One of my few racing shots, but not slow shutter. This one is at 1/1250 sec.

I give kudos to the photographers in this thread (fantastic photos) that can do the slow shutter pan. I am horrible at it, and would assume it takes "a lot" of practice.

Do most of the motorsports shooters here use burst when shooting, or single shot? That may be a stupid question, but if I don't ask, I don't learn. Thanks.

I know for me, it took a lot of practice, I had to figure out that it was a lot like shooting a gun, I have to control everything, from breathing to how I squeeze off the shutter...it all has to be smooth. I learned to pan on a slow Canon XTi in single shot mode, and still will shoot that way, AI Servo is very important...I often now shoot in burst mode, expecting the second frame to be the best, first I ignore and the second and third are usually my two keepers in a burst of 4 or 5.

For me, it's completely up to the situation and what I'm trying to capture. Typically, for really slow shutter I'll shoot single and for faster shutter I'll shoot burst. The reason is that when I'm shooting slow, there's a specific point where I want the car in my composition so I'll wait for the car to reach that point and press the shutter. If I'm using a faster shutter (maybe for a tighter crop or exhaust flames or brake lockup) I'll use burst because it's almost impossible to anticipate those things and press the shutter in time. I find at 1/30,1/60,1/80 etc. my panning skills are consistent enough that I'll shoot single and save the extra memory card space. Practice makes perfect. You'll get there.

There is no single answer to that question. It depends on who are you shooting for & what are you trying to illustrate.

I've already taken more sharp images for other people than I care to count, to feel the need to take a few thousand more even if I'm being paid.
Shooting for myself, I like "motion shots" that have some blur. Like this GT-40 in images #6 & 7.

Sometimes I'll only take one shot to get it at a specific location with a specific background, but when I'm down to 1/20 sec for moving cars, I'll try to anticipate where the 2nd shot of a burst will be & shoot 3 to try to eliminate the slight up/down motion from tripping the shutter.

There's more on panning & another link in here: https://photography-on-the.net …/showthread.php​?t=1430561
