It’s the technique used to capture those fantastic images of cars, vans or motorbikes that give the appearance of speeding down the open road. The type of images  you see in adverts selling premium quality cars.
Only it’s not half as dramatic as it looks. The cars aren’t speeding for starters. They have a long metal boom attached with a camera on the end and they are being pushed to minimise vibration.
