I am trying to figure out a better light setup for me to take better photos at night at the drag strip. Right now I am using one 580exII in ETTL on the camera.
See attached pictures below. I take pictures in high speed burst mode given some faster cars do wheelies. You can see I had to take three pictures rather quickly on this one. I am thinking I have to stay with a canon speedlites given I need quick recycling time?
I have a 5D Mark III. This was shot at F5.6 3200 ISO 1/200 shutter speed. The photos were at 95mm. I was using my Canon 24-105MM F4 Lense.
You can see the front bumper receives most of the light. I would like to have more light on right side of the car, but there is good 30 feet I am thinking in distance traveled by this car. Any suggestions? I am thinking I am at least 40 feet away if not little more. Please help. Thank you.
I am not sure if I should add a bare flash on the right side on light stand. I just hate how the bare flash hits the car. It being so hard light. People talk about using soft boxes and not umbrellas for cars, but not sure if a speedlite will work with that. Also any monolight I am thinking is not up to task to cycle quick enough?
