Well.......... while attending an NNL , I watched the way Gregg shot the Models for the Mag

Simple Curved Poster Board background, however I don't have Big $'s for the Flash /Strobe lights

#1
Many think that they need to get Right Up on the Subject
which 90% is way to close .......... i.e. on a 3/4 Shot the Front of Car is out of focus & the Background is in focus

What I do is set the Tripod approx. 1 > 1.5 ft away
(then crop the image in Photo Shop)

#2
I like using GE Reveal Bulbs, they cast a Clean Blue Light as the
Erg Bulbs cast a Yellowish light

I probably spent $1,000 of dollars on wasted NFG pic's back in the day of SLR ( film ) Cameras

When I got this Dig Camera
What I did was tried various settings & wrote down what settings I used ea. pic on a 3X5 card in the corner of the pic

A lil' Trial & Error ............ until I got the result I wanted

One thing That I know works well , is
I like shooting w/ 2 Desk Lights w/ Reveal Bulbs in them w/ NO OTHER lights on in the room

When all fails ............ read the Camera manual :idea:

Build ON !
