2.77 - "Solid" 

My much older brothers dream car before he had to sell it 3 weeks ago. Mercedes E63 AMG Biturbo. I shot this outside his garage after dark, and turned off every outside lights and also lights from a near window. I lightpainted it with a flashlight which I held inside a sofbox. I find it difficult to apply correct and even amount of light to get it as smooth as possible. As this is my third attempt to lightpaint I am ok with the result. All shots put together in Ps.

Great contrast between the metallic Mercedes and the darkness. Almost looks like a shark! I appreciate the tip of using a flashlight inside a soft box. What were your camera settings..?

Hi Castillo thanks for a nice feedback! I used 8 second exposures with f8 and iso50. I shot about 25 exposures and hoping I had enough decent lighted exposures to put together in Photoshop. I think I chose 10 images to blend. But I know it can look better with some more practice :)
