Do you have a pic of the car without the chick in it? I don't really like pics where the chick is hiding some of the car.


Now with added bokeh. (Good lenses are irrelevant, apparently. Just add bokeh and textures in post. It's the in thing.)

excellent image sigma pi, really like that lighting in general.

Question though on the octa, what size is that, kid of hard to get a good reference in the image. I'm thinking mid-high 30s? If so I'm rather impressed with such a small modifier giving such great light all around the leading edge of the car there, or was there a lot of post work on this? I see the other 2 at least modifiers in there going to the ceiling but The main work is being done by the octa there. I'm curious to see a before processing shot that shows what was taken out of the image. If that's possible to see that it would be really cool.

again, great work. Hope you are having a great weekend.

Thanks :D No problem, it is a different kind of car picture that is normally posted. Thought that would help show how to get those results. Glad to.

Thanks. It took a while to get it right. It is the elinchrom Deep octa 39" across the front.
There are actually 6 strobes on this shot.
1 Deep octa 500ws
1 Beauty dish with grid 500ws
2 pointing up to the huge flat each at 500ws reflectors
2 pointing to the back. each at 400ws reflectors

I probably needed another 2-3 strobes. I could not blow out the BG. I had to light it ass backwards. I had the flat lights and the BG lights on full blast. I had to adjust the main and rim accordingly.

Unfortunately I suck at post to be 100% honest. The car there were some problem spots with the head lights and a few small clones to take some of the dings out. I did not repaint the car in post. There is some post on the model though. 99.9 of post it seems was on the BG. I had to pixel peep because this is going to be a poster (later going to be an advertisement).

Sure give me a little bit. I just got back from racing my RC car :lol: so sorry for the late response.

But the deal is no model she would beat me up :lol:

wow, didn't realize there were that many strobes in there....

I'd really love to do a shoot like this one day and not have to make it a multiple exposure/compiled image.

One day I will have a nice amount of strobes.... right now I would love to have another einstein.....

Right now I only have one einstein, one 430ex II and one Vivitar 283, and damn that 283 pisses me off at time. recycle on it takes forever.... It can take up to 14seconds to go to full power...... I try not to use it....

as for the SOOC, why not just black the model out of the first one you posted? that way it's all good, I'm a little more interested in the rest as it is for that particular shot.

you can see the huge blown out highlight in the headlight. It is much easier for me to get it right in camera and have the placement right on the light. You can see her leg blocks the highlight in the one she is in. :)

The other thing is the highlight on the hood. I took that out too. Other than that you can see its just minor cleaning up of the car nothing really big.

that's pretty decent in general right there as a SOOC shot. you definitely worked on getting it right in camera that's for sure. I know it must of been a royal pain to get everything to line up and reflect right and all....

I am not good at PS. I wish I was better than I am. I cant compile them really well. They look pretty fake when i do it.
I did not own this many strobes at the time. I borrowed and begged. I only had 2 at the time. One of my assistants tripped over the chord and broke one. So I bought one right off the bat and bought another one a little while ago. So now I have 4.
At this shoot they were going to roll out the hot lights and these things were HUGE. I did not want to mix the temps so I went it under powered on the BG as you can see.

I cant stand the recycle time on my speedlight. I do use them for hair lights though in a pinch. They do a great job then because they are usually on a low power setting. :D At car shows they are good. I dont like lugging around strobes hehe.

Honestly the car looks the same in all of them. I can post it up later on in a day or two if you still want it.

Yeah the set up is great. I think I would give the edge to the place. Here is the deciding factor. On the left you will see what I plugged my strobes into. It was 220V so recycle time was fast. That was nice because everything except the lighting on the model was at full pop. There was a mountain of appleboxes. The stands, well they speak for themselves
