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

I have little doubt and that's why I have question..
How do you handle different intensity of light? Sometimes I have problem with good exposure. I use CPL and ND8 ( ND32 is on the way ). Maybe what mode to use in the camera? Full M ? or maybe Av, Tv ?
Do You use light meter?
Thanks in advance for Your reply ;)

One cup on the front windscreen, all the way down near the wiper, the other on the top of the car, beside the spine.

DIY isn't about telling people how you did your shot, DIY is about doing it yourself. If you want before/afters there is a thread for that :). Also, most questions about how rig-shots are done can be answered in the first 5 minutes of doing a rig-shot, so there is no real need to get so involved with this or that shutter speed or aperture, etc., you'll figure it out easily, and should have fun doing it.
