Thanks! Me too.wow! what an awesome shot! love everything about it!
What is the traveling camera? And, what's the line across the bottom of the frame?
Thanks. Well, I saw this guy sitting impatiently at a red light, and got ready: crouched down low, set the shutter to 1/15, guesstimated the distance... When he roared across the intersection (and he really opened that thing up) I panned and clicked. He changed lanes towards me, so there was quite a bit of him getting bigger during the pan, I guess that's what made it. I'm just happy I got this, and hope it's eternally uncopyable. :biggrin:I'm still scratching my head as to how this was exactly done, but I sure do like it!:smile: Semi-diagonal pan?
Now THERE'S an appropriate reaction to that shot. Thanks, Chris! :biggrin:Yeah baby!!!
Yes, that and/or some zoom action. In fact it's just a Harley rumbling towards a handheld Olympus rangefinder.I'm loving that shot!!! Almost looks like a pan with a front-curtain sync flash.
Yeah - anybody able to see whether it's a panhead as well? :smile:Great shot! Love the pan!
Thank you panda, I have to attribute quite a bit of luck though.this is fantastic, great job tormod!!
Well, now they have a chance, if they go to <shameless promotion> http://hovmod.etsy.com </shameless promotion>And it should. This is the type of shot that Harley riders would pay for - if for nothing else, to use as desktop wallpaper.
:biggrin: I don't know how it happened. The photo gods were with me that day (maybe I should become a pantheist now?)...When I was scratching my head, I kept thinking, that looks like a touch of a zoom-pan and I knew it was shot with a rangefinder...it was making my head hurt premature of the wine last night!
I'm expecting it from the print shop tomorrow or wed...It really is an amazing capture, I would love to see it as a big print.:smile:
Thanks!Killer shot! Love it!
Yup, thanks. Stunned me too, as soon as I saw the negative right out of the tank I knew it was a good one.*stunned*
