New member here that joined today looking for some advice for one learning project that i hope will result in an increased knowledge of photography and also a nice photo.
I am trying to recreate a photo like the below (only not as nice a car!!)
This seems a b ig challenge as the light situation is very complicated!!
Firstly I will need a tripod and a long exposure to get lots of light in (i think). I would then bracket the exposure.. (as this will allow me to see what looks best back at home) but what about appeture settings? I have a entry level flash unit which i intended to hold. A friend suggested a 10 second exposure, with an appeture of F18 or F22 and to flash the camera as many times as i can in the the 10 seconds exposure. Does this sound a good setup? I cannot understand the appeture at the moment and how it effects the photo. I know for portrait it blurs the background and it can control the amount of light let in, but i cant equate that to this photo!
Any tips welcome and please try to explain any tips (as im really just beginging).
