got a bit snowy last night so i decided to work from home today. after shoveling the driveway (to wet for the snow blower ) i grabbed my camera and macro lens and attempted to take a snowflake picture. well i didnt get that, but i take a few others that came out ok. lesson learned; it is not easy taking pics with the camera on a mono pod, doing manual focus on a object that the slightest wind is moving.

Tough shot. These guys were going about 115mph right here, and I was 20 feet from them.

















I have a few questions for the pro's in here.

1. I shoot at 1/80th a second when i'm near the finish line at the 1/8th mile track and i'm roughly 10 feet from the near lane and 20 feet from the far lane. Most of the faster cars are going 110+mph. Should I go up to 1/100th or 1/125th? I still want the background to be a blur. Some of the shots have the middle of the car in focus but the bumper ends aren't so good.

2. I shoot with a NON VR lens. Would a VR lens help when doing a pan-blur type of shot? Or are they only for shooting still shots with slow shutter speeds? If they will help I will pick one up. Most of the drag shots I take are with the kit lens 55-200.

Thanks for any criticism!

A panning shot is only as good as the sharpness/crispness is of the main subject. If I cannot print an 11x14 with, at least some part of the main subject tack sharp, I delete the image as unusable.

I am usually working on a 22" or 24" monitor and expect to read some of the contingency decals clearly. My suggestion would be to quicken your shutter speed until you get excellent sharpness on the subject. Then, work on perfecting the technique of panning and you should then be able to slow down the shutter to create a better panning blur.

The owner says he wants to do another shoot with the ZR1. I don't think I'll have any complaints about that, although I might have to insist that I need to drive it!

All three in front of the plant would be neat, and there are plenty run down building in the area to shoot at as well.
