The issue I have with most light painting shots is that they make no sense. Light always has a source, and the brain knows that, so a glowing car in the middle of a dark background just doesn't work, ever.

Your shot works great because the light *appears* to be coming from a street light. The light on the ground is perfect placement, the reflection in the windows, there is more light on the bottom left of the shot than the top right (dark alley), and that's exactly where the brightest parts of the car are. It's perfect IMO, just needs some more light on that one spot (door/fender) to make it consistent.

The rear wheel being a bit darker doesn't bother me at all, looks like an OEM wheel which probably isn't flush, and the light beside the front wheel is brighter anyway, so that wheel being brighter is perfect. You'd be surprised how many top level guys don't do LP as well as you did here.

Nice shot, probably one of my favorites from you! I really need to knock the dust off my rig setup.

For the most part they don't look natural to me IMO, there's always something with the photo that throws me off unless it's from an absolute professional/legend. There's been some great rig shots on here but usually I prefer a nice roller...

The advantage of a rig is the ability to take a shot like the one I did with the car on a one lane road and being able to compose for the shot you want. Rollers are cool but you are very limited by image sharpness due to inability to slow the shutter as much. Also limited by safety on composition. I won't risk my life to hang out of the car to take a cool shot on the hwy which is what it takes to get cool Rollers.

But I will admit many are not done well imo. Like the shots where the car is soft due to camera shake. Or there is just an insane amount of blur from everything. Which is why I like dropping in different sky's into my shots. I like to select various amounts of blur from a few shots sometimes.

Rolling shots just don't have the impact rig-shots have, and you're going to have to go way up in the food chain (think Dean Smith) to get good ones, and those still don't have the impact. But if impact isn't your thing, I understand. To me, rig-shots are next level stuff, and much more progressive and powerful than rollers.

Some of these Go-Pro cam shots have even more impact, and being able to capture real smoke and sideways action is a major plus as well.

Larry Chen is one of my favorites, his technique in many of those shots is to have a remote setup with his DSLR on the hood or trunk of a chase car and he snaps them from inside as they follow or chase. Incredible to watch happen.

I'm not exactly sure about those 2 shots, but he does/has used one for interesting angles on motion shots.

I just asked him, and you are correct (I was probably confusing him with someone else). He doesn't like the look when using the Go-Pro.

I'm a little late, but I agree with this. I have the /2.8 specifically for night shots where I can't use a tripod nor have a long exposure. It just gives you that extra flexibility.

This one turned out okay. I might take that fence out, but I don't think the shot is that great to be worth it:

erm.... Ultimate Lurker was just responding to the fact that most lenses aren't sharpest at their max aperture, so if you shoot both a ƒ/2.8 lens and a ƒ/4 lens, the ƒ/2.8 lens will be sharper at ƒ/4 than the other.

I seriously doubt there's many situations where you're shooting an ultra wide angle lens at night without a tripod where the extra light from a 2.8 will really matter. (For most cases just bump the ISO and you'd be perfectly fine)

For 95% of people, the ƒ/4 lenses will work JUST perfectly, save the extra cash

I have a Nikkor 16-35 ƒ/4 and it's wonderful! (weddings, rig shots, architecture, landscape, etc...)
