Minneapolis Fire Truck

Panning a fire truck as it roars down Hennepin...

Minneapolis Fire Truck 6601

I've tried panning before and failed. This was my first successful motion pan. I'm very proud of this photo.

Nice work! I have yet to capture a pan that I love.

Yes! This is really great. Love the red; and how the truck is so clear but the backround is blurred, showing the speed of the truck. I'd be proud, too!

@ sara, I think this one was 1/80 second f/5.6 or so. I don't know if that helps or not. It's difficult. Keep tying and good luck :-)

Thanks for the comments everyone.

Superb job! A very tough shot to capture. I' spent a couple evenings taking this type of shot and tweaking my technique. I had many failures just to get that one shot.
