Hey guys,

I know the composition isn't the best so can you please give me C&C on my lighting. One bare 285HV.

Thank you!!

C&C on my lighting.

It's OK, but doesn't inspire me. I'd rather see #1 without the strobe, or maybe with it aimed at the ground to the left of where you were standing.

When you use strobes, the secret is to aim the strobes down from above. In the pictures you posted, the light is too direct and doesn't give enough light in a lot of spots.

I feel like it's pretty difficult to use one strobe on a car when it's pretty dark out. try changing the location up and get that hot spot out. Awesome attempt though.

On my monitor the lower parts of the car are so dark I get no details. At the risk of sounding redundant, aiming the lights lower should help this.

Thanks for the comments!! Next time I will be going out when there is a bit more light and raise the light up a little higher. I knew that I might have needed another flash, but wanted to see how I would do with 1, which in my opinion wasn't too bad, but it could definitely be better!

Thanks again for the comments!!

Yes, a little earlier, raise the light up a little higher & turn it off.
