Hello all. Currently, I'm having the itch to do more light painting . Here you'll see my results of 2-3 images to make these composites. My light source is a shop light with tubes plugged into my vagabond. Any feedback to help improve upon the lighting would be much appreciated.

The actual light coverage looks really good. Nice job lighting the top of the car. A lot of people forget that part. lol

The asphalt could use some cleaning and the highway sign in the second pic needs to go!

Nice work here but... And this is only my opinion. Get a baseline image for the asphalt first. All that black vignette on the asphalt doesn't look any good. You PP is clean. I would just look for that next time. Other than that. Great work.

In this shot, you can see the brush marks from PP. Other than that, great job! I would like to get some light painting put together as well.

PS - The last shot (side shot) is (imo) your best one! It looks really good! Compliments the bodylines very well.

I think it looks pretty good man. Nicely done.

I do agree on the asphalt, would probably be better to get a nice even baseline exposure of it and the layer in the lit vehicle to give it a more natural look.

With regards to running the light off of your vegabond.. I would be cautious to do that often, from what I remember in my years of owning the original and then mini, they say not to run a constant power draw source through that battery, like on the alien bee strobes it had you disable the tracking light which turned on a lightbulb to simulate the flash exposure, just a thought.

Nice job on the lighting. The curves and reflections look nice clean and even.

I do remember reading on the original Vagabond and mini that continuous lighting was not recommended. I thought it was more about how it'll drain the battery very quickly, which it does. Currently using a Vagabond 2, but also own a mini. I've accidentally left a modeling light on and killed my battery before during an daytime shoot of RV chassis which caused me to scramble to find a power source. Thankfully everything worked out, but I never made that mistake again, LOL.

The first two images work well for me. Great lighting over the car (though a pass over the far side of the car in No2 would be better) you just need to look at the background more to create an all round interesting image.

I like to do a seperate exposure for the headlights too
