Are you making HDR’s of the images? I just noticed you mention machinery.

Remember this: 1st you shoot to determine ambient light exposure. 2. You set up and adj any aux lighting i.e rim, fill etc. 3. THEN you set up your main light and reflector(if any) Do those things in the proper order and you will achieve your best shot faster and have far fewer problems that seem unsolvable.

Not of any that are posted here.. There was one that my light didnt turn out like I wanted and did a little HDR to bring it out. In hind sight I shouldnt have mentioned it.
