BTCC Brands Hatch

Postby Burtoner » Tue Apr 02, 2013 7:05 pm

Only had my Camera since October learning all about it, managed some great shots at Brands, but still not all great.

Here are a couple if any good?

Nice shots and you have frozen the action well.

You might want to have look at Gordon's tutorial on how to get a sense of movement when taking shots like these as it can give more of a sense of drama.

I think your shutter speed is too quick though I like the ones with the BMW 1 series and Honda Civic.

I made the same mistakes but you should get the hang of panning and shooting at lower shutter speeds soon enough.

I agree, nice shots, though a slower shutter speed and panning while shooting would give them a nicer sense of motion. It's not very hard with a tripod, though handheld isn't impossible either.
Good job either way, practice makes perfect anyways :)
