Got bored, so I thought I'd do some panning shots. The first one through was a truck, so here are the other ones that came by. The EXIF is in the images.

1. The only one at 1/200 sec.

On something as long as these at the distance that I had available to shoot them, the back would have just been more OOF. And, I've never been a "butt guy", anyway? ;)

Thanks for posting

HOSTED PHOTO
please log in to view hosted photos in full size.


The road was slightly uphill & I was shooting at the top of it. I keep telling you guys to look at the background first, so here's an illustration of what I chose to work with.
From where I stood, I could hear the truck coming, but could only see it for about a second behind a bush before I shot it, & in burst mode, I could rip off two shots before it went behind the tree.
I usually don't use burst mode for panning, but there wasn't much time for AI Servo to lock on, & I hoped that the 2nd shot might be sharper than the first. As you can see, AI Servo did lock on OK, but with the white tanker, I missed the grill & caught the #78 to the left of it.

And before someone asks, yes, I could have shot in a more open area, but what fun would that have been? :D

I have tried panning on birds, usually get blurs in flight

Some help: Lotsa' links!
First shoot with moving cars need advice.

:cool:

smashing pictures Frank

love the colours all over

trucks like it are my favourites, love them.
I especially love #1 and 7 and #8 photographs, but delighted to see them all

thanks for the lay out 'map' at the end

I wonder are those (seemly) yellow and pink flowers growing en masse by the roadside . must be beautiful if so
as the yellow are not actually showing in the layout shots (except last one )they may be closer to the hedge ......
or lower near the edge
?

lol
poetry is rife :rolleyes:

the yellow blur makes a very nice addition in the foreground
adds softness to the heavy metal

:D Wishing a Very Happy 4th July to you and all

Thanks, Marie! I've checked for new threads & you've been missing in action? Where have you been?

I wonder are those (seemly) yellow and pink flowers growing en masse by the roadside .

Sweet Peas & yellow daisy. Mom's garden is overgrown this year.

Thanks, Dan! I like that one, along with the action in #2.

Now it's more like a field overgrown with Sweet Peas.
Thanks, Marie.
