A good flash. Google search fill flash, and strobist setups.

Also take a look at this thread: http://photography-on-the.net/forum/...d.php?t=774069

A polarizing filter should help some during daytime photo shoots as well!

EX: Midday lighting sucks, but the filter helped to dim the harsh light some and kept the clouds from getting washed out.

Thought I'd share some of my automotive photo shoots I have taken this past year.

Gear:
Nikon D300S, 2.8F 17-55mm AF-S Nikkor, 18-105mm 3.5F AF-S Nikkor, SB-600, Small Light Dome.








Shot with my old D60:

sweet thanks for the tips! That thread is great thanks.

I have 2 light stands for my flashes w umbrellas and all that junk. The problem is I dont have transmitter/receivers yet. Im using command mode on my D700 which isnt really helpful on a sunny day bc the sensors on the external flashes need to pick up the built in flash. I can do it at night like this but def something Im gonna invest in after xmas
