Anyone who has tried can tell you that lighting cars well is a difficult thing to do. The size of them, the lack of flat surfaces, how reflective they are, and the variety of different materials all make for one of the most trying photographic challenges out there. In this video, renowned automotive photographer Tim Wallace talks with us about the methods that have helped him to become so successful. Most people are under the mistaken impression that you need a huge studio bay and massive light modifiers to be able to light a car properly. The thing that makes me the happiest about sharing this video with you is how simple the lighting can be.
