Hello everyone! I`m new person here, so there would be some kind of introduction post.
As you know, there is a big and hardly understandable country as Russia. And, in that country there is such part known as Syberia. It`s cold, dark and thousands of bears are roaming around smile.gif , BUT even at that conditions there is a place for a piece of art.
Sounds quite defiantly, isn`t it? Well, let me show you what i`ve got.

At first place, and the most proudly, i present my rigshots.







These shots was taken with unique piece of engineering - hand-built rig that`s made using nothing but a hammer and some old russian tank parts. It can take camera seven meters away from the car and lift it up to four meters from ground level. Weight - about 100 kilos, powered by hydraulic and completely uncontrollable if you are left alone with it.
Here`s a couple of shots made using the FULL POWER firedevil.gif :




Also, there`s some lighting technology, I use both flashes and continiously lights:











And there`s some natural shots as well:









This moment i suppose introduction is over smile.gif It would be great to have some conversation, hear some advices and answer questions, if there are some.
Good luck and nice shots to everyone! Hope you enjoyed viewing my images, thank you!

PS if you are intrested, you can also follow my work progress here or here (in Russian).

I was thinking to myself, that's a bloody long rig for some of those shots. Then I read your bit on it. Sounds like a funky setup and who can argue when using tank parts lol.

Gotta say fella, I'm loving all those shots so much. I do like the russian take on photography biggrin.gif

Wow! That might just be the single most impressive post I've opened. I was not expecting to find this kind of work. Holy shit, I'm impressed.
Some of your work looks like it came straight out of and advert. I am blown away.
As ralfus90 asked, is it at all possible to show us a pic or two of that rig? I don't know if I've ever seen that kind of length on any rig, ever.
Again, well done on your work, and welcome to DS!!!

I'm not fussed about the length of it, I just want to see a rig made out of tank parts smile.gif

In Soviet Russia we use tank barrel instead of rig-pipe...
