Re: Chopped Trucks

That means they want more money.

I have two accounts the mr48Chev which I pay a chunk of change every year and another one that is older that I usually stick photos for family members to find but the expense of two is getting to be more than I want to deal with plus having to switch back and forth at times.
I finally did figure out how to contact them.

Re: Chopped Trucks

I have gone to using Smugmug for my car show albums and some family related albums. Still an annual fee for the space I use but it is a lot easier for the viewers to use.

Re: Chopped Trucks

maybe its the photo angle, but does the back of the cab look lower than the front?

Re: Chopped Trucks

its poor background discipline in the photo, the hill behind it is running down to it. also the pole growing out of the hood and all the wires, and the wall colors. and the truck seems to be pointing downhill. terrible photo.

remember 3 steps to take better pictures:

1. get higher or lower: take even a small step stool and aim down, or lay on the ground and aim up.

2. background and foreground discipline: keep poles out of the subject, a 2d photo doesnt show depth as well as reality so it looks like they are growing out of the subject. choose an even backdrop, a brick wall, a pile of dirt, etc. clean the ground between you and the subject, watch for cracks or tracks or trash.

3. interesting angle: I am a big fan of the 45 degree/ corner shot where you get all the front/back and all of one side in the picture. pictures from the side only or front only arent very interesting. tilting the camera is even worse.

Re: Chopped Trucks

That black one is cut 2-1/2 or 3 as mine is cut 4 and the window opening is a lot shorter than that one.

I must agree; doesn't look like 6" to me (feel free to commence with the "that's what she said" jokes).

Re: Chopped Trucks

This is my buddy Jim Rosen's 48 with a 5 inch chop. I helped him chop it.

Re: Chopped Trucks

Here's a before shot of the windshield. You can just see the chalk lines on the passenger post.



And after hitting it with an axe 6 1/2 times. (I thought it was 6" but I actually took 6 1/2" out of it.
