Wow I love these, how long is your rig to get that much at 40mm??

He's not rigging at 40mm, no one can rig at 40mm with a standard rig.

That's what I was thinking since it's hard for me to get a whole car with a 10ft rig at 24mm haha

It's actually at 17mm my focal length metering doesn't work on my lens so it just shows 40 on all my shots and thanku

Nice one.

Thx

Both of those shots are really breaking the rules, and are still really good. It just goes to show that if you know what you're doing, you can break the rules.

Curious on what rules u see these breaking.. more for me to know cause I like to know... hehe ..... and thanku

Well, just generally it's not normal to show the tire face (unless you're shooting a tire ad) because you're missing that motion/subject detail. The first shot is a bit of a centered composition, with the decreasing radius of the car not really going anywhere. In the second shot you basically don't have a car or wheel to support the image, just the front bumper/headlight/radia​tor, even the cabin is lost. This is far from the norm as well.

Please do not take these as disrespects, both shots are very cool, just not the norm :).

I agree. While I said that I liked #2, mostly the colors & the motion, I'd prefer a higher angle. It's a good looking car, but the radiator isn't it's best feature.

Those look a bit soft. What was the aperture?

This is awesome! Way to get creative. I need to do more rig shooting. Just currently thinking about trying to trade my 10-22 for a 24-105L...

Hey man, looks like you're doing pretty well to me. A couple of things.

First, the wider the better, remember that in a rig-shot the MOTION is the subject, not the car. That may seem strange, but it's absolutely true. Having said that, you need to go a bit wider on your lens if you can.

Second, the editing, it's not hard...most of the time, it just takes patience. Have you tried content aware fill? It doesn't like when you touch the edges of stuff, so I always clone out a spot on the top and bottom first, then circle the item you want out, feather it a bit, and content aware fill.

Now, there are times when you just shouldn't bother, and your first shot is one of those times. The gradient on the ceiling is going to make this an impossible edit for the most part, and with the shot being so tight, it's not worth the effort. Try sky next time :).

On your second shot remember to never show a barrier in front or behind, the mind wants to see open road, or open distance, so the wall at the end is hurting this shot. Other than that, and being a bit tight it's awesome!

Are you using PS (Adobe PhotoShop) or something else? If the problem is the line where the light & darker areas meet, select along the seam & clone within it.
Look at the Edit-3 links at the bottom of Post #1 in Selecting areas in PS.
