Default Playing w/ Panning

Version 2 of the firmware added a new Panning Scene Mode. I've been wanting to try it out and the Salem Riverfront Carousel seemed as good a place as any to get started. First; once it was up to speed it was constant and predictable. Second; great color. I did discover the horses that went up-and-down as they went round-and-round are trickier than the ones fixed to the floor.

I'm not sure what the Panning Scene Mode adds that you couldn't do in settings yourself. It just seemed like the quick route without a lot of experimentation.

A very interesting series; I like the effect of one sharp horse and the rest in obvious motion. It gives a feeling of energy behind the main subject horse. My personal favorite is shot #4; I like the composition that you chose for that one.

Wow those came out well for your first crack at it. At first I thought you have done similar shots with the chair swings, but then realized in these you are stationary. This would be a very good feature for Oregon...Go to Bend and photograph some mountain bikers.

Some very effective images in this set, all good but no 3 I like due to the posture of the horses head being razor sharp heading for a sea of confusion, it's as if it's pulling up being unsure of what's ahead, nice one Alan.

Thanks Steven- That was one of the horses fixed to the floor so easier to grab and keep in focus.

Thanks Drew- That's the plan. With the the carousel it was about a 30% hit rate. Can't imaging what it would be with the mountain bikers. Good thing film is cheap.

Thanks John- That one turned out to be my favorite also. Funny thing is, it's a tight crop of a "missed" image headed for the recycle bin. Now if I can only reproduce it on purpose.

Very nice set Alan,

Love the colors and the panning effect, low speed shots is something I didn't have chance to explore.

Thank you for the inspiration.

Marcelo
