Hello World,

So for my final project I have to shoot a car commercial on Kodak 5201. Can anyone point me in the right direction. I want to how to light a car. All my shots are exteriors of the car sitting in the driveway. I want to enhance the curvse of the car and have the highlights white.

Are there any online articles or videos?
Should I get a 1k and shine it through a silk?

Thanks
Brian

I think the best way to do this is to just find a very nice overcast day to shoot.

I would not use a 1k and shine it through silk because you will see the reflection of it. I would keep everything as naturally lit by the sky as much as possible, and avoid point sources like the sun, movie lights--- these will be distracting.
