Big Shiny (Tiny) Cars

Had a friend ask me to try out “fancy car” lighting on some toy cars.  Went with a two light setup on a small black IKEA side table. The first light was camera right and above the subject with a square softbox. This enabled me to catch those highlights and create the under subject shadow.  The second light was placed behind subject with a 7″ reflector to create the dramatic horizon line, edge light and undercarriage highlights.
