I know there is a lot of room for improvement, but figured I would share my first examples.

I know I need a better wash, and nicer car ;) But I want to have the skill before doing either of those haha!

they are not bad, but try to get shutter speeds to 1/60 for better motion blur. 1/8 of a sec is way too long for rolling shots.
Also try to do it in not such bright light, either early or later in the day but try to avoid middle day harsh lighting.


its a good start keep working on it.

For being your first rolling shots, these are nice. I would agree with what Em2 said and add that you should find some locations without so much background objects such as trees and buildings. Hopefully we'll see more from you.

1/60th? That means I would have to be doing at least 30mph! But I do agree about lighting. I thought it was going to be good (the sun was setting, but it was HARSH to say the least.)

Better location is also on the check book.

I shot these at F22 just trying to get some drag in the shutter. I may need to get an ND or polarizer to cut some light... Never thought I would need to cut light ;)

yup because the wheels look much better when its 1/60 compared to choppy at 1/8 or so. Get a ND filter it will make so much difference.

Well once I get better lighting (period). I will experiment more with DOF, and various shutter speeds. I will document what does what and go from there. Thanks for looking. :)

I think I figured out what you were talking about. These shots I was moving less 3mph. I had the camera attached to a rig. So couldn't move fast. So in order to get any blur what so ever, I needed to extend the shutter as much as possible.

well, you could have gone the other way... and you wouldn't have had a lighting/shadow problem... at least in #2 and #3.

I was more interested in utilizing the rig for the rolling shots, had I cranked up the shutter speed, Then the rig would have been useless, might as well let the car just sit there as I take pictures....:/

You've made a good start with these, but first you should look at the background that you're going to get. In #1, you might have eliminated the tree & building by shooting a 1/2 second later? ;)

Frank, I learned A LOT from this little shoot. I also learned doing this single handed (just self timer and hopping in the car) is much moredifficult than anticipated. Going to look around for better locations, and will have a bud of mine there. We are both photographers, so we should be able to bounce ideas off one another, and assist when needed.
I think he has a remote timer which would be a necessity too!

Just another of those "It seemed like a good idea at the time" things?

"remote timer", or remote release? Considering that most rig shots are at about 2-3mph as you said, you can probably use a cable release if you have someone else to be in the car.

Well it DID seem like a good idea. I was all pumped! haha!!!

Well my buddy has the remote "release" It would have been much more convenient Especially since my car is a standard.

I'm going to try again tonight, but hopefully the sun won't be so strong as it's setting.
