^have an example of that?

After thinking about it...It would be difficult to keep the wheels from being screwed up from the strobes. Blurred, but with a nice imprint of the spokes.

I love that this thread is called "The automotive strobist setup pic thread", and very few show their setups lol. Some great shots anyway!!

I know the few pics I've posted and i'm sure some other peoples are made from quite a few pics....did you really want people to post 10 pics for every finish one they post? I feel like it would be boring to just see the same pics a bunch of times with lights moved all around it. This thread seems to have shifted more towards just flash photography with cars in general, not just setup pics.

I guess if you are just doing a single exposure it would make sense and be easy to post up a setup shot, just saying this isn't always realistically possible. ;)

I totally understand what you are saying, just thought the whole point of the thread had kind of got lost...There are 1000 threads with car photos in them. At least give the people an idea of what you did to get the photos..."This is a composite of 10 photos lit with (pick you tool)...Etc.I go with the flow here and still enjoy looking at the great photos in this thead (any way it is done), I just like to see (or read) how some of these great photos are lit :-)Carry on with your sweet photos however you see fit, it was just a thought I had at the time :-)

Oh, and 03DigitalBath, that comment was not directed at you, it just happened to be after one of your posts. I had just looked at about 20 pages or more when I posted that :-)

I understand not posting pics for stacked images...but I seriously LOVE seeing the images of the lights set up. Even if you don't mention power, the distance of the light from the car, it's position around the car, it's height, and angle are all very small, but important details that are very helpful in breaking down their effects on the way the car is illuminated.

I am actually going to try this in the next week or so to shoot my dreaded black Vette. I figure if I build somewhat of a TP around it (going along the sides and connected at the top), then have my strobes high on each side, it might work out. I will have the white paper behind it, then a lagre softbox or something in front. If it works I will post it on here.

Ha, me too :-). I get back home this Thursday so I might get a chance to try it out over the weekend. I guess I will post the setup here even if it does not work out so well as maybe y'all will be able to help me figure out how to do it better.
