    Lightbulb Shooting on the fly, so to speak

    I think I would have waited until she passed the pole in the background. If you look quick, it looks like an accident ... just about to happen. Ouch!

    The pan rate is excellent ... and the subject looks sharp. A high-speed series might have worked well, also. Like they say, "more pictures is better to choose from than less." You might leave the camera in "Rapid-fire" drive rather than single shot, for casual shooting. You can always erase images.

    Look, I did not create the optical laws of the Universe ... I simply learned to deal with them.
    Remember: It is usually the GLASS, not the camera (except for moving to Full Frame), that gives you the most improvement in your photography.

    Sonynut - shrinkage, I think.

    Shoey
    Good panning technique and 35mm would have got the head.
    Don, I agree about the pole, better out of shot or behind the girl. But at 1/100th, rapid fire would have jumped the camera all over the place.

    Yeah it was in rapid fire mode and only jpg no raw so boooooo.
    I'm going to try and get better ones when were not hanging out under a bridge.
    Panning sucks and is really mode, any other tips and helps?
    I was getting about 1 out of 5 decent ones and this one was the best.

    Lightbulb Bright ideas about shutter speeds and motion control

    This is one of those kind of shots where practicing the technique makes perfect. Try panning on passing cars (God knows there are plenty of them). You cannot expect to get some thing like this every time, but using a panning head on a tripod can help smooth out the alignment and allow you to "focus" your attention on the shot, without having to worry about where the camera is in respect to your body, as you turn.

    If you have the sun behind you, you can often use a much higher shutter speed ... and if you boost the ISO to say, 1000 ... you will be amazed at the flexibility of your shutter speed control.

    Planning a shot like this is always better than being surprised by your "subject", as they whiz on by.

    Good luck.

    we need more submissions, closing in on 100k and 200+ pages!


    800ISO (some of the noise was due to upping the exposure in LR), but the grain looks kinda cool.
