Sometimes you just need to trust your instincts and attach a $3,000 camera to the back of a moving vehicle via suction cup (PRO-TIP: If you're putting your gear in harm's way, MAKE SURE to purchase insurance). One of the easiest camera tricks that car photographers employ is adjusting the f-stop on their camera to create the blurred appearance that vehicles are traveling much faster than they actually are. This Jeep GC SRT is cruising at a blistering 35mph. I set my camera to ISO 100, aperture f22, and with a shutter speed of 1.3 seconds. The reason the Jeep looks like it is flying down the road is because the car I am driving (car the camera is mounted to) and the Jeep are moving at the same speed and the slow shutter speed is allowing for the blur as we drive past the surrounding scenery. I used a Canon fisheye 15mm lens and then corrected the bowed image in Photoshop RAW (one of the greatest 'one-click' solutions in RAW photography).

Nothing beats flying through the Wisconsin countryside at... oh... 35mph. Happy accidents occur (much like the lead image) when the camera tries to compensate for auto exposure due to sudden shadows and dark followed by a sudden burst of light. Warp speed Mr. Sulu. Car photography can be fun if you're interested in breaking out of your comfort zone (and you aren't afraid to attach your camera to a pane of glass).
