The Jag is the winner for me.

Re: Still Life: Car Emblems

Is this a project? It would be fun (and challenging) to photograph as many of the interesting emblems one could find.

I suppose car shows would be one source...

The Chevy 327 brings back memories. How old is the car?

... not a formal project , just practicing seeing what is there and what the possibilities are.

Yes - car shows would be a good place, I attended some a few summers ago but was not as good at seeing detail

the car was a 67 Impala - I kicked this one out for the 327 to keep the set " emblems" give it a shot on a walk around - I did find that lacking an " exotic emblem" there's not so much excitement in my  Dodge Mini Van logo.

I tried the big silver Dodge Ram but it was dirty I think the right shot can work , a guy has to find it.

Nice Emblems!!

I've always liked the Jaguar leaping from the hood (or bonnet as the British say). As a kid my favorite was the XKE.

Hopefully some Ferrari and Lamorghini Emblems will show up.

Here's couple from Porsche.

911 997 Twin Turbo

Re: Still Life: Car Emblems

I'm partial to the black back ground one - thanks for posting, I tried more of an angled approach but your set convinces me that if its not a jag like hood ornament a straight on crest / badge type shot is probabyly best

Deadly Luis - I have not seen that logo before - it looks pretty swank.

Love the radial pattern.

Re: Still Life: Car Emblems

It was quite a huge street exhibition of cars. (i think that it is common summer action)
