Porsche Cayman GT4

I'd always wanted to strobe a car in the rain, so a few weeks ago I was able to take out a gorgeous Sapphire Blue Cayman GT4 and do a little bit of location scouting. The area I typically shoot around doesn't have too much to work with, so I chose the corner of a warehouse around the corner. Overall i'm pretty satisfied with the result.

What modifires did you use?

Gregory Tillman's picture

No modifiers. Just a regular Flashpoint RL600 and about 8 layers. I've been considering buying a softbox for future use, but haven't decided whether it would be worth it yet or not.

Just out of curiosity what do you mean by layers?

Gregory Tillman's picture

Sorry, layers in photoshop. I initially combined 8 exposures.

Oh thanks for the clarification.

Soft boxes are cheap , so i would say its worth it cause it will give you different type of shots when you need them, good luck bro and thanks for replying.

I'm sure i'll go that route before too long. I always like experimenting with new ideas (to me). And of course; I love hearing feedback and questions about my work. Thank you.

My main focus the last year has been automotive photography, and I noticed below someone suggesting a softbox. I can only speak from personal experience when I say that you don't need it. I have a strip box, and I rarely use it. The problem is that instead of a small bare bulb reflection in the paint to clone out, you have this really large white softbox reflection to clone out. And if that's on a small body panel or hard-to-edit curve in the body line, you're pretty much toast. Great shot though, I saw you post on facebook and IG.
