To All


Does anyone know how to keep studio flash from reflecting on the bike. I shot one and some of the light reflected on the paint on the gas tank and fenders like a streak of white light from the the unbrella's. Does anyone know any tricks to avoid this or sugestion, I lit he bike with four umbrella two in front and two from behind and above the bike. The two in front were shoot though so those were lower. The lighting was fine but the refection on tank and fenders killed me. any help

thanks
gary

Go big as possible. Much much bigger than just an umbrella.
Just think how many people do headshots in the studio with a 20"x30" or bigger softbox. Now imagine how much bigger a bike is and make your light source about that size relative to a persons head vs a 20"x30" softbox. You can do this fairly cheap, by purchasing some white sheer sheets and hang it a few feet in the front of your umbrellas. Mine is 10'x20' in the front of 3 softboxes arranged side by side.
This will create a huge softbox kind of effect and the one small reflection from your umbrella will turn into one giant uniform reflection that you can blend in photoshop later.

Here is a picture I shot with 2 30"x42" softboxes and 2 background lights.

Spray on glair killer, most photo shops have it available. and it just washes off. Not alot of color change and want kill the Chrome look.

Works even with sun light.
