    watch out for unsightly reflections.... if someone or some things need not be there, 'get rid' of them ...and those showroom lights..watch how they fall on your cars

    Sounds like a commissioned shoot.

    What exactly did your client request for, and what is the final output of the photos?

    While I am not a car shooter, I can offer the advise that in any assignment or shoot, paid or not, objectives, requirements and knowing the final output/usage will determine requirements and how to go about forming an operational plan.

    All the best for your endeavor.

    Hi there,

    Doing car photography in a showroom is a major challenge. Aside from reflections, you need to nail the exposure spot on. If in doubt, bracket.

    I've seen pretty successful HDR, but don't overdo it.

    If possible, get a assistant. Do a review on your laptop/PC. Reshoot if necessary. Personally, I would stick the camera onto a tripod and work on the scene.
