Trying to capture motion shots here by panning with vehicles racing by on the I-10 Freeway. I will be going back to try this method some more. I was using a 70-200mm lens at 70mm on the Canon 7D (which makes the focal length of 70mm 1.6 times longer – whatever that is). ISO 100, 1/20 sec at f/19.
Background is so important. I’d like to scout out better backgrounds. Timing the pan at 1/20 sec with the fast moving freeway traffic, or any movement for that matter, takes some getting used to and I’m not there yet.
Jen #1. It was soooo windy by the windmills off the I-10 last night. Keeping our eyes open was a struggle. I enjoyed watching Jen dance around in the sand just off the freeway. The wind was like music to her. She loves movement.
See what I mean about Jen enjoying the windy night?
Now if I could get Jen relaxed (like she is here) to look at the camera and not make funny faces because she feels uncomfortable.
Looking back east for the 3 minutes of interesting color.
Five feet away from the freeway cars, Jen takes in the setting sun.
8:00pm. We stayed another half hour.
