Ok, I was doing a lunch shoot in Portland with Jay Lake as he had lunch with fellow author and friend Ken Scholes.
As we got to Ken’s office, I said “I need a shot of the GENRE car entering the frame from a distance and ending with a lockout on the license plate.”
Jay and Lisa Costello did not think this was such a good idea, but I know a few Jedi mind tricks.
So, I sat in the street (by the curb, I’m no dummy) and sent Jay around the block. Lisa stood on the curb as my safety.
Well, as you can see, the car comes into frame just fine and “zooms” right in until it punches me in the knees.
All is fine. I sustained no injuries, the equipment is fine, and I kinda got the shot I wanted. Damn, I hope I find a place to use it.
Sound has been edited out, as it was not safe for work.
Don’t be a dummy just trying to get a good shot!
