I think Ste Ho uses the same thing. Personally, I don't use anything, I just run the sections through the trunk pass-through up towards the front of the car, then put a towel on the center console. Of course, I normally use 2 8" sections, so a bag probably wouldn't help :p.

:cool:

I use this..

Alright. Got a couple on the Corvette. Here is one I got edited. My cloning sucks, but I guess with time...

Your cloning is fine, most would not notice if you didn't say anything. The thing I would change is the angle, as it's a bit uninteresting. Corvette's, having a very small cabin, look best from above, and from the rear normally, so a nice, rear 3/4 from above would be slamin'.

I'm new to the automotive rig shot world, but have done a few static shots in the past. By chance, I came across Andrew from Rig-Pro on Facebook and then realized shortly thereafter that he was also a member here on POTN. Small world! Anyhow, this is one of my most recent attempts at a rig shot. As you seasoned professionals in automotive rig photography already know, there are many variables involved when preparing for a rig shot that will be conducive for editing withing Photoshop. The only way to garner this knowledge is to go out and shoot! Ultimately, mistakes will be made, lessons will be learned, your knowledge in rig photography will increase and in your next session you will be all the more wiser. Thank you all for the loads of wisdom that you've collectively shared in this thread. Without your input, I would've been suction-cupping my butt to the trunk of a secondary car driving 60MPH down the highway. ;)

This is a shot of the setup that I took with my phone before properly positioning the camera for the shot that I actually wanted to obtain.

This is the shot that I obtained, prior to removing the rig.

Finally, this is the edited shot with the rig removed. Since I was practicing my Photoshop skills and my kids were involved, well, this was the end result.

Thanks again and enjoy!

Thanks for the critique! I have a surprise for you in a little bit. :)

Lets see your ends then ;-)a

I need to work on my connection between the boom arm and camera and be interested in whats being used by everybody to attatch the camera to poles

I currently use a super clamp and magic arm, i like the magic arm as it allows for significant adjustment in position and I can get the camera the right way up but its week point and reduced weight might be better

Care to share?

I like this one more myself, just because, like Visual Echos said, it's more interesting.

for travel, i picked this up right after i bought the rig. you need to take the adapters off to make them fit, but all 6 poles fit in the bat area and there is enough room in teh front of the bag to fit my 2 light stands, tripod, monopod, suction cups, a 46" umbrella, a 24x24 fold able soft box. and the side pouch carries the adapter pieces for the cups, and there is a separate pocket, for gloves i think that holds the aluminum adapters. it was $60 at dicks sporting good and has wheels on it so no need to kill yourself carrying it around even though it has heavy duty straps.

Matt: Much better angle.

John: I use a 24" aluminum extension. There is no adjustment to it, but I find that with the little ball-head I use, I don't really need any. It's less than half the weight of the Magic-Arm, and longer, so the boom is smaller in the frame. It's nothing magical, you can have one made at any machine shop, and I always suggest people do just that. I don't use it every time, but there are shots I like to use it with, especially if I know it's going to be an editing nightmare.
