Now shooting cars out of a cannon is not a very precise science however they do the best they can. We spent many hours setting up for this iconic shot and there were many different motion camera teams there to catch as many camera angles as possible. I was the only still camera so I needed to do a lot of research during the 8 hour set up to make sure I had found the best angle. Brave people from the stunt department surrounded each person who was working a camera to pull them out of harm's way should anything unpredictable happen. After all this prep it was "showtime" and exploding cars were flying all around us. Amidst the mayhem, stunt performers, playing innocent frightened bystanders on the bridge; run for their lives literally just outside the predicted landing spots for the cars. I must admit I would have run in the other direction if there wasn't a large stunt guy squeezing the life out of me while he was supposed to be protecting me. I eventually found my cool and stayed in place as the fast moving motor drive of my Nikon caught a variety of frames. I love this particular frame because of the silhouette of the person running in the foreground.
