Man I am still not really grasping this technique. Anyone know of a video tutorial or something? My friend has a black Lamborghini I have been trying to shoot properly for some time now and this seems like it would help. Thanks in advance!

im trying to find a long portable flourescent tube to use but the longest i can find is 12"

anyone know of a place to get a longer tube?


the 3ft tube ur using, is it a straight up tube that u wired to a power source, or is it actually come in a safe housing that allows u to handle it easily?

can u take a picture of it?

TimeAtk - it looks like you need to keep the light on the same hight to get a strait line on the side becouse now its like a mess

Think what he means is that you keep the light straight so that it the highlights the contours of the car. Your shot has the light at 2 different heights so doesn't show the contours of the car the way they really look.

I think thats what he means anyway. Nice shot though.

TimeAtk,

some things that bother me about that nissan shot.

1. you have it on all black background... why is it reflecting a building/wall on the door?
2. if you are going to do all black background try to create a better separation of the black car... there are some areas that the car just fades into black and you can't really see the shape of the car. Think rim light.
3. try to visualise where the light is going to reflect so you can have a better understanding of how it is playing with the lines of the car.

Here is my first attempt at it. Used the modeling lamp of a 200watt strobe and a 8" beauty dish.

Is it possible to use this technique on white cars?
Has anyone tried this?

Thank for this info.
I found the thread.
It looks good, but not so good like on black cars.

Not my best work but here it is on white cars. I think the effect looks better in dark colored cars but if done correctly in white can look good too.

I kinda like the pure even lighting you can get from light painting + white/light car. Sure as hell beats hot spots everywhere & blown highlights.

How bright a light source are you guys using? I'm looking at 10m Candle Power torch - enough for black?

Not a white car, actually orange but you get the idea, unless the car is under exposed you lose the highlights.
