Darrick, you will also have to "soften" the light that is iluminating the model, since you are having flares. If you have flares on the model, you will have a reflex on a reflexive bg.

Darrick, your lighting isn't very uniform. The front of the model is superexposed, and even with flares. You'll have to get the light more diffuse.

That's about it. If you think about my bathroom set up, all the light that hits the model is indirect, reflected from the white tiles on the walls. The model is uniformly lit and I don't get the flares.

With a light tent that is the effect you want, so you will have to move the lights around and dim them down with mylar. A good thing is to use them with a reflector, so that the light that hits the tent comes from the reflector and not the light bulb. If needed, you will have to shroud the reflector to make the light more soft.

Darrick, the front of the car is a bit over-exposed. Are you just throwing a sheet of mylar over the lamp that is pointed directly at the car or is it pointed to a reflector that iluminates the car (with mylar over the lamp and reflector)?
