    A professional photographer came to shoot one of our customers cars for a magazine article and these are the outcome. Would like some feedback on what you all think of them.

    Not a huge fan, the lighting is too harsh and it brings out all the minor flaws in the paint/wheels. And I am not sure on the title...thats a G8, not a GTO, and in my personal opinion the smooth curved lines of the SP500 CCW dont flow very well with the very sharp geometric body of the car.

    Yea, uneven lighting as well. Im betting bare strobes...probably 2 is all there are. Guy needs some umbrellas. He also pushed the fill light too much in PP and didnt check his WB.

    X2! I have a white G8 as well :D

    The flashes are a little hot and uneven. Other than that they are pretty cool.

    As was mentioned many times before, it appears that the lighting is too harsh, and many of the highlights are blown out. Especially in the picture of the wheel.

    However, it sounds like the photographer was working for a magazine; and if the magazine feels they got what they paid for, then all's well.

    Sorry for the typo....all the above was exactly what I was thinking. Curious on these that I took in the same location with different cars. No strobes, just the florescent lights in the building, tripod, and a Canon Digital Rebel EoS and a standard 18-55mm kit lens.

    You did a much better job even without "special lighting" equipment. Well done!
