I'm new to this forum. I have started rigging cars last year. Here is some of my recent work.

Nice shots, both of them, but I like the first one the best for sure. You just need a wider lens or a longer boom. Or both.

That's a decent shot, if a bit normal. The front plate, and the curb both hurt it though. Nice wheel detail, and windshield reflections for sure.

I found something better than suction cups to mount a rig: a roll hoop! I still have to edit this one (working on a VH1 show this week and paying gigs come before donated ones), but I thought I'd share anyway. editing out the rig might be a bit of a pain.

Pretty nice man, just throw some curves on that concrete to bring out the lines, it'll really help the motion.

I posted this up on the facebook group a few days ago...but here's a "standard" rear 3/4 from the foggy dam shoot.

IMAGE: http://static1.squarespace.com/static/5201b7b7e4b0f1c31ae2b0c6/53a2d1c4e4b0b7f569f92d46/55508bb4e4b01a0eebd3e3d7/1431342005555/Rig+Shot+1.jpg

Still a few things I want to tweak when I get time, but I loved how the fog was rolling over the top of the dam wall and down into the valley below.

Incidentally the next place I want to do some rig shots is down on the road in the lower left of the image and looking up at the rocky dam wall. Pretty neat little spot!

Thanks, very limited at the moment as my Sigma 15-30mm doesn't take any kind of filter. Really struggling without an ND or CPL.

U can always tape a nd onto the front of the lens....

Hey Guys!

Just got my rig.. so set out to take my first shot. i had a hard time with the boom stability, I think my boom is too thin (20mm gal steel) am i right in saying most people are finding approx 50mm the most stable?

but its a start and its all about practice and improvements right?
