need better lighting for inside my garage- Please advise

I am looking to sort the lighting inside my garage

currently I have 8 led tubes spaced evenly across the ceiling

I need alot better lighting for taking photos of cars inside it etc

my initial thoughts were led floodlights in the 4 corners pointed down slighted

or would I be better with tubes in the middle of the walls

only issue I see with that is I have storage racks and a work bench etc and 2 double doors for access so not really the best option for me

any ideas?

these are old pics of the garage, it has since been painted white inside and has a work bench and storage racks on the right hand side of it near the large window

That is a space to be jealous of!

Could you do the tubes vertically on the wall between racks/shelf units?

The other option might be those portable tripod-based LED task lamps in each corner?

I have lots of portable lighting, I have 3 tripods with twin led lighting, but for finished photos of cars I would prefer not to have constantly move the tripods about etc

the rack runs right under the window so no room for them

other option would be placing floodlights in the center of the walls?
