How to Photograph Cars For Sale

Tip #1 – What kind of camera to use?

These days cameras on phones are adequate and do the job very well. But if you have a D-SLR in hand I would take that option, as these cameras are built solely to get the most crip and vivid colors of the foreground.

Tip #2 – Clean car inside out

Make sure your car is clean on the outside, inside, and engine bay. People respond better to something shiny and a clean car is the best presentation you can give your advert.

Tip #3 – Clear Location & Daylight

Choose a location that is not busy with activity, such as people, traffic, or anything eye-catching that will distract the viewer from the foreground which is your car.

Tip #4 – Photo Angles

If you are limited in photographs because the platform you are advertising has a limit of example 5 photographs, I would recommend the following angles:

  1. Front Left 3/4
  2. Rear Right 3/4
  3. Interior – Dashboard, and Part of Seat
  4. Engine Bay
  5. Closeup of Speedo or Other Accessories that are included with the car
