Shooting analysis


Headlight shooting

In the past few applications, you will easy to find that the effect of sweep light  is the essence of the application!

The technique of smoving the light was used in lots of scenario.


Separate lighting fixture and power box desigh, also with lightweight desigh make it possible to pick up the fixture to sweep the light.

Rear light shooting

Add the light with Fresnel lens and barndoor to gathered the light to form a strip-shaped light, which made it more easily in light shaping.




Car mirror shooting

It usually takes a long time to setup the light for an shooting angle, also need to setup the light for every part of the car in order to reflect the line of the car.



Here we used 4pcs Forza 500 for the lighting setup of this scenario.




Shooting for the  rear sign of the car
