Any tips on photographing vehicles please?
How does everyone here manage to take an undistorted photo of a vehicle from close up? When I measure up a vehicle, ideally I stand as far back as possible to take the photos, and use a long lens, to get the minimum distortion.
Moreover you want to take a square on front, sides, and back. Avoid artistic angles, because it just make it hard to use the pics as a design template. This way the pictures can be as good or better than drawn vehicle profiles.
Today I went over to measure up a coffee vending trailer for a new wrap design. It was parked in a driveway, and there was not enough room to photograph the back and one side, but it was impossible to move, so I could not get a good full on picture from these angles.
Do you take a series of pics and stitch them together, or do as I did and just measure up everything and just draw it? Or is there a program available that will “Undistort” a picture, or even a special lens?
