{Self-Portrait Project} Just Cruising

exposure: 5sec f/stop: 11 iso: 250

Hi everyone! Today I thought I would try another experiment but this time with my cousin's camera mount suction cup (thanks cuz!). I always wanted to do something like this but I was a bit scared because I was afraid the camera would fall and break and its actually on loan so I was even more afraid. I wanted to capture the light streams of the street lights with me in the car. I couldn't do this properly because I was using a NEX-C3 and I couldn't trigger my flashes but it worked well enough. I'll do this again when I have my own rig that can support my a77.

The shot was achieved with the NEX-C3 on a suction cup with a camera mount on top. The flash was also attached to the camera. I took a number of test shots and ended up using shutter priority. The camera was set on a 10sec timer and I quickly rushed to my car and started driving. 

Gear used:
- Sony NEX-C3 with 18-55mm f3.5-5.6 lens attached
- one flash (HVL-F7S)
- camera car mount
