Planning the Perfect Photo

  1. I’m not sure it’s specifically illegal, but emergency lanes are for just that – emergencies. I think someone would question stopping just to take a picture. There is added concern when it is on an overpass.

    As to news channels, they seem to be granted some leeway that individuals don’t.

  2. I looked at those. Adorama.com also has a camera bracket that mounts on a car window, and is specifically designed for taking shots like this. However, the problem is that anything bracketed INSIDE the car won’t work, because the car itself shakes from passing traffic. I think the best way to go is a traditional tripod on the ground.

    I think I may look for another vantage point that doesn’t require stopping in traffic.

  3. I was going to try a shot like this near my house one night. I got crouched down on the grassy hill next to an over pass – took one shot and got scared someone would find me there.

    Anyway – your shots came out great. Just a bit of shake in the trails, but still looks neat.

  4. Duck Hunter sounds like he was in Dallas. 🙂

    (tasteless on my part, but it did remind me of the grassy knoll and perhaps the person up there.)
