Did a first test of a newer rig. Worked out pretty well but needs more adjustment. Had it sent to the fabricator for some teaks, can't wait to rig the next car.

If you're all wondering what car is this, it's actually a Toyota Supra. With the Lexus SC transformation, and Super GT wide body kit made by Monster Garage.

Very fast, Very expensive & Very cool!

This car is spectacular, it's a monster indeed! Not a car you would like to drive everyday, it's probably one of the most difficult cars I had ever driven, took me quite a while to get the clutch work with the gas. And I was pretty freaked out after 2cd gear. The speed just smashes into your face. Oh and the clutch feels like 50kgs of leg press. Brakes doesn't feel normal either. The dashboard is like a jet fighters cock pit and smells like petroleum inside. It really gives a super car feeling, like a Gumpert but a street and much more less comfortable version. It has about 700-800hp under the hood. The owner is probably one of the most responsible drivers I had ever known who drives cars like these.

It was pretty fun doing this shoot. We were accompanied with some pretty bored police officers who were just interested to ask about the car. And it happened twice, they were cool. It's also amazing to watch how people would look at this car when driving through the highway and town areas. One driver on the road was having his eyes glued to this car that he nearly knock into me by the side.

Anyways i'm going to try out some videography on this car during the weekend since my rig isn't with me. Can't wait for it.

They used to use Supra for the Super GT, also formerly known as JGTC, but now its the Lexus SC series which has replaced it. :)

Great job! :clap:

Love the perspective, the motion blur, the tones and even the matte paint job on that SC430... (or am I talking rubbish?)

I know that car because there's a Portuguese driver racing one at the Japanese Super GT. :)

I've got to look deeper into these rigs... I love the effect that you can achieve with them. It's brilliant!

How do you get to be this far from the car and still match exactly it's speed?

couleur Featured By Owner Jan 4, 2009
Its a Supra, not a Lexus SC. He did a front conversion.

Yeah, the Japanese Super GT uses the SC, do you know the bodykit was also copied from Japan Super GT? Look closely.

The car was going like running speed.

Damn, it really fools you! Yeap, I though it was a real SC from the Super GT, not a street car. Or even a Supra. :)

Human running speed or Supra running speed? ;)

Human speed, but there was one point when i removed my camera and speed off with the rig. I was so freaked out it would fly off... lol

LOL... And those things aren't cheap, from what I've seen around google. I can imagine your anxiety! :)

I really love the look these kinds of rigs allow on your photos, but in the ones you have was it attached to the car?

You can't see the where it's anchored. :| Which is good...

Yes it was, but I manage to clone it off and many people cant seem to find where it was placed. :P

Yeah, I spent my website budget on the rig instead.
Reply
:iconnmdelgado:
nmdelgado Featured By Owner Jan 12, 2009  Professional Photographer
Yeap, I can't spot the cloned bits.:D

I've seen a tutorial which is done with two pictures from the same angle, one moving with the rig, the other standing still without it. That's from where you've cloned it, isn't it?

Well, don't let me bother you with more questions. Keep on submitting more of these, please! ;)

couleur Featured By Owner Jan 14, 2009
No, you can't do that. I thought about it, but you will have to get back the angle as the rig which will take a lot of time.

I used a custom build rig. Dont think it is possible to track it from another car unless you buy a special rig vehicle where it was used for movie and film commercials.
