I thought I would have another go at shooting this old model car again after watching Don Giannatti on Creative Live.


I only used one light on this shot, A soft box behind the car at the centre above going over the car. I took the Diffusing pannles out of my other softbox and hang them from the side of the softbox being used in the shot to form a sort of white box around the car.

I then took a second shot with some white card placed under the front and the side of the car to give some highlights to the bottom (the card was removed in post).

I personally think the new shot is a big improvement and I can only thank the creative live team and Don Giannatti for the stuff I have learned.
