Sometimes you just have to throw it against the wall and see if it sticks.

recent cover shot...

Who added the rest of the decals? And what was the purpose? Just curious.

Easy cheese for you George. Oh, and on most cars I like the windows up in most situations, but on the Lotus they egg-crate really bad because they're super thing, and on rig-shots I always like to see the interior/driver/hands/​steering-wheel, as I feel they add interest and believability to the shot :).

I haven't had a car to shoot in so long.. Getting that C6 Z06 you saw andrew, was a hassle. I hate not being in my town. Ugh. My car gets back today though!!!!! Rigging the vert should be interesting. First time on my car.

I'd like to see how you do that as I have a vert as well. The side shot and high shots I think I get, but I'd like to do something more head on but higher then mounting on the hood....if at all possible. Any examples out there?

Another dumb question...do you have someone meet you at your shot location with a ladder, the boom, equipment, etc? Just wondering how you get high shots like this by yourself.

Yes, my wife, whom you see driving, follows me to the shoot location with the ladder, tripod, and rig equipment. I used to do it all myself, what a PITA, fun, but still hard. Much easier this way :cool:.

It would be nice if people would actually share how they did these shots, maybe post a before shot with the rig in place, exposure/filter info. It is the DIY thread after all lol
