thank you! i was trying to see how slow i could get the shutter and still get decent focus. i took alot of pics, but that was very slow, i lucked out on that one! it was fun working on the panning, but i like sharp pictures with narrow dof! here is one of my favorites of the day.

Question, how close were you to the bikes, and what focal length lense were you using? Okay, that`s really two questions.

Hmmm, I`m nowalso wonering now about using a good strong flash to fill in some of the shadow area. It might be worth a try, what the heck ya know. If my kooky flash idea doesn`t work, Idon`t think it`ll cause the earth to break out of orbit and crash into the sun.

most of the pics, where they are leaning towards me, probably about 100-200 feet away. the one where its leaning away from me, about 300-400 feet away. my lens is a 50-200mm 2.8-3.5 the flash is a good idea but i don't think very practical. if i could get at different places on the track it would be alot easier and much better on the angles. mainly i was practicing my slow shutter speed and panning. if i would have opened up the aperture the pics would have been really sharp, but no motion blur, and with race cars, bikes, etc. you want that blur! let me know how the flash idea works. john

It looks like you've got this "panning" thing down!

Great shots!

From that distance, a fill flash wouldn`t work, unless it was set with a cable. If you could get like 25~30 feet away it might. There used to bea local stock car track near me and the track photographer used to get about that close to the cars while they were in the turn. Yes, he did sign a insurance liability release.
