Advice on a Pan Shot
 
1 Attachment(s)
Lots of clouds tonight while I was out, so I tried a couple of different things. This pan shot was one of them. What can I do to improve at these shots? What's good, what's bad? Thanks in advance for any help.

Jim,

Do a search of the database for 'pan' and 'John West.' There have been numerous posts on how to master this art!

A shutter speed of around 1/10-1/15 should work well.

Use F28-30

Try to focus on the front part of the locomotive or car.

Looks good as is - nicely executed.

As far as improvements - well, a sunny day adds some vibrancy and energy to further enhance the effect, as would a slower shutter speed.
