I've been thinking about rig photography for some time, contemplating making one, then decided to buy a full carbon fiber kit.

Great fun doing these and gives time to interact with the car owners and passers by.

I'm still learning, but enjoying the ride:

There are many flaws in these, but my PP is improving and the owners love 'em.

Good stuff, but remember the light. Like anything else, that's what takes your image out of the "Same as everybody else." category.
IMO, the first one is the best in that regard, except for the trees reflecting in the hood & windshield.

Pictures are dynamite......but I think your watermark needs to be bigger and more distracting. :rolleyes:


Remember what the DorMouse said.....feed your head.

Cheers guys... the watermark: been having issues with someone on FB nicking and rehosting a few images of mine - that has now stopped with this watermark ;-)a

Did another one tonight, although my PP needs a lot more work for the composite. Great fun though.:

This was a fun shoot...

Saw this car on the way to work one morning (no chance to stop as it was going in the opposite direction). A few days later I spotted it on Facebook, the owner arranging to go to a breakfast car meet - we made contact.

I was also lucky enough to get permission from my employer to use the yard this past Saturday morning for a suitably appocolyptic environment.

I think I am upping my game:
