Parking lot 'racing'
Posted By: emilf, 02-23-2010, 06:32 PM

Took a few shots here recently at a relaxed weekend ride around a private parking lot. Gave me the opportunity to play a little more with shutter speeds and panning since it wasn't as important to 'get the shots'.

Thanks. Since it was more of a 'fun' outing I was more free to play around. Usually at the races the guys want their shots to be more up close.

Yeah - quite a bit smaller than usual.

I wouldn't be surprised if they do. Most likely it's just more 'private'.

Thanks - somehow it seems like my keeper rate is higher when the stakes aren't as high. Not sure exactly why - if I start over-thinking it too much at the track and the guy I need shots of is coming around the corner?

Anyway - I had fun and the guys are loving the shots. It's cool how panning can make a couple of slow guys in a parking lot look like they're at Bonneville

Nice, crisp and colorful shots; good work.

For those looking to practice those panning shots, head down to your local skate park for similar type of activity.
