I’m no Photographer but try Googling Automotive light tunnel - I’m sure there’ll explain it better than I can 🤣

Always do sober what you said you'd do drunk - that will teach us to keep mouth shut!

I was earning money taking photographs in the 60's and becoming professional was a Plan B if I failed my engineering exams, but I didn't so it's remained a side-line and hobby.

I used one of those silvered windscreen sun shields to bounce a 'blanket of light' from one flash and another from a silvered photographic umbrella so there's no single bright spot or stripes reflecting off the car to detract from the lines, but also using some weak ambient light to fill as well .

I've seen Hethel's light tunnel for paintwork inspection many times on factory visit's & hat's off to those guys who do it, I'd find it brain-numbing.

Think I misinterpreted your comments about photographers to mean it was a photostudio facility, not a coachworks operation / car valeting / detailing.  As photos to show the light tunnel they work, but the light reflected off the windscreen in the first two rather prevents me from seeing past to the true shape of your car so doesn't show your car 'in the best light' ...  🤣

Interesting reflections on the others and just occurred to me that the new Lotus badge is going to look bloody awful as a wheel centre logo.

It's all the rage at the moment! I chap I know does mainly high end detailing and has installed this on his ceiling. I think it makes the cars look awful personally and make you want to, as you say, look at the lights rather than the car.

I went and joined a photo club as I bought myself a decent Nikon camera kit.

still not worked what hell they talk about or do about taking proper photos, think my camera is still in auto mode and I dare not say anything ? 🤫

however I am looking at getting my car detailed and would love to take some decent pictures there after but not got a tunnel thing perhaps get my step ladders out ?

Essential journey?  😂🤣

Great picture though, the green contrasts nicely with the yellow.

Alcohol. Sex. Tobacco. Drugs. Chocolate.  Meh! NOTHING in this world is as addictive as an Evora +0. It's not for babies!

Thanks mate, they’re Koya semi-forged. As far as I can tell, they’re only available in Australia. A few people have asked over the years, but no one has managed to get them shipped internationally as yet. Took me lots of measuring / experimentation to get the offsets / widths I wanted years ago! Haha.
