would look better than an equally bright white stripe.

Now, if I'm not mistaken, you are still planning on doing a future V8 swap? And if I remember correctly, you already have the 8.8 with 3.55s, right? I think you need to toss that rear end on first, then go with the gt500 rear bumper and finish it up with exhaust for now. Then grab the stripes! That'll be one BA looking ride.

NICE PICS

I've been eyeing a few different styles of turn signals on eBay.
Seeing these pics sold me on the clear lens/black housing combo.
Any pics of them with the signals/running lights on?

Thanks, guys. She is finally coming along.

Mad, I think you are right. My husband is pushing for white stripes because he thinks its more classic, but I'm thinking black would be aggressive.
Yes I do have an 8.8 sitting in the garage. We will be installing that next month. For now I'm actually leaning toward SC'ing in the next year or so. If I did a V8 swap I would almost have to get a little beater DD because we would do the install ourselves. For now I just don't want to deal with it. Plus I can get the SC'er sooner.

H-H-YAH, I don't have any right now, but I can get a few this evening and post them.

I might be in the minority here, but I like white stripes on Torch Reds.

I'd say that's pretty smart, Tanner. I don't think the beater would be worth it unless you're using it on a regular basis, and I've never been a fan of a garage kept ride unless you have a long commute for work every morning. What's the point of owning such an amazing car and only being able to drive it on the Sundays? haha. Can't wait to see some pics/vids of your ride with a s/c
