I shot this pic for a Pentax advertorial called 'The Pentax Challenge' in DSLR User magazine. Shot on the K10D by securing a small tripod on the bonnet of the car whilst Robyn tried to sit still for the 1/2 second exposure.

Motion was achieved by pushing the car by hand so there'd be no camera shake caused by engine vibration.

There's a video of me taking this shot on ephotozine.tv - http://www.ephotozine.tv/video/How-to-Photograph-a-Fast-car-835

Camera:Pentax K10D Check out PENTAXPORTAL!

Saw the video, the car was just pushed backward, very clever indeed.
