My Ride in

Forza Motorsport 3

One would think that having spent seven years working at Auto Trader, my soul drained steadily while pumping out car ad after car ad, would have destroyed my appreciation for car photos. But this is fortunately not the case. While I’ve produced tens of thousands of ads for various car dealerships in Ontario, I can still find car photography to be an art form – especially when I happen to like the cars being shot.

Here are some photos I took during a replay of a recent race of mine in Forza Motorsport 3. All told, I spent more time tinkering with camera placements and settings than I did in the entire race. The beautiful thing about the game is that it not only allows players to drive cars they probably never will in real life, but also allows them to pull off some great race photography.

    I do like this car with this paint job though.

  6. Pfft.

    That’s nothing compared to the e-mobile…

    Of course, that’s just an invention in my mind.

    @Mark – I believe the artist for that car is Mike White, who also drew and animated this video for The Meligrove Band:
