C & C ...please be kind, this was only my second time doing rolling shots
Well, with your second post of "some more" you have created a thread that no longer goes with the Photo Critique guidelines which say: one photo only along with some SPECIFIC requests for critique (on lighting, composition, angles, exposure, DOF, emotional quality or whatever else there is you could ask members for their SPECIFIC critique) ... so this thread is going to move to the General Gallery. ("C & C" is just too unspecific, you know?)
By the way, they look good for first time panning!!!
But you weren't panning, were you? You were in another car going the same speed, right?
All of them are really good, only the last one it is a bit busy with all the cars and stuff in the background where as the others are plainer and simpler and the girl driving is loooking straight at the camera would seem more natural if she was'nt.
Like the honda one the most
I think the blue civic hatch pics would benefit from a slightly longer exposure to blur the rims more.
This may sound dangerous for either you or your camera, but try to get lower (or higher) just to get a different not normally seen angle.
For your 2nd attempt at car to car tracking you've done exceptionally well.
I don't like how you've butchered your first picture of the Del-Sol in Photoshop because it's far too obvious you've played with it. I'm going to agree with Eightball and say that your shutter speeds aren't long enough too but don't make them too long or else you'll lose too much sharpness and definition.
Try it again but pick a better location like 3 or 4 lane motorway so you've got more space to work with because your local suburban street usually is too narrow or has too much traffic....or both.
Keep up the good work, I used to be in this position and I still suck at tracking shots.
I like the feel of these photos. I can sense the moving of the cars which is really cool to feel that from a photo. Love it!!!!!
Excellent shots, ckrieg. I like no.4's viewpoint best and agree that the backgrounds could be blurred more.
If you want to get that you can of course try 1/30th or 1/15th, but if both cars would speed up some – go faster – you can probably stick with 1/60th.
Of Vlaams of Fries of Nederlands natuurlijk, fotonemer!
Like it, like it. But (there is alway a 'but'), I would change the angle on some of the shots. You are now sometimes creating a horizon in the top right corner that will always be less blurry. (Because you are not actually panning, the image in the far distance hardly changes). And that - Imho - takes away some of the speed you are trying to convey. I hope you understand what I'm trying to say. (sometimes my English is as bad as my pictures).
Hey Ba shots! Massive Props. Keep em comming. Find a Better back drop for the Rides.. But Great Shots! Keep it up.
