    who needs 7up when you have 2-up!





    not a bad looking Viper



    What is this??? whatever it is, it was definitely cool looking:




    Clean STI



    Nice bike:



    not sure who makes this one, but it did not have a lack of attention:



    day-glo wheels on the old GSXR



    nice old Kawi



    The Tree of Shame:



    2-stroke meet at the dragon, cool bikes that sound like my weed-eater

    Ever try a slower shutter speed and panning? It would give the cars and bikes a better sense of movement rather than looking like they are parked on the road.

    i usually run 400 ISO and use panning, but I ran 800 this past time just to see what it would do.

    Here are some older ones:

    most of the good ones are on the home computer....i will try to dig some up and post them from the usual method.

    Doesnt ISO just increase the amount of light? Wouldnt a faster F-stop be the answer?

    I am a camera noob too. I spoke with daryl at killboy a little and he had told me that ISO 400 works well becaue it gives the wheels a little blurr to show motion but allows you to have a clear picture of the subject. He didnt use 800 much because it might get grainy depending on the light and how big they make the picture.

    here are a few better ones using 400 ISO and using the panning technique mentioned:

    Real quick:

    Changing the ISO to achieve blur in your images is like trying to drive with your ankles tied together. You can do it but what you can do will be very limited. Change your shutter speed.

    ISO, Aperature (f-stop) and Shutter speed all affect the amount of light entering the camera in equal amounts. IE: changing one has the same impact on the other two in relation to achieving correct exposure. What they don't do equally is apply an "effect", which is a more involved discussion.

    As for attaining the feeling of motion in your images through panning, pick an ISO that is appropriate for your conditions (indoor/outdoor, bright/dim/overcast, etc.). I like 200 for outdoors in open daylight. Now choose a shutter speed below 1/200 sec then match it to a corresponding f-stop to give a balanced exposure. Move with the subject, squeeze the shutter release when the subject approaches the area you want to shoot and follow through. The follow through is as important as all the other stuff that goes into the shot.

    I have tons of panning shots on here if you want examples. Control the amount of blur with your shutter speed. I typically shoot 1/160 - 1/60 sec, with f-stop upwards of f-22. Shooting that small of an f-stop means you need to have a clean sensor or you will show dust spots, so check that before you go out to shoot. And learn how to clean it yourself. I have a tutorial for that and panning in here somewhere.

    Peace,

    Curtis
