i see that most of the photos are taken on the road in the country areas. how do you "block" the road off? or just go to a place with min traffic?

Has anyone tried these "Handle On Demand" double suction cup grips? They hold 200 lbs each and are only $12 so I bought a pair to try once I get a boom to attach them to.

I'm interested in getting into this but I want to start on a budget.

I am using these, actualy 4 of them just to be sure :D I have a very well made part onthe boom for them so they can be turned in many directions so any curved top can be fit with them. They have never ever lost grip! And I am using a prpety big boom!

I'm shooting a dark car with black rims at night this weekend, how do you guys show motion in the black wheels when its dark? Not sure that streetlights will light them enough and surely flash will freeze the wheels?

maybe a constant light or some lightpainting around the wheels for seperate shots?

on dark cars, just remember you are shooting the reflections, not necessarily the car itself. in a pinch, i've turned my truck around and shined the headlights at the car during a rig shot and it worked well.

Gotcha, I was planning on doing a static lightpainted shot for the body and compositing that in, but I was stumped for the wheels. I won't have an assistant and so I won't be able to push the car and lightpaint simultaneously, however using the headlights of my car is a fantastically simple solution! :cool:

Failing that I might set up my LED light banks on stands and point them at the wheels as I push it past. Knew I should have purchased up a spare superclamp :oops:

Thanks guys!
