Re: off-road pic\'s

yeah, I know what you mean - video too, never really gives the feeling of what it was really like. I think there are some techniques I'm missing or something - I've seen video and pictures (obviously taken by more profressional photographers/videographers) which does give a better sense of being there, so obviously there is a technique to getting it on film, I just don't know what it is.....

Re: off-road pic\'s

The trick is to go steeper, since the upside down pics always seem to capture the moment, hahahaha.
I know what you mean though, I cant quite figure out the technique, Ive tried using other vehicles at the bottom, of the hill, etc., nothing seems to capture the incline, or elevation. Those are some nice photos however HIGH5, you usually seem to get some good shots, its just that we all know the photos dont justify the experience.

Re: off-road pic\'s

oh it wasn't that bad. the place we went kinda sucked. i just posted some pic's because you guys have been saying that people should do it more. i dafinatly agree about not being able to tell the difficuly in pic's. i hate it when you are showing someone pic's and trying to get them to understand just how steep something was when it doesn't look that bad in the photo. i wouldn't even of had these photos but a guy i went with took them and gave them to me.

Re: off-road pic\'s

Brian,
A little off topic but, what type of designs, and modifications did you use to stretch your 5 to 100".
I am looking to go to about the same length, but with my YJ its probably a bit easier. I am at about 97" now from the stock 92", just from relocating the front and rear axles with suspension mods. I plan to hit the 100" to 102" mark using a quarter eliptical rear suspensin in the fairly near future.
I was just curriouse how much you had to do, take the CJ5 stock 82" up to a 100". I can see in your pics that the body and frame behind the seat appear to have been sssssttttretcheeedddd somewhat.
Just curriouse, nice rig by the way.

Re: off-road pic\'s

one trick is to take those pics and videos from as close to the ground as possible and as close to the apex or start of hill as possible. this produces an illusion of a larger hill and steeper incline. no safe substitute for good zoom though

Re: off-road pic\'s

high5,
You have got to cough up the info on the stretching of your 5. I have an 83 CJ5 and would love to turn it into a CJ6. What was involved, how much did it cost, and was it worth it?
