Slow ss of runners

Discussion in 'Sports Photography' started by Allan, Apr 16, 2019.

  1. I took images of the leaders yesterday but then slowed my shutter speed to capture movement in legs.

  2. I really like slow shutter speeds and sports.
    The first one tells a nice story. Nicer than the ones I have taken
    Thanks for sharing

  4. Cool shots Allan! I've used a similar technique when shooting T&F. I'll be wide enough to capture the whole athlete, and then pan with them as they run. Their head is relatively still, while everything else is moving. It makes for a unique image.

  5. Cool shots everyone! Sometimes I forget to slow the shutter down for these type of photos. I do use slow shutter though when I use flash and rear curtain flash for times I want to get more dramatic flash images.
     
  6. Nice stuff, Allan. I have a few of those from races I didn't/couldn't run.

    Allan, it's that kind of creativity I miss by myself. I don't know why, but I'm never thinking of this kind of pictures while shooting. Perhaps I'm to much a technician.

    Your pictures are stunning and marvelous.

    Kind regards
    Klaus
     
  8. Thanks Gary.

    Thanks Mike.

    Yes, I was wondering if sports was the right location to post these in.
     
  9. Yes, they can be interesting when they work.
     
  10. I did not forget to slow ss but I took many images that I tossed because I wasn't sure what ss I wanted.

    Thanks Nick.


    I know what you mean Klaus. In this case, however, I was standing in the same spot for more than two hours so I had time to think. :)

    Very nice. I also will change it up and drop the shutter speed. While not as slow, here is one I did this last weekend.

    iPhone Instagram picture upload, so I’m not sure how it will look on bigger screens.

  12. Nice. I notice the blurred bg more than the blurring of the runners.
