Humberto:

Thank you for your comments. I appreciate your insights.

Concerning your perception that the images are "too tight", it was not physically possible to move the camera back any more, without removing the back seat of the vehicle where I was perched. And, moving the camera farther back exposes the head rests on the front seats where the officers were sitting. We tried to remove them, but did not succeed.

Harsh shadows are unavoidable in this setup. The use of soft boxes, even small ones, is impossible given the already cramped working space. I did tilt the SB-R200 speedlights up as much as possible to use the gray ceiling material as a diffuser, which helped a bit.

The other issues you mentioned will be fixed when I get into the detailed post processing. These images are simply a first pass, proof of concept.

I have shot this setup twice now, the last time several years ago, and these images are much better than the previous effort.

Regards,
