After come home say wanna try holding my setup... Last time I pass it to him, he complained too heavy for him, now he initiated wanna try himself.
Dunno about 70-300 man, 55-200 is also quite good leh.

Preferable lighting conditions for panning is somewhere between overcast and superbright sunlight. Bright enough (some clouds) but not overly bright. Or else - you'll need to use strong ND filter to bring it down, or forced to use super small aperture (not advisable).
7th July (Thursday) is the date set for makan session
Those who can make it, please put your name down here or on the FB page.
Need to reserve table and figure out if budget sufficient
The tricky bit about drift panning is trying to get two moving objects in sharpness... One yio-yio backside only, then both cannot be in complete sharpness liao, only one... Then hor, cannot take cars in straight runs - or else look like drag racing, and not drifting. So... perfect pose would be when it's slanted, with front wheels turned sharply (smoke from the rears for greater added effect - the greater the smoke, the better the drama, rear wheels tend to be locked).
And then... when they drift hor... sometimes tricky, as the car body not constantly facing you (like normal racing runs). It moves in slight angles - such slight angled movements will throw sharpness out.
Not say easy or hard... Catching drifting cars, you've got to be mindful of their poses. And when it's the best moment in trying to capture the whole car body in total sharpness. high FPS will help in this aspect.
Drift slow - but angled movements made it a bit tricky.
Normal racing is faster, which is tricky by itself.
And by the way.... Nikkon D90 | AF-S NIKKOR 18-105mm 1:35-5.6G | DI866 External Flashlight | AF-S NIKKOR 50mm f/1.4G <----- Since when har? Maybe I haven't been paying attention.
you mean the front end of the car is essentially moving laterally, but the rear is rotating about the center of the car? So you've got the rear moving more than the front?
There is a 'sweet spot' during the drift when the rear end stops rotating. Maybe that's the moment to capture.
That said, I do prefer to see the rear in a bit of a blur whilst the front (showing the wheels at a sharp angle) is sharp, to highlight the drifting action...
Actually, the rotating point is the front wheel portion most of the time, not the center of the car - based on my observations though (can't confirm this point).
Agreed, front sharp, rear blur (when you see it head on) is preferable at times. All car sharpness is also preferable as well. Depending on your composition - either will work.
