    I need to watch One Light 100 more times. :wtc:

    Had it for a week, first time being able to break it out and tool around with it. It's funny, the video makes things so understandable but once I'm shooting I just go blank. :sad2:

    Oh well, rip 'em up.

    Number 3 was a loss, but since his car has been down for the swap for about 7 months, I tried my best to bring it back. I know it looks like doodoo.

    Number 5 tripped me out, white cars are a whole 'nother ballgame, apparently. :hs:

    Yeah, at this point in my hobby I like inanimate objects more than people. I'm not confident enough with my "skills" to feel like I'm no wasting someones time... :o

    They all pretty much look like snapshots :hs: If I had to pick the best pic it'd be #1 even though it's crooked/boring. #4 is ok, but boring as well.

    White car pic is bad. BLue car is filthy.


    Nice try :big grin:

    How do you have the Cybercyncs connected to your 430ex?

    one light, other than diffusing the sun, isn't going to cut it for a car, especially at night

    true words
    unless you tripod it, and combine exposures in photoshop... which can be tiresome

    or step down, do a 30 second exposure, and walk around strobing

    Impromptu, wasn't looking for clean cars, but lighting experience. with my single setup so far I know now that one part of the car will end up underexposed. Lesson learned.

    Here's what I've got now: http://flashzebra.com/products/0138/index.shtml

    I don't want it to come to that, I'd rather take this learning experience and just mimic a second setup like the one I have now.

    I'm done flash painting, like I said, I'd rather just spend the money and get a legit setup.

    And I know they're "snapshots" any tips on how to get away from that?
