I tried out Shutter priority just before I left on Tuesday and I'm getting nearer the standard I'm after.

1/125:

I use either shutter priority or manual for motorsport, never aperture priority. This is pretty much the only time I would say this, all other sports I use Av or manual and never shutter priority. That last one works well!

Can't tell if you were being arrogant as this is a text based forum so can easily misconstrue what someone says. You are producing some of the best car shots on Steve's that's for sure. Outside of Steve's there are some geniuses behind the camera shooting motorsport but they also probably do it full time unlike the rest of us. That being the case still more to learn

These are same settings I use when shooting motorsport, manual is very good when shooting cars in low light with lights on as the metering often gets fooled by the lights. The only time I use aperture priority wiih motor sport is when shooting through a mesh fence so I get a shallow depth of fieldand then I control my shutter speed with low ISO speeds and orND filters.

That's helpful, I've never shot through mesh so not considered it so will keep it in mind if I ever have the need.

I should be a bit more humble not Very Good just Good.

Seriously this forum is a great place to learn as the people are very friendly and willing to share there knowledge not like some other forums.


Mark is great example of this, he is always replying to posts helping people out with his knowledge and experience.

Dude stop talking now otherwise you will soon be a terrible photographer if you keep reducing your ability level!! LOL Seriously I would put you in the very good level of motorsport and it is encouraging that you always push the envelope such as you 1/13th shots shown recently.

style="BACKGROUND-COLOR: #000000"It is great that you are not shooting for money otherwise you would sell yourself out on conservative technique like me to ensure you are getting saleable shots rather than the best possible but reducing the hit rate.
