Shampoo sounds like an unfortunate name for a hair product.
You're a ghost driving a meat-coated skeleton made from stardust, riding a rock, hurtling through space. Fear Nothing!

for transportation I came across this and love it, its a plano double sniper case. air tight, water tight, and the foam holds everything in place. Best is that is has wheels so once out of the car I dont have to carry it to a location. Plano factory is a hour from my house and they have tons of cases half price so I picked this up. I also use PVC caps as of this year now too because the aluminum is starting to get galled up.


What are the case measurements if you don't mind me asking?

Do a search, amazon has them, as Plano Double scoped rifle case w/wheels. Its sold as a 52" case and just fit across the back seat of my grand Prix on a slight angle. Its big but super sturdy and fairly light for its size.

Dom87SS: how thick you use in your boom? It is aluminum?

And staff have been trying to do some photos, but are very blurry. Even putting f / 16 and time between 3 to 6 seconds of exposure. I have a tube of 4.5 meters (14ft) and still has not been with a satisfactory result. Could anyone help me?

I find that attaching one side of a strap to the camera and bracing/dampening the bounces really helps to cut down on the vibration. I do this while the car is creeping at either slower than, or right at walking pace. Ideally there's a hill and the car can just coast down without the engine being on, or get someone else to pull it steadily with a pull cable.

One image for the car, 1.6 second exposure with either an ND4 or ND8 filter and CPL. I layered in an exposure for the lights (this was shot for an LED manufacturer's catalog, and was just a test shoot as we positioned the mustang next to the other car, and I forgot to have him turn on the lights until later!) that was shot back in the studio, and I layered in part of the building behind from a different angle to get rid of the boom.

Wow!!! That looks awesome. What is your setup if you don't mind me asking? I've been into automotive photography for a while, been lurking here too... I've created my own rig a while back but sold all my equipment... Looking to get my equipment setup back. Recently got a 7D, so it's a start.

camera: Canon 5D2, 17-40L, $5 ebay 4 or 8-stop ND filter, Tiffen CPL (the camera, lens, and CPL were a friend's, the main photographer for this set, but I have an identical setup just with a B+W CPL).
rig: 2x Avenger 6" cups, 3x super clamps, lever-lock magic arm, and a homemade 16'x 1 3/4" steel boom with clamping slip-connectors and a steel stabilizer wire. It's surprisingly light for a steel boom.

I wouldn't say this is the best setup by ANY means, but I've had it for over 2 years now and have learned what it likes to do and how to optimize the results.

Here's a picture from the first time I rigged it, just to give you an idea of what it looks like:

Well I decided to do a few upgrades to my rigs... and by upgrades I completely scraped it in favor of a building another one.

Found a 20ft stick of 1.500 x .058 4130 Chromoly laying around the shop that I though would be perfect to make a rig out of, also using 4ft 1.375 X 0.095 DOM as an internal sleeve. Its surprisingly light and rigid. Also picked up a filmtools 6" suction up, 3" and 6" extensions, baby swivel, and another superclamp.
