EDIT: The following images were posted by Kryptix in the General Comments section, but I thought the technique and result was so effective that i'd split them out and create a new thread for them here - thanks!

Oh, so the camera is on the end of a pole which you retouch out later?

Is the pole specially designed for this purpose, or something you've built yourself, and how do you mount it to the car securely?

What sort of shutter speeds do you use?

Cheers!

Shutter speed of about 1.3" -- the car is being pushed at 1-2mph. :lol:

I made the rig myself. It consists of 4 suction cups that were originally designed for carrying panels of glass!

I then attached a Manfrotto Magic Arm onto the end of the pole and walk along holding the camera steady whilst firing it with a remote. :)

It requires a wide lens to fit the whole car in. For daylight shots I also use two ND8 filters on my EF-S 10-22mm. :)

Excellent work - and at 1-2mph! That's great...

I'm sure there'd be many who'd berate you for driving recklessly quickly in public areas having seen the photos and not understood the technique behind them.

In fact I think I'll split this topic and make a new post for it in the action thread if that's ok...

I love these. The first photo really pulls you into the shot and gives you a sensation of motion.

Well done!
