Was that done by using a 'rig' - you can kinda see it's reflection on the indicator?

Ace pic! Look forward to seeing the rest.....

thought so! The guy we purchased the missus's SEAT from earlier this year used a guy called Ben Dobson

http://www.bendobson.co.uk/

He uses a similar rig - has some great pics on his web site - if you get 5 mins check 'em out - he shows how some of the rig photo's are taken. Not sure who should be the most worried...the car owner having big suckers attached to their car or the photographer having a grands worth of camera attached to a long pole fixed on by big suckers, ha ha!

Close. ^_^

Heres how I had to work. A rig was mounted and then a capture taken when stationary to use the lines for the final picture. Since there is no motion, the learning lines such as joints for body panels are at their sharpest. Not one foot of the rig is removed also.

Setup


The car is then set into motion for the rest of the capture.

Shot


Then I have to go crazy and spend time in PS finalising the shot. Had to use a stupidly small app due to no available ND grad. Was ISO50 @ f/22 and still only managed 1/3 second.

This was 330 and as standard, priority delivery is provided so if it is in stock and you order before 5pm, they will deliver next day.

If not, day after. Box was huge, weighed about 5kg but flawless. Thing is a rock!

I have never had ANY camera prior to picking up my first DSLR about 19/20 months ago.

Give me a car and I can take a photo. Ask me to name parts under the hood, forget it.

Im going to do my best to be around as much as possible at meets and random get togethers/shoots so ill share my knowledge as best I can.
