    How can I eliminate some of the flash in chrome parts, e.g. Harley Davidsons on a show room floor. Im using 35mm and digital. Some of the customs e.g. custom choppers, etc, that we advertise on our website require close up shots to make all the little "details" really stand out. I don't have any fancy studio lighting, and the flourescent lights require that I use a flash. Many times I can't get the detail without getting a picture with a lot of flash reflecting off of it.

    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,

    J.:mrgreen:

    Maybe set the white balance to fluorescent (if you can) and not use a flash. I wouldn't suggest anything in processing because that might get a little annoying editing out little flash spots on chrome.

    Look on line at flash difusers. Gary Fong has some good ones that will help keep it from having a large flash on the chrome.

    What are the specks you are shooting on these parts?
