For the past several years, I've been playing around with taking pictures while driving. I know how that sounds - and I make it as safe as possible. Seriously!
I attempted several setups until finding one that worked best. These days I use a Gitzo 1325 tripod and a Markins M10 ballhead. The combination is rock-steady and keeps my camera practically locked into the frame of my car. The blur comes from motion, while the interior of the car stays in crisp focus.
I almost always use a 100 ISO. I set the camera to manual exposure and generally set the f-stop to somewhere between 7.1 and 11 and the shutter speed to 'bulb.' I set the focus to manual and pre-focus the lens on the dashboard.
I've found the best subject to be the tollbooth. I drive though twice a night, play around with the shutter speeds, and take lots of pictures.
