    Thanks! Rig shots in the automotive industry are shots done with a car rig. The rig usually involves suction cups, swivels, super clamps, boom pole, magic arm and camera mount. Here's an iPhone pic of the rig shot.

    Gotcha...thanks!

    Ah I've done 'rig' shots in the past, but never at a composition where the camera would include the rig itself. Cloning-out the rig with Photoshop... brilliant!! I should've known, duh :)

    Yep! I've done some compositing with a few shots in the past where I've replaced the sky and background. :)

    With the rig shots, cloning becomes very easy as the sharp rig stands out from the blurred back ground and cloning blur is easy peasy. :)
