Default Another Car Shot

I returned to Alameda NAS, this time equipped with my wireless triggers. It results in much more work having to set-up stands and flashes, but it lets me do some cool things off-camera. This shot utilized 3 or 4 flashes, 1 (or 2) left of the camera aiming at the right (your left) side of the front, 1 at the left of the camera aiming at the hood, and 1 at the right of the camera aiming at the left (your right) rim. A polarizer was added to minimize windshield reflection, and an ND grad filter was used to add a little drama to the sky.

I think my work paid off.

Very nice results from your lighting set-up! Looks like it belongs in a brochure!

Guess it's time to break out the portable flashes and polish the Mustang. It will have to wait though, I am the Gander stage safety coordinator for the Targa Newfoundland Rally, so no time until Wednesday. http://www.targanewfoundland.com/

Just wondering, the vignetting, is it post processing or was it designed into the original lighting? Dramatic seems to be the word used here and I have to agree.

The vignetting was done in post. Here's a version without the vignette:
