Ive never shot cars with studio lights before, today my teacher drived this Subaru 360 to the school so I asked him to move it to near by fields so I could shoot it.

I used only one 50x50cm softbox as fill light from the right and everything else is natural light through the clouds.
PP in Photoshop (removed some trees from the background and also all sorts of spots in the hood and windshield) and Lightroom (color toning + vignette and small stuff).

I first thought I am gonna remove that shed on the background aswell, however when I did it it felt too clean and bit empty so I left it there.

6D with nifty fifty (best lens ever! :rolleyes:).
| 1/125s | F2.0 | ISO 100 |

C&C appreciated! :)

C'mon now. "almost" growing out of the fender is reaching.... I like the composition but I don't love the edit. Reminds me of what would happen if I turned the clarity slider up to 100 in LR.
