ford CONTEST TIME: We want to see your best pics of #FORDdogs.
Have you ever thought your dog would shine on Instagram? Well, this is your chance. We’re working with Theron Humphrey (@thiswildidea), who is not only an awesome photographer (and dog dad), but the guy who can make it happen. If he picks your dog’s photo, he’ll come to your place (in a #Ford) to do a photo shoot of your pooch. One of those shots will then appear on our Instagram feed. (And if you don’t know how amazing he is at taking pics of his coonhound, Maddie, go to his profile NOW. This shot of her taking in the sunset from the back of an #F150 is just one example.) Here’s how to enter:
Make sure you’re following @thiswildidea and @ford so we can message you if you win.
Post an original photo of your dog with the following in the caption: #FORDdogs, #FORDcontest and this link to the rules (also in profile): http://ford.to/1bClxJ9
Go to @thiswildidea to see a few tips on what Theron’s looking for in the winning dog photo.
NO PURCHASE NECESSARY. (A Ford doesn’t HAVE to be in the picture.) 18+ Contest begins on 3/27/15 at 2:30 p.m. EDT and ends on 3/29/15 at 11:59 p.m. EDT. For full rules, click on the link in our profile.

ford "Originally the car was supposed to be sold for college fund money within 2 years, but shortly after we started the restoration I received a full tuition scholarship. With no need to sell the car, we took our time and meticulously went piece by piece. All said, it was about 4.5 years to the end result.
Some of my favorite memories with my dad come from our classic Ford Motor Company vehicles. Did you catch his 1971 Torino hiding in the background of [the] picture? He restored that car when I was about 1 year old. We are both diehard blue oval fans.” - Michael McCormick

Tag your classic Ford with #FordTBT for a chance to have your story and photo featured.

ford We want to see your best pics of #FORDkids.
If anyone has a sense of adventure, it’s kids. So buckle them up and follow the tracks of Instagrammer Dirk Dallas (@dirka). He took his two girls on a road trip to Yosemite in a #Ford #Edge and wrangled their cuteness through his lens. Follow his tips below as you cruise around town or into the wilderness with your mini-mes, and don’t forget to tag your photos with #FORDkids. Dirk will help us pick the best ones to showcase next week.
_______________________________________________________

Hi, everyone, this is @dirka, and I am here to share some of my favorite tips for taking pictures of kids.
Kids can be difficult subjects because they tend to be squirmy and uninterested. I say, skip the word “cheese” and just let them be! Follow them around as they explore and let THEM run things instead of you. For example, in this shot it was my daughter’s idea to jump off the rock, and I went with it.
Next, I would encourage you to get down to their level, literally. Try bending down to their eye level, or even lower, to see the world as they do. To get this shot I ended up completely flat on the ground so I could get a more unique angle.
Position them so that they are in front of the main source of light, such as the sun. Doing this is called “backlighting.” This creates a nice glow or halo type effect around your subjects so they pop off the background.
Lastly, be patient and keep it fun. Find a beautiful location and wait for the “golden hour” just before the sun completely sets. The colors are more orange and red and the light is softer than the harsh light of midday. This creates the perfect lighting for taking photos of kids who will be moving from one thing to the next.
Thanks for following along and I’d love to see photos of the young ones in your life using some of these tips! Be sure to tag your photos #FORDkids.

ford “I think a lot of people who don’t work in engineering feel like it’s overwhelming – that you go walk into a room and there’s more men than women. That is not a stereotype that’s going to go away any time soon, but I would tell you that that doesn’t really matter. Right? If you love cars, if you love what you do, you love the people you work with – that’s what drives you to come to work. Not that there are more men in the office than women.” - Johanna Slanga, Vehicle Integration Supervisor, #Ford #Edge

  •   todd_rich Lol what a pos fusionstang. Flat plane design really fucked up the 5.0. Yeah it revs up to higher rpms but it revs slower, loses power after driving for little while, and sounds more ricy. Also looks like a fusion. Only thing flat plane does then is get rid of engine rumble and vibration in cockpit, so it rides smoother. Which is the whole point of owning a muscle car. 2w

ford Not every 17-year-old gets out of school and heads to the racetrack to hone their driving, but Michelle Bongiovanni does. She's won two championships at Englishtown Raceway Park and has several final round wins. Now she's going head to head against herself, testing out the track apps on the 2015 #Ford #Mustang.

Click the link in our bio to see if they give her the competitive advantage she's looking for this #MustangMonday.

ford It’s almost spring and we want to see your best #FORDcolor pics.
We’ve teamed up with Jessica Zollman (@jayzombie) again, but this time she took a #Ford #Fiesta out to the desert to find a good shot of color to wake up your feeds. Follow her tips below to make your shots more vibrant, and don’t forget to tag them with #FORDcolor. Jessica will help us pick the best ones to showcase next week (just in time to usher winter out!).
______________________________________

I love capturing bright colors in unique and unusual places. It's a very welcomed challenge in places like sun-bleached Los Angeles or the deserts of Joshua Tree. Here are some tips for capturing color and your car:

1. Those of you with a colorful Ford may think you have it easy, but I'd like to challenge you. Try to capture close-up details of your vehicle's color or shoot a colorful scene, like a vibrant sunset, through your windshield or rearview mirror instead.

2. Seek out a unique location, like a wall with colorful graffiti or brightly painted buildings. Don't just park your Ford parallel to the bright backdrop — try to play with interesting angles. Or, try to capture the building's reflection on your car.
3. If you need to create bright colors where there typically are none, try to incorporate people wearing vivid clothes or use multicolored props like rainbow umbrellas or colorful camping tents.

Sometimes the broadest themes are the most challenging. Don't get discouraged! Just keep both eyes open for colorful photo opportunities, and don't forget to tag your photos with #FORDcolor.
