Or Dave could just ignore Flamey and become King of the Docks. :p

Now there's a good new forum tag.   :)

Good advice.  I need to do this too.  Problem is most of my preferred locations are a 1 hr drive from CBD.  Any suggestions for finding good urban spots?

Depends on how bold you can be in dictating what members of the public do in public.   :D

My LP560-4 shoot (http://www.flamestone.com/gallery/automotive/car-reviews/lamborghini-lp560-4) was done right next to the CBD, and we had to shuffle the car 4 different times to let other cars use the road, plus ushered onlookers away when they showed up in reflections...

But the stock of good places I store in my head are all the same, with interesting textures, lighting etc, and with varying degrees of "public" included.   :?

So maybe the thing to add is not only different times of day and different weather for lighting, but also different times of day (business, after hours, weekend) to know the vehicle and foot traffic conditions.

I have a few favourite spots too that I will use when time is limited or I've run out of ideas.

However I try to mix it up to keep things interesting, and also pick a location that suits the particular car I'm shooting.

I'm always looking, whenever I'm driving or walking around I scout of potential locations - and if I find one I mark it on my iPhone map and revisit later when I have more time.

So not from the seat of the Ducati?   :)

I think you mean MV Agusta. ;)

But no, too busy concentrating on the idiots in cars to think about photo locations!

Oops!  Sorry my last 3 bike conversations were about Ducatis.  On the brain now...

Good to hear.  Means you should be around long enough for at least one more shoot.   :thumbsup:
