    Default How to get a shot like this...?


    I was wondering how these two shots were taken...generally what settings would be used...

    Images removed because they belong to someone else. Please only post links to other peoples images.

    As for how to do it, the first image, you would use a longer shutter speed and zoom while taking the picture.

    The second picture is called panning. Using a shutter speed around 1/200-1/250 you would follow or track the moving vehicle and as you follow the vehicle (left to right or right to left) you take the shot continuing to follow the vehicle for a moment after you take the photograph.

    The second on seems to be a panning shot but the first one seems, to me, to be a composite shot with a zoom exposure overlaid on a sharper exposed auto. (At least that is how I would do it.)

    they actually look like rig shots.... the first is most likely an overlay but heres a link that shows how you would do the second shot..

    I don't really understand this process...
    The sample shots are what I'm looking for but after reading it, it says you put the "magic arm" on the car you're taking the shot of and roll it and then take the picture...in the sample shots, there is no way that those cars had the "magic arm" attached or you would definitely see it in the picture!

    Or am I totally missing something?!

    Please help!

    And thank you for the link!

    The first one is really cool, not sure how they did it.. I would guess the second one was taken from a second car driving down the road along with the first one. If you are going fast enough you could have a pretty fast shutter speed and you would still get all that motion in the background. I think the key is you need to be going the same speed as the car you are taking a picture of.

    ...OR you can cheat, as I did. When I took this photo of my wife driving past in her new* truck, I used a fast shutter speed to be sure to capture her face, the new lettering and the cluster of sculptures in the truck (top).



    (bottom) A bit of Photoshop Motion Blur on the background and Radial Blur on the wheels adds a sense of immediacy to it and takes out the "parked truck" look. Yes, you have to Select the areas you want to have blurred.

    The first one looks like they used an on car rig. They remove the rig in photoshop. Second one is using another vehicle to get that shot.
