Weekly Photo Challenge: Motion (with Hot Wheels cars)

Motion
I tried to get a Hot Wheels car frozen in motion as it went upside down on the loop of the track. It took several failed attempts to catch the images I wanted. The camera was set up and then I used the ten second timer, trying to release the car at the right moment so it would be doing the loop when the camera was triggered.

Some cars were too heavy and had insufficient momentum to complete the loop, here a Subaru is captured just as it is falling.

Another challenge was to capture the car as it jumped off the end of the track. I tried and failed several times. The best shot I got was of a car where the tip of the bonnet is out of the frame….maybe I need to try again.

The cars in the photos are Scoopa di Fuego, Subaru WRX STi and Phantasm only the Subaru is based on a real car. I find the best cars for the tracks are creations from the Hot Wheels Designers’ imaginations.
