Last semester I took a photography class, which totally killed my desire to shoot. I decided to keep it strictly as a hobby so I can go back to enjoying it. I am back, and here is my dilemma... I shoot a lot of pictures of vehicles (mainly mine, but they are all Toyota 4Runners during off-road trips). I have most aspects of night photography down well, but the one area I still can't get is bright lights. Headlights, for example, always come out as big stars which ruin the shot. The only way I have been able to avoid it is by shooting with a smaller aperture or faster shutter speed, but that underexposes everything else. If I meter for something besides the lights, then they become overexposed. Any tips of how to capture bright lights when it's completely dark out without leaving the rest of the image underexposed?
