Nice pix! I like the 1st two as low angles always make moving cars look more dramatic. Were you hanging out of the boot?
Just one correction though - such photos are known as tracking shots as you were in another car moving at the same speed, thus you did not move your camera in a panning motion. Panning is when you are stationary and you 'pan' to shoot a moving car. Cheers!
Thanks for the input guys, I took these tracking (not panning) shots like haruchan said. I got another car parallel to the subject and snap... but a good understanding of panning is essential before doing this, thank god for digital =)
Haru: Never knew it was called tracking... :thumbsup:
i love the 1st pic.
tim, u hv improved alot... and u did justice to the new toys u bought huh! :thumbsup:
tim, hope u dont mind i ask 1 qn (open to all) which i believe wud help improve the pics. with such a nice tracking (i never know it is called tracking too) shots, it wud be perfect to get the nice blue and clear sky. so, how can one obtain a clear blue sky with white clouds but without underexposing the vehicle nor overexposing the sky? it is not as easy as meter the sky, fill-in with flash techniq thingy as cam was fixed to an arm and triggered via a remote.
scud: thanks... nice blue sky depends on s'pore's weather which rarely happens. Because of the humidity, s'pore's sky rarely has thick fluffy clouds but more like smoky ones... eg. s'pore sunsets. Because of slow shutter speeds, overexposure requires ND filter in daytime shots & evening shots require decent metering knowledge. these pics originally had a light blue sky color but postprocessing changed that to highlight the car. Hope that helps... so are my pics "overexposed or underexposed"(tm)
maxim: I took abt 600 tracking shots for this series =)
