Rig Versus Photoshop

I’ve been trying to build a rig on a budget for a while now. For anyone who doesn’t know a rig fixes to a car and allows the camera to move in sync with the car, the resulting shot has the car sharp and the background blurred with motion. I set out to try my new setup today. The rig consists of some glass carrying suction cups and a decorators extending rod. Unfortunately it’s still not stable enough and the camera was bobbing up and down as the car moved along. I need to rethink my idea. Anyway I wasn’t going to let the rig spoil my fun so decided to resort to my usual tactic of using Photoshop to create the effect.
