Not my favorite panning shot of the weeekend. It was just the third one in on the chip. I had to look at them, I promised a few to the Stadium Truck Series si I had to get some processed. I have yet to look at the pics from my primary camera.

Post some of yours I' like to see them. Should I start a WGI thread?

Edit
***WGI thread started.

I am tremendously impressed by the work on this thread ... the ability to track a moving object and nail the focus at most of the shutter speeds indicated on these photos is beyond my current capability... and might even be beyond my capability period! I'm going to keep practicing every chance I get and try to reach something that even comes close to these fantastic pans.

Practice, practice and more practice. And if that fails and you still end up with a blurry mess, call it Intentional Camera Movement.

Think of panning shots as "infinite amount of chimps typing, infinite amount of time" It is not what you throw away, it is what you keep. Shoot like you have an hour to live. Get one or two good ones. Keep trying it and the keeper rate will improve. Move around the track find your sweet spot.

I couldn't even pretend to understand the meaning of that.

Sorry. I thought it was a universal understanding, I guess not.

So this one came out pretty sharp but didn't have as much motion blur that I wanted so I added a mask. Anyone else touch up their pans or is everything straight out of the camera? Usually my stuff is straight out of the camera but the extra blur definitely had a cool effect on this one.

I don't add any motion blur to any of my pans. It is usually very obvious when its been added.

For that spot, the cars are not moving as fast, and you are at 200mm...really slow pans need more speed to track, and the cars being a little closer to you helps too.

Its almost time for Petit LeMans again...can't wait...gonna get some practice with new gear next weekend...but for now, one of the GTD Championship Winning Ferrari 488GT3 from last year.

Yeah I figured no one did but I do like how that turned out. I loved Petit last year but I don't think I'll make it this year unless I just go for a practice, Maybe night practice I can make it up there. What new gear ya get!?

1/25? Crazy! I can't do much below 1/80, with the slower stuff. For top fuel I really can't go below 1/200 and have a chance. Maybe next year I'll just try it slow and hope I don't throw away 100% of my shots! 1/40 for slower cars and 1/100 for TF. I'll just plan to have zero keepers! But I might get lucky. It's hard to turn fast enough with something going 300mph+ past you, Much less keep the thing in the frame!
