This is the most fun shot and on top the funny part was that I took this shot on 21st of April, I created this video on how did I do that on 21st it-self, I shared that video to a few friends and on 24th on PetaPixel someone re-created and displayed over there, exactly the way I did - LOL

Submisson: ' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/3000-3999/3022/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1248254.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/3000-3999/3022/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1248254.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

so how was the setup? it was simple

1. Treadmill
2. Small toy car that has wheel rotates so that when I place that on treadmill and run the treadmill, car feel like rolling on the road
3. the texture of the treadmill was giving a feeling of road that car is going on road
4. Water spray bottle
5. have a torch (Flashlight) to point to the car when car is in motion
6. Red led light placed in front of the car but opposite to the camera angle
7. Remote trigger to fire the camera when spray water around
8. Turn on the treadmill for 1 mile per hour
9. click the shots
10 and yes car was tie to the metal saw blade to make sure it remains straight

Here is a short video of the setup :)

I should use our treadmill for photography.

At least it would get SOME use. Ha!

It'll be a challenge to avoid camera shake. ;-)

Might be interesting ...
Moving Picture: Submit a picture taken while the photographer was in motion (walking, riding, etc.)

(Obviously this would be on the honor system, and might have to wait for the end of shelter-in-place.)

That would be a fun photography when camera is in motion and taking shot. in this case the subject doesn't have to move, subject can remain study or motion it would be photographers choice. :D
