Thank you very much for the informative tutorial, I might try it sometime.

Keep it up...

With my luck; the tripod would slip and I would run over the camera!!!!

Willem, I'm stunned, you've really blown my socks off. How fantastic, crazy and risky!
Love leaning how you did this. Much admiration!!

I can see the insurance claim now:

"So, I was driving in a circle with my camera strapped to my tripod strapped to my bumber. Imagine my surprise when....." :-D

Thanks willem.

I really like the idea of shooting whilst turning the other way ... sounds scary.

Wow! Risky! But the results were very rewarding! But i still won't try it :D Thanx for the tutorial!

cool..way cool

I used to put a helmet cam under the licens plate bracket of my BMW and had it connected to my cam corder so I record as I was driving, got some great footage in the mountains in west texas. I got the idea from that video called "getaway in stolkhome" that was going around a few years ago.
I wanted to do this during an AutoX event, but never had the time, then I sold the BMW. I still have the helmet cam, but no real use for it now

I want to try this EXTREMELY bad!!! The problem is, I don't trust myself that much. Awesome photo though.

You can use granny's rocking chair if you can find it, but keep your paws off her REBEL!

Fun tutorial! Keep up the good work.

You gotta be insane.

Nicely done!

04/21/2004 09:18:47 PM · #15
Wow -- I'd never attempt that one... I'm plenty nervous with my camera on a tripod in its regular position! Very cool effect -- very impressive!

Just to be sure : My suggestion is to attach the tripod and camera to the rocking chair. DO NOT ATTACH THE ROCKING CHAIR TO THE CAR !!! (LOL).

Particularly like that you've included a shot in the tutorial of the camera attached to the tripod to the car!

Brave/ crazy is RIGHT!

04/28/2004 12:31:03 PM · #18
Cool, cool, cool. My camera would fall off though. It reminds me of the shot I saw one time where the photog duct taped the camera to his head and took a shot of swinging his daughter around in a circle!
04/28/2004 12:36:57 PM · #19
Very nicely done, Willem! It is amazing what a little bravery and duct tape will do! (Oh--and good knowledge of photography).

Some great examples using similar techniques are here :
' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/243/thumb/96505.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/243/thumb/96505.jpg', '/') + 1) . '' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/205/thumb/68603.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/205/thumb/68603.jpg', '/') + 1) . '' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/226/thumb/82512.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/226/thumb/82512.jpg', '/') + 1) . '' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/244/thumb/96846.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/244/thumb/96846.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

and it this thread.

I hope it is o.k. to link these images here, for further inspiration. I am not claiming that they were based on this tutorial or copies of my idea, I just think they are very good examples and hope it inspires others to invent variations. I personally especially like the skateboard one. And as stated in the tutorial, this technique was not my idea anyway, I saw similar pictures at photosig and in the Practical Photography magazine, tried it myself and then wrote the "how'd they do that" on it.

Have fun.

edit : spelling

Hmm tempting but I don't think I'll try it with my D70. Great idea though.
06/14/2005 03:23:44 PM · #22
Just try without the tripod/ducktape and hold it in your hand. Below is a shot wich i made last weekend. Shot with my EOS-300D with standard kit lens (55mm) whilst still holding it in my hand. Also at 1/10sec

' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/17134/thumb/190103.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/17134/thumb/190103.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

First few shots were terrible but it is amazing how fast you learn to pan at exactly the same speed as your subject. I found this to be even because you'll only know the results when you load it onto your computer!

Edit: forget to say it is not cropped for 'educational purposes', just to see how it will come out of the camera..

I am impressed. This is a really cool idea. I wonder what it would look like if it was applied to something like a dirt bike or maybe a four wheeler.

I'm new here but it might look like this. I hope that I post this right.' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images_profile/50418.jpg?8876539', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images_profile/50418.jpg?8876539', '/') + 1) . '

You could also get some interesting forward facing shots using a window mount with a ball head on it to get the angle. I was trying this out the other night but obviously the time of night was not nice for taking the same style. Got some fun videos though.
