    I use a 24-70mm f2.8 L, 70-200 f2.8 L and a 10-22mm f4.5 EFS. So the glass is generally very good.

    For exterior car shots I edit in Lightroom first, then final adjustment in PS. For detail shots like the interiors and engines and wheels etc I just edit the jpegs in PS. I always shoot cars RAW and jpeg at the same time.

    I carry with me three Canon Speedlite flashes: a 580EXII and two 430EXIIs and use Cactus V4 triggers. With that I also carry white diffusion umbrellas, light stands etc as well as the usual reflectors and stuff.

    In terms of the shots above, all the exterior shots were actually natural available light, except the bike enjoyed some bounced light from a large silver reflector on the rear wheel area. The interior used three flashes through white umbrellas.

    You can see my lighting and EXIF info on all my shots on Flickr, here: HoskingIndustries' photosets on Flickr

    Thanks for the info and the link. I'll definitely be keeping tabs on it, and I'm going to need to look into lightroom and photoshop.
    The 24-70mm f2.8 L and the 10-22 are both lenses that I have on my wish list as well, should be picking one up at some point this summer.

    If the 70-200mm had girl parts, I'd make love to it. It's my favourite.

    I'd love to get into the macro stuff one day, but I shoot so much for work I find I couldn't be bothered after hours! :( Oh well, that's why I have other hobbies, right.

    Macro in the field can be so frustrating at times, but man it is pretty cool to come home and see individual grains of pollen. I wish I had enough paying photo work to keep me busy.

    The start to a small project I'm working on. These were shot with a reversed 50mm f/1.4 and a PK-13 extension tube.
