Black BMW M3 E92 Coupe by Leon Tang
Thinking of a dream car for some may be something like this. A black BMW M3 on some awesome wheels, combined with some performance modifications get you one awesome ride. With M3’s coming out these days like they are given away, we cannot but think that people should be getting more customization, to get their cars some personality and class. It has always been a man’s desire to be different, better and original than the others. So it is with cars, whether you are proving that by getting a new set of wheels, different body color, some small details like the ///M badge being colored like the German flag, or some other thing that keeps you standing out in the crowd.
The upgrades on this car feature:
- Vorsteiner CF Bootlid
- Matte Black Kidney and Side Grills
- Tinted Turn Signals

When you have a car that’s original in any way, looking like this one, you gotta have some nice photography done by someone whose talented, professional and can bring the cars beauty and performance.

Photography in my life was nothing more than a engrossing thing to chatter about. A few of my family members were into it and one derived into a professional. I decided to buy a DSLR camera and step into the world of photography when I was 16 hence my first car. Being interested in photograph was simply to “showcase” or “showoff” my car on the forums and on the Internet. At first, I knew nothing about cameras… My girlfriend, who was very into photography due to the influence of her older brother, taught me all about the basics. However, since I was such a brand-name-whore, I thought to myself… SONY! Not long after the thought of buying one … I picked up a Sony Alpha-100 with 1 standard zoom lens and 1 telephoto lens. When I first got it, I just shot in random modes and settings. For the next twelve months, I advanced nowhere, I learned nothing and I was still very new to photography. About a year and 1/2 after my first car, being the spoiled brat that I was, got a new car. This time around, I really wanted to get some “professional” shots of my car. So I dug deep into my very limited photography knowledge (Aperture, Shutter Speed, Exposure, Metering, Focal Analysis …) and finally got some considerable shots. Before I realized… I was shooting for other people and expanded my photostream on Flickr. Not too long after I realized that I have hit the limit of potential on the Alpha-100, I knew it was time to upgrade.
There are no other cameras out there that intrigue me the way the new Canon did… EOS 5D Mark II.
I thought to myself … Go big or go home… So I arranged a few things and boom!
Spankin’ new products were in my hands to utilize and get creative …
5D MARK II + 24-105mm f/4 L USM Lens (Superb all-around)
Battery Grip + new SanDisk 16GB CF Card
a few other small accessories
Now, I am able to take on shots that I never even dreamt of … The low-light capabilities are stunning and flagship presentable..
Check out my shots and here is where I am today …
