from the driver's seat

Newer Older

OK, OK, my apologies to those of you that have been familiar with my photostream for some time. Yet another driving photo....

Hey! Speaking of my driving photos, I've had another one published. This time in JPG Magazine, Issue 10.

Back to this photo... it's different from the others because I mountedthe tripod behind the driver's seat, rather than the passenger side. I'm not sure why, but I've never thought to shoot from this perspective befire!

Also, I had the remote in my right hand, and triggered the shutter about 25 seconds before I went through the toll, and held it as I went through, and a bit beyond it so that I could get the lights in the rearview mirror. My favorite part of the picture.

The aperture was closed down at f/9, so I knew that I wouldn't overexpose the image, even though the lights in the toll-lanes are really bright (I've done this enough now that I'm my own moving lightmeter!).

You can buy a print of this here.

    I just discovered your photos and these driving pics are amazing! I like the fan-effect on your tachometer and speedometer in this photo. This is some inspiring stuff here. And also, thank you for all the details. It helps a total slob amateur like myself as he heads out to practice!

    fantastic...very nicely done.....i have a couple of these kinda shots in my stream as well but yours seem to have a wider spectrum of colors.

    These sorts of shots are normally ordinary, but this works so well, it so crisp and sharp inside the car, very impressive.

    That's an amazing shot. You took the pain of putting up the tripod and now you've earned what you deserved for that perfect shot! I must say that you have an eye for photograpghy, anticipating what would look good, like the toll gate lights. Instant Fav!

    Brings back fond memories of my Outback. Guy ran a red light and slammed into the driver's door just over a month ago. It feels like such a long time since I've driven that car. Not totaled, so it's being repaired and I have no idea when it'll be finished.
