Lee Howell of Kaptured Photography undertook an ambitious photo shoot in Auckland’s Victoria Park tunnel, armed with a limited edition Audi R8GT and a state-of-the-art move ‘n shoot MOTORIG car photography rig. This behind the scenes video shows in details what it takes to capture the images for high end car photography.
MOTORIG is a motion-controlled camera rig that is mounted to the undercarriage of the picture car.
MOTORIG is compatible with the Service Vision Mini Scorpio 2-axis head and the Doggicam Sparrowhead (both are recordable and repeatable).
Max. Rig length 5 m
Max. speed 80 km/h
Pan: left and right 220° in 5 sec.
Tilt: up and down 0 – 90° in 4 sec.
The above specifications are dependent on driving conditions and equipment.
Set up time after 1 prep day: 1.5 – 2.5 h
Allow 15 – 45 minutes of program time per shot, depending on the complexity of the move and familiarity with MOTORIG.
We are not “frame accurate” per se, however, frame positions and vector data are memorized for each repetition and are usable for editing.
See move ‘n shoot for information on the MOTORIG and Lee Howell for more on automobile photography.
