I don't quite follow how you took that shot using that set up, surely you; or at least the camera if remotely triggered would be between the light and the car thus causing shadows/silhouettes inside? How did you overcome this? or is this not the shot you took with that set up?

Passenger door was open and the camera was set underneath the light.

I regularly shoot (interiors) with the camera in front of a softbox and as long as the soft box is large enough then there are no shadows. It's not like using strobes without modifiers where you get strong shadows. Blocking a part of a softbox tends to just reduce the amount or intensity of the light.

Basically the same setup as Caspita, softbox either side just with speedlites.

That flare is just too distracting. You should have backed up and turned to the left a bit.

For the brighter interior how do you get it to show the illumination on the floor and dash without the flash over coming it?

More than likely its multiple exposures blended together.

I actually added it in post, I felt it added at the time probably could have done without it lol

Ive tried doing multiple exposure and layers. Question is how do you get them to match up (how do you edit the layers and etc)? Do you just erase with a medium sized feather?

Layer masks are you friend here. With some nice soft brushes, you can match pretty evenly. :cool:

I stared with the base photo for the background, then added to that. On each side of the car, with each individual photo.
