motion studies
Posted By: rfortson, 03-06-2009, 09:48 PM

Been catching up on some old shots and re-PPing them. These two were from a Tamron photo class I took last year. We probably took 20 of these shots and these were the two best I got. The second was better at freezing a spot, but I didn't like how he had already passed. I like the composition of the first better, but wish I had gotten it a little more in focus.

Taken with the K20D and the DA*50-135 in manual focus. Should've tried AF-C, as the camera does that well with this lens.





And just for giggles, I liked how this turned out (taken with the Tamron 28-75):

Looks like a panning shot. Great shot anyway.

Great #3 - I like the first two as well - good panning that is not an easy skill to master.

Thanks gang! I guess I should have said "panning study" because that's really what we were doing. It's harder than it looks, so it was nice to have a model agree to ride back and forth for us. Beats getting weird looks from drivers in my neighborhood.

Glad y'all like the third one. I thought it looked interesting as we were standing there listening to the instructor (Don Gale - great guy BTW). I've got sort of a strange crop on this one, so I'll have to see if I can get it to fit something a little more standard.

These are great. And the third is humourous and thought provoking, characteristics not easily achieved in images. Well done.

From memory, it seems like we were shooting totally manual (that was one of the lessons of the course). We pre-focused on a spot, set the shutter speed for around 1/30s and aperture around f/8 (we set the shutter speed and then adjusted aperture to get a proper exposure).
