Some Nasty Car Rigs
A while back we had an amazing post about building a DIY camera car rig to take incredible images of cars. This is a common method for car photographers to get in camera smoothness.
Not a long while ago BMW created a series of promotional short films called “The hire” it’s all about Clive Owen driving some fancy cars in impossible situations with impossible passengers. A real treat if you like this kind of movies.
Now the cool thing is that BMW has a BTS film where you can understand some of the howthehelldidtheyshootthis scenes and sequences. Movie, pointers and some DIY after the jump.
I know you enjoyed the entire film, however, to get some focus on the rig shots go to 0:17, 0:54, 1:28, 3:09 and 4:52.
Now, this is a multi $$$ production what can you do @home? Here are some ideas:
For small compact, P&S and iPhones, try this DIY. It practically allows you to mount your camera to almost anything.
Just make sure you are really (REALLY) anchored well before you hit the road.
