I've seen some strobist flash lighting setup photos in different threads. It'll be great to build a thread with some setup photos and maybe share tips and discuss the setups. Post as much info you can as well as the resulting image.

I'll start:

Result:

1 x Cactus KF36 camera left - full power, lighting the side of the car
1 x Cactus KF36 camera right - full power, lighting the front of the car

Post yours!

Good idea. Be sure to show how you'd shoot a black car. ;)

Yeah if someone could help with black cars that would be great. Black is super hard to shoot at night and with strobes.

Let's get some more setup shots and discussion!

Next time I take my [Black] car out for some low-light shots, I'll post a set up pic. Unless the end result is too embarrassing:lol:
