BMW E92 335 Rolling Rig Shot: South Miami 335i [Explored]

2008 BMW 335 E92 Rolling Rig Shot Part 2. ( Not a BMW M3 )

 

Collaboration project with Yankis: www.flickr.com/photos/yankis/

 

This was our 2nd attempt at rig shots and I think we really nailed it. Although I'm loving the photo I think version 1's angle/stance was more aggressive. I'd like to try and get more of a front angle on our 3rd attempt.

 

Please see version 1 below:

OK so for all of those who asked here is the scoop.

 

Equipment:

D2X

12-24mm f/4

ND Filter

same rig info listed in shot 1 (see below)

 

Setting up the shot:

We were on location at around 12:00pm. Because it was mid day and the sun was shining down on us, we noticed that there was a wide spectrum in visible light and decided to try and use a blend of exposures. We shot one at f/8, 10 seconds and the other at f/8, 5 seconds.

 

Post Processing:

Both images were tweaked in "Lr" and the 2 images were merged in "Ps" through a layer mask.
