I have no idea how this was done.....
Please tell me how you did this!
Here's what I think he did...
SEE VIDEO BELOW I FOUND AFTER TYPING THIS EXPLANATION.
The ride has 4 arms that spin around the center. At the end of each arm are 3 or 4 more arms that also spin. At the end of these arms are the guest seating, usually three abreast.
As the ride moves, the guests are spinning about their smaller circle. As the guests are circling, they will move towards the center of the ride, then away from the center towards the outer edge of the ride. BUT, this small circle is also moving in a large circle.
If that's understood, then the photographer stands just outside the ride and waits for one of the small circle of guests to circle directly in front of him. When this happens, the guests will be moving toward the outside edge of the ride. Just before moving on, the guests in the outer most seats will pause for the briefest of moments on the outside of the circle before moving on.
I think then, or just before then, the shutter is pressed. The timing has to be just right, and Reiep nailed it.
I hope that was worth the typing. It was a challenge to explain it. Maybe it makes sense to ... someone.
VIDEO OF THE RIDE (or similar)! But the explanation will remain for my efforts. lol.
