Now I know there won't be many people on the board that won't try this type of photography and i'm not saying "rush out and try it now!!". i'm posting for the curious and inquisitive members who just like to know how stuff works. So now I ask you this... Have you ever been browsing through an Automotive publication, Newspaper, webpage or other form of media and seen a picture where the car appears to be moving at a million miles an hour? Examples: That should do it... Now it's rather simple but still complex and time consuming to do, The time consuming part is planning and setting up the shot and the complex part is timing the shot perfectly and positioning the camera in the right position. The 1st shot you saw was done using a tripod and shock-cord... The Camera used was a Canon Powershot S45 and was set for a 5 second Exposure @ F8.0, No filters were used and it would've been taken around 7pm Daylight savings time. Taking the shot is the other thing that would baffle any 'normal' person that just happens to be wandering past. The Proceedure for taking a shot is (assuming you've already set up the rig to hold the camera in place): 1. set the shutter release timer for a 10-second delay 2. Start the car. (leave the drivers door open) 3. Release the shutter (starting 10 second delay till initial shutter release) 4. You now have 10 seconds to run back, jump in the car and drive around in a circle at about the speed of a brisk walk or even jogging pace. 5. Once the camera has taken the shot, brng the car to a steady halt. 6. Turn the car off for safety reasons (engine off, in gear/park, handbrake on) 7. go to 'preview' mode on the camera and examine your handywork! There might be a few little fiddly bits i've left off here and there but with a bit of practice in the field and some common sense; it'll all work out. This photo technique is not only limited to cars: It can also be used on motorcycles and other forms of transport. I hope this thread has de-mistifiyed one of the many grey areas of photography for everyone here that takes their time to read it and if you feel that something has been left out, just post it up. Disclaimer: This post was written purely for reading purposes and if anything in this post is attempted it should be done in a controlled environment and not on public roads. Damage or loss of equipment while attempting this technique is your fault and not mine so don't try and pin it on me when your camera hits the tarmac.
