Night Shooting Motion

Red Hot Wheels

Achieving a since of motion at night is not much different than shooting in sunlight. Remember to use a tripod to stabilize the camera and control panning. Pan with the subject to isolate it, but blur the background. Also try changing shutter speeds.

This time there was so much vibration from the cars racing down the street it shook the platform and the tripod. I did not pan with the subject, but shot at a slow shutter speed to keep the background detail. Nikon D70 & 18mm lens, f/8 at 0.80 sec, ISO 1600, ©2011 Jim Norwood

  1. Nice blur shot Jim! Looks like that last car is a C6 Corvette!

  2. Eureka Springs! I have always wanted to set up to do that when the antique cars are in town.
