- Edit My Images
Hi, it was my first and last effort. The pics were taken with my Leica M9. What I did not like was my poor yield when panning.When I pan, I usually shoot a burst of 3-5 shots in the hope that 1 or 2 will be decent. TBH, that shot looks OK but could do with an even slower shutter speed to get more movement in the wheels.
Hi, the M9 is too slow for multiple exposure. - If I were to go into panning seriously, I would use my SONY A7R2 or the NIKON D800, with AF lenses and continuos AF tracking.Is there a "motor drive" option in the M9?
I started panning on film (which got expensive!) with 3 shot bursts. Digital "fails" are to all intents and purposes free, hence 3+ shot bursts now.
Hi, when I go to a vintage rallye, I typically get insider information on the routes taken. And for this, I give the organizers my pics. Not wanting to disappoint participants,Just takes practise! Not been to a race meeting for a while (can't think why not...!) but have found that my keeper rate improves through the day. I play with shutter speeds until I get the spokes of the wheels blurred enough (which obviously depends on the cars' speeds) and hope for 1/60th or faster; much slower and the hit/keeper rate drops a lot.
Hi, we have several kinds of events here. Meetings means people and their cars get together in one place. If there is enough room, and people do not get in your way,Classic car "rallies" here are generally static rather than mobile so photos from the ones I get to are almost always of the cars and other vehicles at rest or moving very slowly (the usual one I get to has a 5 MPH [8 km/h] limit on the site) so no panning required.
