Finding the right picture of a car you like can be pretty difficult, but with just a few skills, a car, the right lighting, and some retouching skills, you can easily get the pictures you dream about.

This video was shot by the team, with Blair Bunting as the leader of the pack. He says he took the idea of how to perfectly light the Aventador while playing Forza Motorsport 4, days before the car actually arrived to the studio.

He used $60,000 worth of lighting equipment and a very cool Nikon D3x DSLR camera for the shots in this video, but he says the same effect can be obtained with a single hot light on a stick. Until we check out his theory for ourselves, we’ll have to take his word on it.

Watch the video to find out some secrets about how to create perfect lighting for a car!

I can’t follow this tip; it’s too expensive for me.

LOL yeah he definitely did a good job without minding the cost.

Will it cost the same if other cars photograph? The numerous lamps that used might be the reason in having a total cost like that.

This got truly effective for him, huh? Professional photographers should try this.

That’s ridiculous $60,000 for just a single photo shoot? Well, from this video, the Lamborghini is exactly the men’s prize possession. I can’t even skip any part of it to check out the full details of the Aventador.

Maybe I’ll try this in the future and credit him.

I guess this is effective since the photos truly showed some professional angles of the car!

This should be an advice to enthusiasts, of course. Wealthy, abundant enthusiasts who are willing to spend money on this kind of interest.

The use of proper lighting supports the manifestation of the natural color and beauty. This video really is helpful.

This really helped me to understand lighting and angles better. I’m a photographer, and thanks to this, I got a tip.

This video helps me a lot since I’m an amateur photographer.

Good tip! Now that I know the process, my next plan would be finding the money for that. LOL. smiley Seriously, with that amount you can already buy another car.

That’s too pricey for me. Nevertheless, I’m glad he achieved the lighting he wanted.

For enthusiasts with big budgets like him, this would be ideal and creative. However, for a simple fanatic like us who are contented with any view of the Aventador, this isn’t really economical. The Aventador is perfect the way it is, even without professional lighting.
