I asked the folks who get my newsletter how they think I shot it. Many folks tried to figure it out, but most had something about a front light… and that was a no go.
I used four lights (2×2) and Photoshop to get the look I wanted. Working it a bit in Photoshop also helped the image look better.
The Truck Shot as we found it:

The shot with the lighting:
How it was done:
Closest was 4×5 Dan. He was so close I am giving him the prize. Way to go, Dan.
If you are not signed up for the weekly (sorta) newsletter (soon to change the name), it is on the right side column. I do not spam folks, and try to send it out at least three weeks a month. Sundays is when it usually comes out, and it is pretty rich with content. Content you will not find on the blog… at least for a few months. I may re-post some of it on the blog, but it will be quite a while before I do that.
Thanks so much for following the site.
