"Truck Pull"

Truck Pull
Sigma 30mm f/2.8 DN Art @ f/13 | 1/15s | ISO 100

A shot taken at the Pacific Pro Pulling Series Truck & Tractor Pull in Kennewick, back in June 2015. First time going to one of these events and I enjoyed it. My fiancée's fam and I had a great time. Didn't get the best viewpoint, but still decided get some shots.

Opted for a really slow shutter speed to get some "panning" action going. 1/15s was maybe a little too low than I needed on this one (image could be sharper), but this was my favorite shot. Panning is keeping the subject in the same place in the frame by moving with them as they pass you by rotating your upper body and camera on the horizontal plane.

There is plenty of Youtube videos out there on this worth checking out if you haven't tried this technique. It's fun! Couple this technique with a slow shutter speed and you get this classic effect that's seen everywhere. Try it out!
