a ricer angle on an El Camino
Yay or Nay?
nay sorry.. but i have a big thing against ricers/ricer angles/lowlikearicer
I think it would be better if it was coming up at you, rather than rolling down a hill
'tis a bit too rice. I vote nay.
Slightly less angle on the photo and a background without strong vertical lines would help considerably.
I tried it with a straight horizon but I actually think it looks more aggressive at an angle; it brings out the rear lines.
Here's a normal shot
Bland and boring, imo
You can make it not bland and boring without making everyone turn their head all cockeyed to look at the screen. Look at some professional magazines and their shots. You can get low to the ground, a shot from up high like on a ladder, shot's with the car at a different angle than that, etc. etc.
Ricer angles are for photographers with little imagination or creativity.
I like 2 alot better than 1
I don't consider that to be ricer angle. its the ones where you have to invert your upper torso in order to view the car as it should be seen. a small degree of level isn't bad for automotive photography.
Tell him to order a replacement set of BFG drags, because those ones are on their last leg. Ask me how I know lol.
I like the "ricer" angle much better than a straight shot, at least for this picture. Looks good man!
2nd looks better.
They are Mickey Thompson Drag Radials, that's about all the tread they have on them even when they are new.
A few more pics:
To me there is just too much going on in the background of the 1st pic. To many lines...I like the second better.
Is it quick?
What's in it?
I don't know too much about domestic cars. He told me mods but most of it is greek to me. Cams, lifters, ignition & fuel stuff, etc. Runs low 13s @ 103-105 mph.
That's not bad.
Pics of engine?
Any idea what this does?
He probably has a big cam. That makes the engine vacuum low.
The reserve is to keep the brake booster working.
needs more miata
Ahh yes, the MT drags. They are pretty treadless even when new.
