Did you follow the car with the camera? Always was interested in how to get the car sharp in this case... Just hope on your luck?
So I made the most of the light by shooting with the NEX7...
Lights are all around us I wanted to maximize the magic hour since we were shooting out on the country side with no street lamps. I have done a few rig shoots at night. I couldn't get away with using the rig on a busy street but theres a lot to be said and unseen when things get blurry...
Really cool night shots all of them!
... but this one's got me stumped?!?? He's not actually drifting is he?
Is he really or did you superimpose a parked shot and radial blurred the wheels in photoshop??
Either way, that's great work...
Yeah, this shot was done the same way as the others. With the wheel turned, the distance travel from a radial point is greater than that of a straight line. So the lights get exaggerated with streaks to create this effect. The Honda Fit traveled no more than 5 yards to achieve this. I just need to be careful of not making it look like he's running into the way.
Ahh ok I see it now, the car is in fact turning to the right. For some reason I thought it was turning (drifting) to the left, with the front wheels on opposite lock.
