Seen some demos though and it looks to have some nice and very useful improvements.

Just now saw your reply. Thanks. I was shooting as slow as I could, about 1/125 The location wasn't that great either, any of the corners to get a side to side pan shot I would have had to be ON the track or inside of the safety fence at least.

Not sure what any of that means My friend is selling his D7000 and I've never owned a DSLR so he let me try it out before I decide if I want to buy it.

Criticism is welcomed

I think it requires win7 or win8 to work. I'm using LR5 on my win8 right now. Working flawlessly.

^^^ First shot of the FRS is money! I think I would have cropped it a bit different, if possible, would have had more on the right side. Put the car more on the 2/3 bottom left corner. And a touch of tint on the mts would make them pop a bit more. just my 2 pennies.

I like to leave a little bit of a border between the car and edge sometimes, there might be a bit much but it's not so bad. The picture is a composite of the original because the mountains were originally blown out

NCOR good job practicing your pan. I read a great article once on panning you have to treat it almost like a golf swing. How I do mine is square up so face where my shots going to be taken. Then follow my subject in as soon as I'm facing forward I snap the shot but continue following the subject as it travels out. Try using AI servo for focus adjustments, also try and get your shutter speed lower that 1/30 for better blur effect.

Remember the faster your shutter is the darker your image will be and the more frozen in time your subject will appear. When I started panning race cars my first attempts looked like a parking lot lol. Tweak all your setting for the light your given, here is a one I did a few months back. You can see I was more focused on the 30 I managed to get most of the front in with the backend blurred for kind of a neat effect.

This was: F13 at 1/30 ISO 200 with a 200m.

Keep it up man its not easy but once you get it you will love the results.

Thanks. Practice practice practice practice. It's what I've been focusing on for a couple months now, especially since we are back into track season.

LOVE all 3 of these. What did you use to edit them, Lightroom? Photoshop?


Btw: photography newb who just got a Canon T3i with the kit lens (18-55 i believe?) . Before I read up on new/better lens to buy, what would you guys recommend as the 'basic' option to take decent pictures of a car? I wanna do a little photoshoot with my car and I'm just not sure what to have my settings on. It'll be a morning/late afternoon shoot when the sun isn't blinding. Full manual? Creative Auto? Auto? etc. Or if theres a website that you think would be great, let me know as well. Thanks

Read the first few pages of this thread to start with. It has all the basic rules for automotive photography.

http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/show....php?t=1263892

Unless you're made of money I would just practice up with the kit lens. I have found it is the most crisp right at 35mm. I tend to shoot in aperture priority or shutter priority, depending on what my goal is. I don't usually shoot full manual unless it's a night shoot. Never use any of the presets. I mean you can, but the camera's software is making a lot of decisions for you at that point.

Good luck and have fun!

Thanks,

I use both lightroom 4 and Photoshop. I do most of my editing in lightroom first and then I would take it into photoshop to clean things up. Most things I clean up in photoshop is unwanted reflection (removing myself/tripod from the car). I also use photoshop to sharpen the image up since it allows for greater control.

I don't know much about Canon lenses but I enjoy my 35mm prime (most used) but since my camera is not full frame it is equivalent to a 50mm prime.

Also I mostly shoot in morning/late afternoon/sunset, at this time I mainly use Aperture Priority.
