    hi, my name is Bartek, I'm from Poland.
    I discovered airbrush again few months ago and I wanted take it seriously. I took the course, bought Iwata Eclipse and started training. As a motorcyclist I'm interested in custom/automotive painting. I'm glad I found this forum and I count on your support. So far, my profession is photography and i will be pleased if i could share some advice with you in this area if you need to.

    Hi Barto, welcome from the UK. Lots of friendly people, talent and learning here. I'm sure people will be happy to have a photographer around too. I know I struggle with photographing clear coated items.

    Post some of your pics in Open bar, where we talk about everything not airbrush related.

    Hope to see your airbrushing around here soon.

    Welcome from Australia Bartek,
    If you are a professional photographer the you already have a 'good eye' for what looks right. Now you just have to transfer that to paint and paper.

    I'm sure if you had some photographs that you'd be happy for people to use as references then we'd be more than happy to see them. We have a 'References' section on the forum that members upload interesting pictures that they think will help people when they're looking for something to paint.

    Macro images are popular.

    interesting faces, (eyes are poplar)
    animals / head shots of animal

    sometimes everyday objects can make interesting subjects eg: Wine glass, half full, minimal background but the glass has a lot of highlights.

    really anything that could be 'challenging' to those starting out, practicing textures / highlights etc.

    Not sure if that is really helpful, lol sometimes simple images can be as challenging as more complex ones.
