I don't know if it's my best panning shot of all time but one of my favourites from last weekend

It was the first frame of the burst. Going around a circle. So it was perpendicular at one point

Personally I wouldn't shoot in burst mode, the timing of the shot is much more important.
At 100mph a car will travel 21 feet in one seventh of a second.

I'm not nearly confident enough in my panning to try a single shot with it. As is I'm lucky to get one good shot out of a burst. And even less likely is it perfect.

Trying to shoot this type of image at anything slower than about 1/125s is an exercise in creating nothing but throw aways if you want anything more than just a headlight or wing mirror in focus. 1/25s is just sheer folly on vehicles coming at you like this.

When the car is travelling closer to perpendicular to you, then you can slow down to 1/60 or 1/25.

I disagree with this...the fun and look of a really slow pan is worth the throw aways...1/125 is just too static and quite frankly too easy...for my tastes.

I agree with this. If I'm shooting for myself, how many more sharp shots do I need? It's a lot more fun shooting these.

Taken at Donington Park at the Historic Weekend.

Not particularly slow pans - but I liked them. Second one was slowing down so could have dropped the shutter speed - if I'd had time as I only saw it out of the corner of my eye as he was coming off the track.

Nice to see the Breadvan been driven hard - until it broke a few laps later.

Not 100% sure what happened to the Mini as it had been going well (Apart from the wheel fell off, obviously!)

the 3/4 coming at you pan is one of my favorites...one of the hardest to nail, right next to the 3/4 leaving...that one I find to be much harder. I mostly shoot for me...and I want to see that motion, I want that artistic side of it, I don't want to see a totally sharp car...I love slow pans almost as much as shooting long exposures...both for the exact same reasons. More dynamic.

Nice work on these, Rick! (Hope you didn't have to delete too many to get them!) ; D

I think what you are shooting is a huge factor when it comes to shutter speed: 1/125 would be quite dull for saloon car racing, but getting consistent results at 1/125 when shooting Superbikes is a completely different kettle of fish!

I'm personally not a fan of the "arty" style: I like to see a sensation of speed in a photo, but I also like to see as much detail on the vehicle as possible. Most of my favourite panning shots have been taken between 1/60 - 1/100 as I find that's the best range for balancing speed with detail: sure there are many differing opinions and preferences on the subject though!
