hi. 

 

i've been searching threads about techniques, setups, external links and advices on shooting cars on studio, but didn't find anything.

 

how to be fast?

 

what's better: move the camera, the car or the lights?

 

what's a basic setup?

 

:)

Shooting cars like commercial or old fashioned camera car faked in studio (i really love)????

i think car commercial....it's all about reflection, not to avoid reflection but create with large sources of light, take a look at

Bag o lites are the best choice, with budget.

You can have power of the hmi with softness of cloth and very large reflections. Great overhead

If you have no budget a lot of kino mega tubes could work
If you move the camera the reflection changes so i think is useless to move the car or the lights
Also ballons like Airstar Gaffair 1.2hmi create a interesting reflection on the car more circular or like fill in for characters
But at the end of this list of very high budget lights, i am sure that if you can manage as well reflection on the car you can also use simply bouncin  boards 6ftX3ft or similar i'm in europe so i use 2mtx1mt or 1mtx1mt with 5k tungsten or 2k tungsten or that is the cheap solution, or using bouncing with hmi's with very strong reflection edges.
I hope i helped you a little
