It had to happen eventually. I’m an Opponaut, as are many others on here, which is why this week’s mission, should you choose to accept it (and you should) is:

Take a photo of a car.

Big car, small car, real car, toy car, any car will do. For example:

I snapped this photo about twenty minutes ago as I was frantically trying to find a better lead image than a Civic. Fun fact: there are no original Cobras remaining. All of them are kit cars. Probably. Shot this with my D70s and the 18-70 mm lens attached.

And now, as much as we love to ignore them, The Rules:

1. You can submit one or two photos for this challenge. You can submit in a number of ways:

  • Post it via Kinja comment
  • Post it to a photo sharing site such as Flickr, 500px, et cetera, then link it back here in a comment.
  • Send photos to my e-mail at leducthecanuck [at] (you know how to format). Have this week’s challenge as your subject header, and be sure to include your blurb and username so I know who to credit these to. Also, include a link to your Kinja, since we usually link those in the galleries.
  • Take a photo of the car. Then steal the car and give it to me, so I can better appreciate it in person.


2. The deadline is 23:59 EST on Sunday. The exhibition post will be up some time on Monday. Each week’s new mission will be posted on Monday.

3. This is not a judged competition. This is just for fun and to show of our work.


4. With your submission please tell us about the photos. Your gear, the settings, any edits, and a bit about the car, if you feel so inclined.

5. Any camera is welcome, even phone cameras. I would prefer for people to not use automatic modes, but I accept that composition/etc. will still produce a good photograph with the camera in automatic mode. Editing is allowed.


These missions are intended to be fun, and to give people a reason to get out and shoot. I would like for positive discussion to come about from these, as well as to increase the participation on Photography Kinja. I know there are a lot of new people here that are participating, so I look forward to their contributions!

I will take suggestions on the next week’s mission objective.

Now, go on and complete your mission!
