Just a quickie fix. Been very busy at work and will be again tomorrow, so uploading this whilst I'm at home briefly.

Another from the BTTC weekender 15th Oct. From the Renault Sport race. Thats about that! Same details/technique as the rest of my panning shots! Nice bit of light though Smile

Again Rob, as with your other panned shots - just the right shutter speed for me. Fabulous car detail and the perfect amount of movement in those wheels.

Still unsure about the angles but thats just me, not a car 'togger, probably the done thing!!

Difficult call really Paul, most shots of the cars will look a bit dull with the car dead centre and panned straight. Only really works when there are a couple of cars in the shot and they're racing (like this or this). If you're really close in - as per my formula bmw shot from a few days back then moving to the diagonal helps the car fill the frame. By their nature they're long and thin, which would otherwise leave a lot of space top to bottom.

The alternative is very close in shots (which I've got a few of) where the car is cropped around the edges and just a portion of it fills the frame (like this or this).

Not that I know anything about it, just take what I like. :o)

Don't get me wrong, I'm not criticising your work in anything other than a naive way. I used to shoot rally stages many moons ago and I did suffer from the same problem of dead ground above and below the subject, but judicious cropping sorted that. Probably just personal preferences.

Having watched programmes like Fifth Gear and the awesome Top Gear, I realise that these angles are in vogue, but they seem to work better for me because the subject moves.

Christ I'm starting to sound like my dad now ... pass me my warm cardigan and stick another Val Doonican record on the gramophone!!!

Take it easy,
Paul

Was just providing some commentary on an otherwise quiet set of comments Grin Realised you'd asked about angle the other day and I hadn't replied.
