I love the effect, how did you do that and get the motion blur to match up?

do you have a picture of your setup? that would help determine what the problem might be. I would guess that your lens isnt wide enough or the rig isnt long enough for starters.

It snowed for the first time today, but it was quickly getting dark by the time I got home, so I had to rush through my first real rig shot! I'm still really happy with it, considering. the only thing is the noise, I shot at ISO6400.

To make effective rig-shots on crop-sensor you're going to need to be at 10, 11, or 12mm @ at least 15 feet.

Secondly, your aperture should never go wider than f8, with f11 being the better choice. This is because, at this distance, the far end of the subject will be soft at anything under f8 (usually).

Lastly, your goal is 4 seconds.

You have to do the same parts with a different camera angle and then a lot of time in PS finding the right captures! It is good to do but difficult

2nd rig shot ever, input greatly appreciated. I definitely need an ND filter though.

Perfect exposure steelbluesleepr. Longer rig/wider lens and you are on to something great

Agreed.

Thank you both! my rig is about 16 feet long, and is actually galvanized steel (for now). I will be getting a 17-40 f4L as soon as money allows. this was shot with my 28-135, currently my widest lens, and the only one that holds my 72mm CPL. for now, I'm just going to keep playing around with the rig and learn some more tips and tricks.

I love these rig shots... something I've been toying with adding to my repertoire for a couple years now, and I think I'm gonna do it in 2013 ... I've seen the rigs on Filmtools.com as well as Automotiverigs.com ... and they ain't cheap. I've also seen the DIY rig setup as described on http://www.diyphotogra​phy.net …a-diy-specialized-car-rig (external link) .. this looks like an older article, and I'm curious if any new techniques for building a boom/rig have developed since then, and if there's a definitive "recipe" for building one that is current?

Thanks!

There are some tried an true recipes out there, but there are also some people on board that have gotten very creative using out of the ordinary pieceslike windsail booms and whatnot.

Most of us use aluminum for booms. Some of it is prefabricated with threaded joints and others, like mine, have been machined to fit into each other with great accuracy and strength.

Avenger and woods cups are widely used as are the super clamps.

Carbon fiber is super fancy and lightweight for a boom and looks great, but for the price is hard to justify for some for the added benefits.
