Beautiful Subaru's



Hello viewers!
Many of you have probably been wondering where are the posts?
It been nearly 2 months!

I have chosen to take a different approach with the blog, I will no longer post a single picture of a Subaru on the blog and posts will be once a week but hopefully more often on here. I will now only post:

-Viewers Subaru’s (Pictures sent in by the owner)
-Other features, I may choose to do a feature on a specific Subaru or set of cars
-My own photography work and viewers photography work with Subaru’s

I suggest if you would like more updates to follow the Facebook Page where I have been uploading pictures of Subaru’s every other day or so.

Here are some pictures that have been posted on the Facebook page in the last while:

Swagbaru #176 – Colin’s WRX

Here is Colin’s 05 WRX, these are beautiful photos and I would like to thank Justin from TwentyPSI for them.

Colin had just recently graduated High School and wanted to put some mods into his WRX so he worked over the summer and was able to get a complete custom 3′ turbo back exhaust along with a set of XXR 527 rims. In my opinion these rims are beautiful and you can never go wrong with them especially for the price. You will also notice it has an STi wing.

Swagbaru #175 – Jesse’s Slammed Forester Update

You may remember this wagon since I posted it nearly 2 months ago. Since then Jesse has been hard a work and within that time has added quite a bit to the car. It now sits on 17×8 Rota Boost’s with 3/8″ spacers on ’06 WRX struts with Tein Springs. Other additions include a GTspec roll center adjustment kit as well as Rallytech adjustable rear sway bar and endlinks.

Swagbaru #174 – Wagon Wednesday Vol. 41

I apologize for the lack of posts, I’m busy with school again ):
Here is Max’s 2011 STi Hatch in Satin White Pearl

Swagbaru #173 – Fall BRZ Shoot

Walking to class one day I saw a beautiful BRZ parked. I decided to leave a note for the owner and I wanted to set up a photoshoot. Some time later I finally found a spot and a time. I decided on Waterloo Park and when I went the parking lot was close to empty and it seemed like a perfect spot with the fall trees. After heading there with Gary (BRZ Owner) this Monday The parking lot was full. We were lucky to find a bunch of empty spaces which we could use. It was around 4:45 when we started and the sun was starting to set creating the weird lighting and shadows. At the time of shooting I thought the photos would look great but after looking at them on my computer I wasn’t happy with the lighting, shadows and many cars in the background. I decided to choose the best of the best so here they are.

Gary’s BRZ currently has BC Racing coilovers dropping the car, he has plasti-dipped his rims as well as added a Grimmspeed FT86 oil cap. Gary plans to do more to the car come Spring such as an Indivia exhaust and new rims.

Although I feel like this is some of my best work so far, I see many flaws in the pictures and I now know where to improve on them next time, I feel that I’m finally starting to progress with Automotive Photography.

Ok this post will now be posted later than I wished, last night I uploaded the photos to Flickr and posting them on here resizes them and they either get cut-off or are too small. Ontop of that the files are large and I’m having trouble uploading them to wordpress as well as Imgur so I will have to have smaller pictures. If you would like to see them larger on Flickr go here.

Swagbaru #172 – Wagon Wednesday Vol. 40 Matt’s Forester

I first met Matt in June at Stretch & Poke’s Fitted 2012. As you could imagine the Subaru population at a stanced based event is not huge. Matt along with Ben came over to see us (Myself, along with 2 other subies) when we first arrived. They told us about their site Flatbroke Status and their shared passion for Subaru’s. I was glad to see some Subie love at the event. I continued to see Matt and Ben around at other Subaru Meets such as Toronto Subaru Club’s Spring Fling. Matt and Ben have done a amazing good job of coverage of events and features on their website Flatbroke Status make sure to check out their posts with their newly updated website along with their Facebook Page.

Now for the part about the car:
At Fitted I still had my Forester and Matt was telling me about his and how he had recently dropped it. I was eager to see pictures of it and in person and got to at Spring Fling. Matt, like myself, is a lover of wagons and didn’t know what wagon to buy, thankfully Ben convinced him to go for a Subaru. Matt’s Forester is his daily driver with the intention to go as low as he can. He plans to go lower come spring and is looking for 2-3inches of ground clearance if possible. Matt’s Forester is lowered thanks to a set of DGR coilovers and gave him a 4″ drop so far from stock height. He has also recently acquired a set of Rota DPT’s in 18×9.5 +20. Matt’s Forester has been dubbed the “moving billboard” for Flatbroke Status due to all the vinyl. Matt would like to put more into the car but as I’m sure many of you know the Flatbroke life is to put all your money in your car. Although he would like to save up for a trip to Japan or start his project drift car. It is clear that Matt and the Flatbroke Status crew love the drift scene and they have had some wonderful coverage of drift events.

Further plans for the Foz include tubbing the fenders/wheel wells for more clearance. Some headers and an exhaust to give it some sound and possibly even a RWD conversion so that he can run a staggered wheel set up.

Thank you to Matt for taking these wonderful photos for me to post!

Here is a picture I took of Matt’s car in at Spring Fling

I decided this was a perfect post for Wagon Wednesday, all credit to Scraped Crusaders for the post and Deathlens for the photos!

Seems odd posting a subaru shoot from H20i.  But thats when happens when you’re friends with Matt Berenz.  I was able to convince him to take a few snaps of Trent’s bagged Impreza Outback, Brad’s Legacy GT and my own Legacy Brighton.  Unfortunately we did not have enough time at our first location to get enough shots of Trent’s Impreza.  At least we got one good family photo.

This thing has me considering bags.

Met my new Legacy bretheren Brad.  Helped me make up my mind on black side skirts.  I just need to find a rear valence now.
