Got 4 free Club Pocono tickets. We were infield right behind Kevin Harvick's pit box.



Shot these with my Rebel XT & kit lens(since my 70-300IS is in the shop).

I really like the second one. Did you follow the car with your lens shotgun-style? What was your shutter speed and aperture? There is no EXIF record, so I couldn't check it myself.

Yes,it was a panning shot. I am printing that on for the NG Colonel who gave us 4 GREAT tickets. The exif is on another pc but most of the shooting was done on auto. I'm not quite fast enough to make the quick adjustments for exposure and shutter yet, but I am getting better.

I shoot Little League using Av (aperture value).

You set the aperture and ISO, and the camera sets shutter speed to get correct exposure. That way you get the depth of field you desire. Just bump up the ISO to keep the shutter speed fast enough to freeze the action.

I got 4 more Club Pocono tickets for this weekends race. I'm gonna try this setting.

I would shoot in TV mode (you set the shutter speed) camera adjusts the aperture for correct exposure. You do not want to freeze the action you want a slow shutter speed to give the sense of speed (wheel blur background blurred by your panning) other wise it looks like the car is just sitting there.

Just decide what is most important shutter speed or aperture(DOF). That will tell you which mode to shoot in.

I go to Indy (practice session only) every couple years to 'pan'. I used to do it at 1/500 SS.

These are from two years ago;

This year, I raised my SS to 1/800. Less blur, but a higher keeper rate.

For the last 30 minutes, I went down to ground level for something different. Panning a 200mph car from the bleachers is one thing. Panning those cars at ground level is something else.

Got a few keepers, but I doubled my SS.

Thanks.


You shoot Nikon don't you?

Yes, I do. I could do the same with Canon. It would just be harder.
