I use a 50mm 1.8 lens. This lens is perfect for outdoor scenes. Select the smallest possible aperture between 1.8-2.8.

[title]The best light[/title]
We’ve all heard about “magic hour” those hours around sunrise and sunset that produce the best natural-light photography. Not only does the lighting direction change throughout the day, but the color changes as well, from cool before sunrise to warm just after sunrise. These are the best moments for your classic car photo!

So if you want to improve your classic car shot do not just look only at the car, but look around it to be sure that your reflection is not visible in the car . Good luck!
