After sitting in the car with my laptop reading this thread last night it gave me some inspiration to get out there and try some strobe shots!
Never tried it before and I'm pleased with the outcome! I still class myself as a begginer but I hope you enjoy these!

All I used was a tripod, Canon 450D and a 430EX (handheld :) )

Most of these were shot between 8 and 30 sec exposure and multiple flashes.

Anyway! C + C :)

Havn't had chance to look at them in photoshop yet. I'll play around with the RAW's and see what I can do :)

Would love to hear some advice and constructive critism
Thanks!

personally I hate the way car pics look when it is pitch black outside and you only have the flash illuminating the car. Ive tried a couple of times with my car that usually looks good from just about any angle.. but still was highly disappointed.. i love shooting strobes during sunset so i can play with ambient light for the background exposure..

here is an exsample that I am not overly happy with b/c we went out wayyy too late after my brother got his car back together:

IMAGE: http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5181/5548462905_ab7500c7f1_b.jpg

lighting was 3 flashes, 2 from each side, and one (cloned out) directly up front)

Canon 5Diii - Canon 24-70 2.8L - Canon 100 2.8L Macro - Sigma 50 1.4

I can see the Supra looking great in this without the shadows in the background. Perhaps one picture taken without flash so that you have a clean wall. Then add into PS?


I've just started using flash about last week and this is my 2nd time using it. Using a single flash with multiple layers combined into PS.

Flash placed on the ground angled up to light up each side of the bumper, then center of the bumper, and last threw it inside the car for fun to see what it would light up. :)

Does anyone know of a good program to use to stack the images instead of copy+pasting each layer onto each other?

It was time consuming, and thought maybe the potn community knew of something more efficient! :D

Photoshop CS5 has an align layers tool. Doing this kinda stuff takes time, I don't think there's an auto function that will give you the results you want.

All the Supra would need is a flash aimed at the rear wall to eliminate the shadows. Less time consuming than editing in a separate exposure.

Thank you very much :) I didn't know that CS5 had that function, and it definitely would have helped since 2-3 of the images were slightly off compared to the original and I had to nudge them back into the correct places.

Perfect! :) Agreed that is much easier than editing in the wall.
