    I saw a thread about pictures of you in your car and I had nothing better to do, So I thought I'd go fart around with some suction cups. Too bad the police came and spoiled my party and I only got one shot, I was chimping this shot when they pulled in like I was robbing the place. Fuckers. :wtc:

    This photo sucks and I know it. But I thought I'd post this shit anyway, since it might give someone some ideas. Maybe I'll try it again tomorrow after work...

    All that is is two 6" woods vaccum cups, a Bogen lateral arm, a 5/8" baby spud, a Matthews lightwight hollywood clamp and a 1/4-20 camera lockoff. Total is about $135ish and it's surprisingly flexible. You can mount a ball head on the lateral arm and get it into some fairly interesting positions through a window or sunroof.

    Honestly, I probably could have just used Gaffer tape to stick the flash to the windshield and it would have been just as effective.

    I need to get a more attractive model too. :ugh:

    I live in a fairly boring town and the township emplys too many cops with too little crime. They really have nothing to do but eat donuts and fuck with people.

    Seriously.

    Cool shot. Were you just sitting in the back seat using the remote or outside the vehicle?

    Nah, I'm no strobist. I suck. I need to buy some Nikon/Vivitar flashes, then maybe my photos will be good.

    I would have been a little more effective if I had a fisheye. That way it would be obvious I was the only person in the car.

    I really should get a fish. :wtc:

    Ahhhh, either way, I like the shot. Looks like it was taken of a person doing a test drive for a magazine :o

    I tried this a while back, inspired by someone elses shot. My rig was a mess of bungie cords & a GPS suction cup as the base. I'm not a model, so I took this shot, and another one where my facial expression looked half way decent and did a face transplant onto this one :o
