    Had a car shoot on last night, decided to share a few of them :) Wasn't very happy with the location (far too much ambient light), but I didn't have much choice =/

    Rest can be viewed at http://www.danielgphoto.com/090207 - Don't mind the screwed up watermark :(

    #4 is gold. Did you use long exp with multiple bursts of flash? images have nice highlights to them.

    Light painting. Same technique that tangcla uses. Jaycar 63 LED work light shooting into a 60x60cm soft box. 30s exposure and then you just 'paint' the car with the light.

    Effectively, yeah. It's just a constant light source. You could use anything, only problem is the colour temperature of different sources.

    Mind posting a photo of the lighting rig you used?
    Really interested in the LED light painting box you mentioned.

    Freaking love the Rexies, nice pics!

    #2 - would be epic if you could rotate the wheel so the STi centrecap was level :)

    Here are two (bad) shots of the rig: http://www.danielgphoto.com/ocau/090110/HA2P3568.JPG & http://www.danielgphoto.com/ocau/090110/HA2P3569.JPG

    The light is this one: http://jaycar.com.au/productView.asp?ID=ST3126
    The softbox is from eBay, not sure which one. Got it from tangcla.


    You mean err, like this? ;)

    Yeah, that's what I'm talkin' bout. :)

    Honda used to be a real stickler for it. I remember looking through the brochures for the Civic, Accord and CRV from the late 90's and seeing that in their still shoots, any easily visible wheel caps would be straightened.

    It just shows that extra .01% of attention to detail IMO.

    I notied it after I was looking at them on my site. Changed it, but didn't upload.

    It really does make that difference to the shot though!
