showroom style lighting

Anyone know of a good tutorial for getting that showroom style lighting most commonly seen in car ads? I'll try to see if I can find an example to show, but its that lighting where there seems to be like panels above the subject?

Yea, often times there is panels above the cars that help with reflecting lights.

A simple way to mimic this is simply to create 4 boxes that have no height



Above the car, and scale up/down accordingly. Crank up the reflectivness and you have the reflective panels that you need.

I agree with using white rectangular polygons to create hilite reflections, but if you crank up the reflectivity on the car too high it will end up looking extremely fake !

I have a found a better option is to increase the luminosity of the white polys, sometimes to over 100%, this makes them much stronger in the reflections without having to increase the reflectivity of the car body.
