Summary:

Steven van Veen explains in his opening here you needn't search out an exotic location or chase the sun around the planet to find the best lighting situations. The point beings, less is more. 

Generally we let the light direction dictate our compositions. Steven shows us how indirect light is more even and plentiful enough to bring out pleasing flesh tones and softer edges without giving up on contrast. With the model Felicitas, he gives us three settings with all the detail regarding exposure settings and tips for model positioning too. This is one for the case book.. Look and Learn!!

Summary:

Photographing cars can be done on a large scale employing a lot of light and test shots to get the lines right.  Knowing how and where you will need the lights comes with experience. A good way to start though as Eberhard Schuy shows here; is working in scale,  Scale in this case, means a scale model classic car.

With a very unassuming portable LED lamp, we learn where and how to place the lighting to bring out all the important characteristics. Light placement with rapid trial and error.  The results are very admirable, and as we know, good is never good enough for Eberhard Schuy. There's always a little twist. He then plays variations on this theme  by employing the lamp in the photo itself. This is fun and easy to do. So check it out now!!
