Interested in having your car featured on our blog or social media channels? We would love to check out your vehicle and learn more about it! Here are some tips and tricks on how to make your car stick out from the crowd.

For photos of the dashboard and gauges, lighting is key. Park somewhere that you have an even amount of light across the dash and try to minimize glare on the face of the gauge. Also, make sure to clean your gauges before taking photos of them. Oftentimes, they will look great from a distance, but the camera can pick up dust even better than the naked eye.

For exterior photos, show the entire vehicle with minimal distractions in the background. Scenic backgrounds are always a plus!

For all images, make sure that they are not blurry and a large image size. We prefer an image size of at least 1200x800 pixels, but larger is always better. When taking photos, try to minimize the number of shadows in the photo. Early morning or late afternoon is the best time for taking photos in natural lighting.

Looks aren’t the only thing that matters! We love a car with a story. If your car has an interesting background, make sure to tell us about it. Tell us how you got into cars, what made you pick this one, any goals you would still like to accomplish and anything else interesting! Here’s a basic checklist of the information to include:

  • Your name
  • Vehicle year, make and model
  • List of modifications
  • Interesting stories

The more information and photos we have, the better! Email your submissions to blog@autometer.com.
