Thanks man!
I'm using:
2 Avenger F1000 Suction Cups
3 Manfrotto Super Clamps
1 Manfrotto Magic Arm
VisualEchoes 14 Feet Boom - 3 Aluminum poles with threaded couplers

I had the driver sit in the car, 2 guys pushing the car, and I stayed by the camera and gently applied upward pressure to the boom so it won't bounce as much. I didn't have a shutter remote, so I used the 5D 10 second timer. VisualEchoes boom is soooooooo good and versatile.

Thanks for the info! I'm sure VE has an awesome boom, but I will stick with my 20ft boom :). Youre photos are coming out great. Keep up the good work.

I'm utterly useless at post processing and get really bored after about 30 seconds so excuse all of the 'wrong-ness' in this picture - especially through the windows :)

C+C most definitely welcome as I'm learning all the time.

Also, wouldn't the flame get some motion blur as well if the car was in motion?
There's also the flame lighting up the ground in the static shot but nothing in the motion shot...makes it look a bit unrealistic.

Novel idea though.

I'm almost 100% positive it's a division on the concrete. But god damn it, it looks like a shadow. I'll fix it before I send it to editors.


EDIT: I'm 100% positive it is not the rig. It would be impossible for the shadow to be there.

Gheybe - If you follow the concrete lines, it's definately a scoreline in the ground. Nice shot. Care to share a pic of your setup?

Nice shot, 2 things I'd possibly change though:

- the direction of travel/shot, the car seems to be speeding towards the grass
- the washed out sky begs for a drop-in

my 2c..
