I was at a Subaru car meet the other day at the local Subaru Dealer and right after the prizes for the car show were over, they started handing out free showroom posters from the past few months and i was lucky enough to get this beauty:

PHOTOBUCKET EMBEDDING IS DISABLED BY THIS MEMBER.

Its about 2ft x 3ft and framed , not too shabby for free:cool:

Anywho, i have been examining this picture and am having trouble figuring out how they did this image. Here is a copy of the picture i found online, however, the picture is "flipped" and badges corrected.

I cant really see how they could of used a rig because of the angle but please, correct me if im wrong.
I know the people who did this are masters of the photo shop kung foo, but how much editing do you think this shot took?
Thanks for the help guys, ive been staring at it for 3 days trying to figure it out.

Odds are it was a rig shot, although you never know now a days. When big time car manufacturers shoot their ad campaigns they have access to some of the most unreal rigs I have ever seen. They attach to the bottom of the car, and can extend more meters away than anybody would ever dream of.

Thats what i was thinking it just seemed like an odd angle for a rig. Ive seen some of those rigs that are so big it looks like its gonna tip the car over, pretty incredible. Another question, the picture i received, vs the one i found online, they are inverted, if thats the correct term, but the driver is visible in one but not the other and that really threw me off, any ideas?

Unfortunately I can't see yours too well, but odds are they just cloned the driver out when flipping the photo (if indeed it is the same photo). Can't have a driver on that side of the car for stateside advertising.

And the more I look at the photo you linked the more I realize that it might not necessarily be a rig shot. It wouldn't make sense that the trees so far in the background would have the same amount of motion blur as the trees in the foreground. Even the clouds seem to have a pretty consistent motion blur throughout the frame.

Im starting to agree with you, the picture looks almost too perfect,meaning its probably mostly fake...

This blog post (external link) may provide some insight into how these are typically done commercially.

Also since it is a big company....look a software program called virtual rig.

My guess is that it is a virtual rig shot.
