Most die-cast enthusiasts, such as myself, love taking close-up pictures of their die-cast models amidst a white background, in order to bring the viewer's focus to the details of the car. I would usually bring the camera as close as possible to the die-cast model so that the car would fill up most of the picture. And if there are certain details on the car that I would like to highlight, such as the tampos, wheels, etc, I would take a very close macro shot of the respective parts. This particular die-cast enthusiast from however, tends to do things a bit differently.

Yes, all of the cars in the pictures above are die-cast scale models (mostly 1:18). But they look just like the real thing! And what's even more amazing, he's not using an expensive DSLR or some special photography equipments. He's just using this:

Can you believe it? A Vivitar 3.3 megapixel camera? I'm using a Nikon 7.1 megapixel camera, and my pictures look like shit. This guy is amazing!

So there you go, proof that you don't need an expensive DSLR or some fancy photography equipments to take good pictures. For more jaw-dropping pictures and some photography tips, go to his website at
