    Ok...

    This is how my problem looks like...

    I have 3 cars, one girl, full black background, one 250W and one 500W light, both with umbrellas, Nikon D300, 50mm f/1.8D, 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6, and one SB-800...

    p.s. I will do one car at a time...So 1 car, 1 girl setup.

    How can I pull this off, best way possible [​IMG]

    Answers an help please...I will send you a beer, TNT, DHL, FedEx [​IMG]

    What kind of triggers are you using? And when will you be shooting?

    How are you positioning the cars, straight on, side ways, or angled?

    Well have your big strobe on the largest exposed portion of the vehicle. That'll cover you for the majority. Smaller strobe closer but to the frontish of the car to illuminate the hood and windshield as well as giving some contrast light for the model.
    This, kinda crude but should give you an idea.
    Keep the speedlight on camera to give fill on the model.
