Interesting Photo of the Day: Taking the Camera for a Night on the Town

Who says you can’t drive and take photos at the same time? These two clever photographers came up with the idea of setting a camera up on a tripod in the back of their Mini Cooper to capture an image of them cruising downtown at night. Of course, you don’t need a Mini to try this yourself, but the convertible does allow for a lot more to be captured:

If you want to re-create a shot like this for yourself, make sure you have a sturdy tripod that’s securely fastened to your car. The last thing you want to do is look back to find your camera lying on the road in pieces. Also, remember to use a slow shutter speed if you’re going for the blurred effect like in this photo. The slower the shutter speed, the more blur you’ll get.
