These ar­eas can be dif­fi­cult to cap­ture. Dark­ness and small de­tails means you want to utilise as much soft light as you can. A dif­fused flash­light pro­duces good re­sults. Light­paint­ing (high-in­ten­sity shots made by mov­ing a hand­held light source (or­di­nar­ily an LED light bar) around the sub­ject while the cam­era cap­tures with a long ex­po­sure) can also work won­ders. Avoid harsh di­rect sun­light – shad­ows can be very strong and might make a bal­anced shot vir­tu­ally im­pos­si­ble to re­alise.

As men­tioned ear­lier, en­sure the cabin is free of junk, but also make sure the steer­ing wheel is straight. It’s an easy mis­take to make, but the steer­ing wheel should be re­turned to its de­fault po­si­tion be­fore you start tak­ing pic­tures in­side the car. A wonky steer­ing wheel is an avoid­able fail.
