I would be more concerned with the readings right at the box surface as that is what will create the reflections on the car ... and get the Seconic up and running with the dome retracted before messing around much.


I will get readings that way too and see what I get

did some more testing and looks like the largest variance i have is 1/2stop with my meter about 6in below the diffusion material... will def add an inner diffuser to even it out more.. but def a good start

gotta work on the floor and walls not but did a few test shots to see how the light works.. def happy with the setup.. not a single hot spot like i typically get shooting cars.. car was lightly edited in LR with some clarity contrast adjustments only

It should be interesting to see how well the glossy floor works for you.
