There are some colour cars I really suck at photographing. I think in large part, it's because I don't know how to set up my lighting. My goal is:
  • - not have too much contrast, but enough
    - details on car must be visible
    - lines of car, like fender flares, must show
    - surface of car looks like its got depth and not one sheet of black.
Can anyone share a good picture of their black car AND explain how they set up their lighting and camera too?

Thanks in advance!

I will read the response as I am having the same problems with a couple of my black cars(my macs in pole position)

I have had some luck with the Diablo SV though (dont know what was different)

All I know is that I had light from 3 positions, from above, from the right, and from the right-front position.

As you can see, the left part of the car looks like a sheet of black paper.

I used autocontrast to enhance the detail though

I obviously still need alot of training. I think this one didn't come out that bad....
