    Well panned Isac. Love the whirly wheels that accompany a sharp car outline..:-)

      Thanks Mark. I just played with the shutter speed till I got close to what I thought looked OK. 1/125th is the slowest I went to but I reckon I could go lower.

    Well done Isac but I think the shutter speed needs to be a bit slower to blur the background more.

    I don't know if it's age, digital cameras or I'm just pickier than I used to be, but I can't seem to get a sharp subject while panning at shutter speeds slow enough to blur the background.

      Cheers Alan. I am going to do some slower shutters and see what happens. all the way down to 1/30 second. Most of these cars are doing around 60km/Hr and according to the experts, the subject traveling speed helps with shutter speed selection. Only one way to find out I guess.

    I's a visit to the race track for you Isac, for some fast stuff

      Not likely mate. I took many of trotters back in the day but I don't know how fast they were going. I used to do school carnivals and got some good shots of kids in the running races.

      I have enjoyed Bathurst and the super bikes at philip island.

      You are a well traveled man Hans. I don't have to go far to get cars racing around, they are in our streets daily.

    I tried a slower shutter speed. These are all 1/80th second. I prefer more background blur so next effort will be Shutter Priority, AI Servo High Speed, 1/30th. I'll see what happens.

      A bit like shooting a rifle! You have to keep moving while you pull the trigger! You seem to be doing pretty good. Birds in flight next

        Thanks Hans. It's just practice I guess and playing with the camera settings. This morning's efforts were a complete failure, so back to basics.
        Definitely no more bird shots from me.

      These seem to have worked out pretty well. Fairly sure if I tried that you would think I had multi exposures in one frame from the camera shake.

        Thanks A&B. These settings did work out OK. These cars were doing around 60km/hr so 1/80th second looks to be a good starting point. Some say the shutter priority mode using AI servo is good too but I tried that this morning and it was not good. Some more experimenting will need to be done I guess. You should give panning a try and see what you come up with.

        I have tried it but never as low a 1/80th, and on horses not cars, so the effect was limited.

        Cars are easier A&B. Horses have a lot of moving parts and at 1/80th parts will always be blurry. That's OK too as it can add to the speed effect. Cars though only have the wheels spinning which helps capture the speed motion. Some shutter speeds can go as low as 1/25. I'm only experimenting but it's good fun and a great learning curve.
