panning

Unread postby aa los banos » Thu Apr 14, 2011 3:10 am

i usually tag along with my buddies when they shoot motorbikes/car racing/or any sports, not only for the models in the pits :wink: , but to have a feel on this arena

mostly, i like to shoot these machines with the riders in action, in panning mode to add drama and to capture the sense of speed....in my hundreds of attempts, so far, i just have 2 keeper shots to share both taken with my a200 :D

You could not really ask for a better panned background than the b/w one. Excellent. You are good at editing for your best shots.

thanks david :D

at first, i was really happy with the coloured version but after reading a magazine i was somehow inspired to convert it to b/w, and i think it has an impact visually compared to the other version :)
