    I've been shooting drifting events now for a few months and LOVE it, but I'm always looking for new ways to make the photos different. A photog buddy of mine (who also shoots drifting) showed me this tight aspect cropping technique, and I kinda like it...

    Your thoughts?

    It looks too tight at the tops of the frames, and the cars are "crashing into" the right hand side of the frames. A little more room for them to drift into on the right hand side would add impact. Your shutter speed looks absolutely perfect for blurring the wheels and backgrounds. You are also set up in the right place in relation to the sun and the cars.

    ^^^So maybe a bit wider of a crop would help leave room for motion?

    my buddy drifts.. I like the tight crop but may be a bit too tight.. as Derrel said, "you have the right shutter speed"

    try finding a good shot that will get the car from the back but drifting out to play on the pointed the opposite direction of motion orientation.. just a thought.

    Shutter: Usually 1/125.
    Aperture: f/8-11.
    ISO: 100.

    Just mess around with it and get your panning on point and it's easy from there. :mrgreen:

    #1 and #4 are my favorites... But I wish the top of #1 and the top and bottom of #4 were'nt cropped so tight. A bit more space and I'd have no complaints. :)

    they do seem a bit tight. give the car a little breathing room. don't crop as tight. i like idea of capturing cars in action, especially drifting. very cool!
