    Some Random Photos of MOTION

    Haven't shot anything lately but cows and horses. Yes, cows and horses. I live in the country and haven't been to the track since the temps started running in the 90's.

    Anyway, I thought I would post some photos showing in-camera techniques that can be used to show varying levels of motion in your images. Besides, all I've done is comment on other's photos for the past month. Now it's your turn.

    None of these are enhanced other than basic color/contrast/lighting. The blur seen is the result of slow shutter speeds combined with panning. Some were shot at very close range with a 17-35 lens (standing against the track wall at the drag strip), others longer. Some are done using the zoom-during-exposure technique (as in my avatar-STi pic). Just something to think about when you want a different look without software manipualtion. This is mostly because I hate the computer-end of digital photography, plus I learned these techniques on film. Lots of wasted film, I might add.

    All images are shot hand-held, no mono or tripods. I have both, but just can't get comfortable moving the camera with it attached to something. I wind up picking the damn thing up with the camera. Oh well.

    Critiques welcome.

    Peace,

    slow shutter speed/wide-angle/fill-flash


    slow shutter speed & zoom-during-exposure w/ fill-flash


    slow shutter speed/wide-angle/focus point left of center to concentrate the focus on the nose of the car


    Same as above


    Slow shutter speed/pan - nothing fancy, but I like the flames & Ashley Force


    Slow shutter speed / wide-angle lense and way too close to a speeding 10,000 lb Monster Truck


    My son's shot of me playing on the gravel @ ~25 mph. But he shot it @ 1/40th sec and panned. Not bad for a 17 yr old.


    2:00 PM, 1/40th sec @ f32, ISO 100 / 100-400 @ 275mm w/fill-flash


    Simialr to the last one (but at night). The flash really makes the reflective graphics pop for a little different effect.


    And lastly, one of my personal favorites. Again, very slow - 1/40th w/fill flash for the reflective graphics pop. Yep, it's a little blurry, but it fits my taste. 1/40th of a car traveling @>120 less than 50 feet away = some blur.

    And the cow

    Oh, yeah, the cow.

    Slow shutter speed & zoom-during-exposure. Very quick and dirty edit.
