Here’s a quick rundown of his workflow and best practices:

  • Tall white V-flats and a large white seamless background helped to hide the reflections.
  • Scott and team moved the white seamless paper to the rear of the car and cut a hole in it so that he could shoot through the hole, minimizing most of the possibility of reflection.
  • Get as low as possible to shoot the car in its entirety. Standing in front will give you a good view of its windshield and roof.
