SO EFFING GOOD!

Rig shot motivation 10 minutes ago = low.
Rig shot motivation NOW = HIGH.

Expect to see something from me soon ;)

Thanks homie! Hammer it out, you can do it, and have fun doing it as well!

Agreed, that is still one of the best rig shots I've ever seen!

What could have been some ok shots here are let down down by the terrible processing, just looks like a butt load of the clarity slider.

How did you know it was Allan McNish? Did his helmet give it away?
Yes it's an Audi R8 ... the GT model

I was commissioned to photograph the new Spyder for PistonHeads and Allan was there to show everyone hoe to drive it.

Hi Everyone,
I recently bought all the bogen suction cups, magic arm and the super clamps, ready to set up my own car rig but now i'm stuck on finding the perfect pole to complete my rig. I see there are a few different variations that ppl are using throughout this thread. I just want to know which one works out the best and i want to get it right on the first shot.
I'm looking to build one that's at least 10-12 ft long, and won't flex so much. Should i be using aluminum poles? what thickness should I get? what about this who guide wire deal? how should i build that into the pole? is it needed or is good pole material enough to overcome flex and vibration.

I live in toronto. if anyone around the GTA and provide info on where i can find a good place that carries all this, it would be great.

Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

Thanks!
