I had a Light Painting 'how to' on DS about a couple of years ago but the links to that are no longer valid. The new/updated Light Painting guide are below, as well as Automotive Lighting, in general.

Tried something a bit different with how i light the car. Shots are just of my gf's car on the driveway, but they're dark enough that it doesn't matter to much. I'll be shooting a tracked up Evo 9 over the weekend. I'll try to apply the same technique on that and post up.

George, the post on the blog is cool man!
Thanks for shearing!

Can you gus have some indications not about what kind of light but how to use it?
I mean: do you lighpaint from up to down? directly to the car? During lightpaintind are you walking in front of the camera or do you use a pole to move the light?
And so on...can you give me some tips?
Thank you!

Yes. Just like normal shooting, one uses a CP to cut out unwanted reflections, the same applies for lightpainting.

You can work the CP to your advantage if there are background reflections you want to cut out. It can affect the line, but I found it doesn't tend to. Just give it a go smile.gif

If you need to use a CPL when lightpainting, your light source isn't bright enough. The irony then is that the filter eats even more light.

You should be able to lightpaint without fretting over reflections from ambient light, and 9/10 your ambient light will be coming from all angles so the filter will not be performing at its best. Add in the increased chance of flare, and how much of a bitch it can be to set up in the dark and my CPL stays in the bag throughout the nighttime.

Here's my take on mixing cars and LP
