p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · 2013 International Boat Races


I don't claim to be a professional photographer, at least until now ( meaning I've taken it more seriously and been shooting a lot more ). But was invited by a very respected photographer to accompany her to the races. She gets front row seating right in front of the boats as they make the turn around.. And she used my images for the ceremony which followed a few days later. Here is one of them. I noticed this speedboat getting thrown around in the wake of the lead boat. I tried to post this a few days ago. But I needed to resize the image. Here it is again.

Looks like you had a blast shooting these. What kinds of speeds were they running? What shutter speed / Focal length were you using with your motion pan? I'm sure this was some challenging and fun stuff to shoot.

These boats were moving 90-100 mph. I was shooting in manual. Shutter speed was 1/125 I believe. Maybe a stop slower. I'll have to look.

Love the last one that shows the exhaust. Very well done following those boats!

Very nice.

Some of these were shot 1/125 and others at 1/60. For 1/60 at those speeds, methinks you did a great job panning/tracking the boats.

I bet it was loads of fun being out there and even more so with great seats!

Nice work panning these boats, you made good use of your front row seat. Would like to see more, maybe some different angles too if you did any.

Panning boats has got to be tough and take many shots since they are also moving up and down. What kind of "keeper" ratio did you end up getting on this shoot if you don't mind me asking? Just curious if its one out of every ten shots or something like that to get ones like these above.

Looking at shot #3 which I think is the best and with the white boat in bright sun is a hard shot ... good job ... also would apply in general ... in good to bright light ...

Drop to ISO to 100 ... and try to stay at f/11 or wider aperture ... helps with the backgrounds too ... shutter's good...

Shoot center focal point ... and set up ... in this shot ... on the contrast on the canopy ... use the histogram ... just right of center to get exposure correct.

and shooting manual exposure mode is the way to go with stuff like this ...

and do it a lot ... and make sure you have fun ...
