Trying a slightly different approach today attempting to actually take this shot during the day. I figure I need about 1″ shutter speed to capture enough sense of motion, OR I’ll have to travel so damn fast that I might get myself killed. FYI I ended up going for the former route.

Last night I tried using my birthday gift (thanks guys!) Gorilla SLR Pod to mount the camera onto the passenger seat head rest. It worked pretty well, but there’s still a significant camera shake thanks to my stupid racing suspension and horrible LA roads.

Settings: F/22, 1″ shutter speed in the afternoon is still way way way over exposed to about 5 to 6 stops. I’ll leave that to you to figure out how to get this done so that I don’t ruin the fun part for you. This time I actually mounted my entire ebay Amvona tripod in my car with 2 legs extending all the way to the back of the front seats, and the rear leg opening at a wider angle pushing against the rear seats to lock the tripod into place. All the shots were taken with a tiny infrared remote in my hand so that I can concentrate on driving instead of taking pictures.
