Basically you leave the shutter open for a prolonged amount of time, and take a flashlight and run around the car, or in this case it looks like they just walked back and forth behind the camera throwing light at the car

Not bad at all :cool:


Is that first picture edited? The contrast and shadows look especially dark.
If your buddy has a light kit, you should totally consider doing a full shoot at night.

I think that first one is right off the camera. Id love to do a full night shoot but I dont think he has a light kit. These were just in my garage and we used the led on our phones for the light
Here are a couple of others he's done. He has the blue 350.

Great pics, really do wish your buddy had a light kit. A friend of mine has done these shots and they come out terrific!
