    we were hanging out and got bored so decided to do another shoot. im up to 2 strobes with poverty wizards and a have a third on the way. anyways this is my first time using flashes on a remote setup. i think having the third one will help keep it more balanced across the whole car but here are the best two. i tried to kind of devinize them

    The first one is pretty awesome. I'd PS the hard shadow lines though, they're a little distracting.

    I've shot with 2 before and it's possible to cover the whole vehicle if you work both the angle of the car and the angle of the flashes.

    Nice work. I was trying to shoot last night, but can't seem to find a new location.

    :wackit:

    I like the lighting and the angle of the car on #2 best. Although I would maybe darken the windshield to cover up the hotspots inside the cabin on the passenger side.

    I think #1 could have been better if the lighting wasn't so harsh. Also, I would rather it be completely profile or show a bit more of the front... it looks randomly placed, not very interesting to look at after first glance.

    I like the first one. Though to tell you the truth I would have like to see a tad more background and not just a black silhouette.

    Didn't I voice my opinion on the R32 in the main forum? Or was that not you?

    Holy shit, I never noticed that before :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: I've been handholding my flash while shooting, which makes it difficult... I do have an extra tripod though :eek3:
