Another shot from last week Nurburging 24 Hrs. A Lexus LFA speeding down the straight between Tribunes 6 and 7. Shot from top of Tribunes. You can probably guess that this is one my favorite race cars. This car has great lines.

Canon 300mm, f/7.1, 1/100, ISO 100

Thanks for the input guys, I seem to be struggling and a lot of shots are blurred. I usually shoot from 1/80th to 1/160th depending how fast the car is going. any suggestions as to holding the camera, or stance?

I am new at this but I find that the swivel (at the hips) is key. I was trying to use 1/40 sec because it gave more of a blur on the background. I cranked up the speed to 1/60 or 1/80 and got better focus on the cars but I didn't like the backgrounds as much. I also used burst mode - about 3 shots per pass.

I would be interested to know what kind of keep ratio I should be shooting for (pun intended). The first day I worked on panning I had 2 or 3 keepers out of about 200 shots. Day two it went up to almost 10%. Day three I was about 15%. Is that a reasonable rate?

I couldn't imagine trying to learn this with film!

Two from my first attempt at panning. Usually I'm on the other side of the camera.

my quick tips

- dominant foot forward, other leg backwards (ie take a step, but dont actually walk)
- hold camera with your elbows tucked into your body
- face the direction of where you want to take the photo
- move your hips

follow these basics and you should get better results.

one from me, old-ish but i like it.
