This will be my last try for a while :( Work is going to pick up good. I guess that's good :)

This time, I found a better location with less obstructions, and better diffusion from the sun. I'm finding my problem to be severe vibration from the engine now (with the longer shutter speeds.) So I guess my next try will be with the car off, and pushing it...hopefully I will get a shutter speed of at least 1 sec.

Any advice is always appreciated!

This was more of a "fun" shot.

Get a dark ND filter. That will help you achieve longer shutter speeds. Also pushing the car with the engine off will cut a lot of vibration! Good luck man!!

It seems ND filter coupled with pushing (or pulling) would be ideal. But pushing the car by ones self and getting the pic are extremely difficult! ;) But once I get some help, that's whats going to happen.
Thanks for looking.

If you blur them, who's going to know? ;)

He'll know!

And you can tell those are the stock wheels and the stock ride hieght. I'd change that too. Then again, I'd change out the Honda for an Audi, but that's just me! ;)

Nice attempt. I'd love to see a shot of the rig before the PP.

There is a guy who lives here in Denver that has made his career in setting up car mounts for video shoots. He is THE guy in the US. All the major car manufactures come to him to get the shots they need for their stock footage. He can mount any camera to any car with all his toys. I worked with him once on a Subway commercial and we used a H1 Hummer, painted yellow with the Subway logos all over it. The camera was a Sony F900 HD setup. He mounted that rig in four different locations to get the different shots. These were driving shots of the truck moving through the streets of Denver and on the roads around Red Rocks park. There was no turning off the engine and pushing the truck, so the vibration control was really important. It was a lot of fun doing that shoot and watching him work his magic. All the info he needed was what angle did the director want to see and he made it happen. And we never once saw the rigging.
Cool stuff!

Chas, sounds like you had some experience man!

As for being a civic, it's my travel car since it get great MPG. The family ride is a Murano which is really nice. But soon as I hit midlife crisis mode, I'm going corvette!

K, Nice shot! I was so focused on entire body shots, or partial, I ignored doing just the wheels. :( But I like the one you posted. SHARP!

I was just yanking your chain man! I'd love to have the MPG of a Civic. The 2.7T engine in my A6 is a bit thirsty. :rolleyes:

Now a Vette would be a killer car to shoot like this, but would you mount all that stuff on that car?
