    #1 is so fucking clean. i'd burn the little lights out of the image so it's just a dark background that isn't so distracting.

    other than that, awesome pictures dude

    I like them...and not just because it's a WRX.

    I wish a little more light was on the rear but overall, I think you "painted" very well.

    It's pretty simple. Set up several strobes around the vehicle :dunno:

    1. put camera on tripod and compose shot
    2. set camera to desired settings, i went with 30secs @ f/5.6
    3. put camera on 2 sec timer to remove any shake
    4. run around car with the flash in your hand firing test flashes, i had my flash power 3 stops down for this.

    nice, but I think it needs some of the lights. The picture looks incomplete w/ nothing after the ass end of the car. Hell, even if the tree was brought into focus all the way to the ground it would help. Right now the car almost looks photoshopped into the picture.


    imo, ymmv
