6 Tips for taking the best Instagram pictures of your car:
1. Make sure to hand wash and polish your car before you start taking photos

So, it’s well worth taking the time to wash and polish your car by hand before you start taking photos of your car. After all the last thing you want is to get comments from others telling you to clean your car.
Make sure you also clean the tyres and rims of your car because if they are also dirty, they will not go unnoticed by your followers. You’ll also want to make sure you have a nice set of tyres on and not an old pair of winters. If you’re looking or interested more on tyres, Tyre City is a good place to check out for all you car needs and information.
2. Make sure that you have adequate lighting

However, if you ever find yourself wanting to take a photo of your car in the evening or at night, simply turn your car’s head lights on to illuminate your car or you can even try taking a photo of your car under a street lamp. If you want to take a photo of your car at night at home, simply turn the lights outside your home on to light up your car.
