    Two of my first rolling shots

    Although it doesnt look like the car is rolling it is.. Still brand new to cameras and would love to learn how to use it. I used a Canon Digital Rebel XT. Wish I knew how to make it look like the car is rolling.. Im just not sure what the settings should be on. There are a couple other shots. comments or suggestions are welcome

    We were rolling at ~45

    again rolling at around 50.. not sure what the settings should be at.

    Wouldn't it be ebtter to take rolling shots from the side?

    I mean if you take it head on you can't really tell its rolling.

    Yr shutter speed was probably too fast, you stopped the movement in the first two shots.

    slower shutter speed.

    i do rolling shots at something like 1/15 another trick is to use a longer exposure, but you don' thav eto have the vehicle at speed. i've also taken shots of vehicles that are actually pushed by a friend. i can post them when i get home on sat.

    fwiw, there is a decent book for Photographing cars.

    Yeah, you really need to drop the shutter speed quite a bit. That will end up being the moving difference. The shutter stays open longer, and grasps more of the movement in the picture. (Wheels, background, etc.) From there you start to play with exposures, effects, etc. But you gotta get that whutter speed down. The amount of movement desired will dictate the speed. 1/125 will give you a fair amount of movement. Anything from there you will get more movement. It becomes harder to keep the car perfectly in focus and in frame when you get into the 1/15 area. So play around with numbers in there, then once you get that feel, you start with effects, exposures, lighting, freeze flashes . . . and so on. Then practice for an eternity and sill fall short of Armins moving shots.
    Here is a quick example. Same spot, same speed. Cars moving about 185-190 mph.
    First one was 1/8000

    shot at 1/60

    Woops. Edit that mess. Lets see if I can make these pics small. Thats better.
