We have been fortunate to meet up with some real photo and video professionals.
Here we are (Jack, Woody, Don & Larry) w/ cars and spouses and friends on Lake Stevens a week ago. This is a very well done 7.6MB download with video and music. The photographer is reading (and on) the book, the producer holds the sign in Jack's car.
Larry - Very nicely done! I love these snippets that I've seen from time to time.
My only complaint is one I have from many videographers. They mirror images thinking nobody notices. There was one pic when they mirrored the image. You can see your front plate is backwards. I would have at leat used Corel or P-shop to fix that.
I see this in videos all the time. Smoke going into flames and water falling upwards, flags flying backwards. All these scenes I have seen in high end productions. Just a pet peeve from movies, like skid marks where they practiced the stunt before the take, all cars seem to have Chrysler starters in them (Foley artist mistake), streets are always wet even if it didn't rain!
Looks like fun! I have only had my car out twice this year so I will live vicariously through you!
I thought I was the only one that noticed, and was bothered by, those things in videos.
It certainly is common to see those cheap tricks in television shows and videos. I've even noticed the backward fire in a movie. It always bugs me too.
