Thanks Visual I figured that. Its more test trial and practice warming up for me =)
More will come, my subie friends wanted to see how the process is done and are my test dummies.

So far the rig is working great just need to tweak the whole setup

Yet again fail on the iso 800 which added a lot of noise and grain.

Just to let you guys know my 2-3 year old avenger cups all failed this past winter sitting around. My 1 year old wood cups are still strong like new. The avenger cups don't even hold a seal to a window/ car lol i'm going see if some white lithium grease in the plungers to help.

Those aren't the same ones you were selling were they? haha

HI guys :)

Is there any chance to make any damage on roof or bonnet, if you put on 4,5m rig? I want to make a few rig shots with one new car, but...I don't want to damage anything :D

this is the One Lap of America winner this year setup for a couple of rig shots once she got home from the trip. Built by TopSpeed Motorsports.

Yup and it doesnt make any difference what size the pole is, you can still mark the paint

Always go for glass as a first option, near the edges is better

I've done many rig shots over the years and can honestly count on one hand how many times I've actually mounted a cup on paint. It is more work to PS stuff out when its mounted on a window but if you mess up someone's paint, any profit you could potentially make on a shoot can easily be turned into a real loss if they decide you need to pay for damages.

I have rigged 20+ cars on the paint, and my own very fragile Lotus many times, and have never had an issue. You have to be smart about where you put the cups, and make sure to distance them from each other as far as you can. I also never rig on just one panel (hood, trunk, top, etc.), I've seen guys do this, but I don't, and won't. Distribution is the key IMO.

I was gracefully given the cups and magic arm from a local guy, and actually used concrete bull float poles as my poles. Reason because they broke down into 6' sections and clipped together. They really flexed but all together, I think it worked well. I have plenty of stills that I will put up in the Transportation section in a few days/weeks. Hope this qualifies as a good job for my first time!

well done! my favorite is the 2nd to last one (and you can't see the lack of driver from there :p)

i've considered the concrete pole solution as well, but all the ones I looked at local to me were $200+ just for the pole set.
