Just me 'n the truckers...


... cruisin' down the Turnpike at dawn.

I'd say it was an animation drawing. What an eye!

What is the best way to take a picture from a moving vehicle without 1) damn near causing a wreck or 2) ending up with the image being spun an unhelpful 33 degrees?

Rick Lee said...

Chris... my advice is to not do it while driving. Don't try this at home. I don't understand question 2.

I'll occasionally rest the camera on my dash and fire off a couple of shots and look later to see if I have anything. It usually requires a lot of rotating/cropping to get much.

Question two was still part of question one. When I take a picture from a moving vehicle, I can never get it level and it always ends up sideways.

Jerry answered it, though, by saying to just do some roating and cropping.

Oh yeah, I always do some rotating and cropping on those. I understand the question now. Some of the shots I do from a moving vehicle (don't try this at home!) I'm not even looking at the camera. I'm always careful to stay safe and keep my eyes on the road, but sometimes I know there's a great sunset or something off to one direction so I just hold the camera up that way and fire off 5 or 10 shots. It's surprising how often I can crop a decent photo out of those.
