CoolI like it... How did you do it without the interior of the car being motion blurred?

Thanks!

The camera is on a tripod strapped into the front seat.
Just drive around and push the shutter when you're going
past some interesting lights.

That is really cool. Still, I'm wondering how tha car is not blurred. You must have a smoother riding car than I do!

Thank you.

The trick is to have the tripod held in securely so it doesn't move. It won't matter how the car rides as long as the camera remains stationary in relation to the car. Bumps then show up as waves in the light patterns. Having smooth roads also helps.

You can see the waves in this photo.

Any opinions about the composition of the first photo?

yes, i really like the streaks of light and how it's repeated in the sideview mirror. the angle of the windows seperated by the doorframe also works well.

Great idea, nice composition and stunning lights. You must have strapped that camera in damn tight!
