... so what did I do? Tried out some new photo techniques. It was a lil tricky trying to take pics while driving with one hand and holding the camera in the other.

So after perfecting the technique the other day with the X I tired it out tonight in the charger.... I dont know why I didn't get any reverse angle pics of the charger? Woops.
I kinda liked the darker feel, just wish I would have used a better background than my parents house :big grin:

Lastly I folded down the seats in my ram and put my tripod in the back, then using straps to secure the tripod I drove around using a remote shutter release to snap pics as I drove. Im going to try and do this in the charger one night.

Thanks guys, no mount/rig the nsx and charger were hand helds.... The other day at work i was bored and figured out I could hold the camera in one hand and use one finger to press the shutter button.... holding it vertical was easy, but horizontal was a pain! But I got it figured out now.

In the ram I folded the seats up and pulled out the flat metal floor and put my tripod on it. I used straps to secure the tripod and used a remote shutter release as I drove. Im going to try it in the charger next time.

I agree the slower speed ones are much better since it looks like the car is actually moving. Problem is as I said they are handheld so its I tired finding a balance between motion blur and just plain blurry haha.

Have someone sit bitch and hold the steering wheel. Use whatever shutter speed you want, but just put it so AI servo, while holding down the shutter. You're bound to get a few that aren't tooo blurry!

Ya I tired a few in AI Servo....but they looked a lil softer than if I did it in one shot mode, dont know why. What I did was use one hand to drive and one to snap pics. I would hang the camera out the window and snapping away changing the angle slightly to try and get the composition I want. Its fun trying and learning new techniques :big grin:

Yeah, totally. Have someone hold the wheel, so you can focus on taking the pics.

IN for new pics trying this :x:

Maybe I can have my GF drive and I'll sit in the back seat? I wish I could get more of the car driving... if I took pics of my ram it wuold be easy since I could just sit in the bed :big grin:
