I hope I get this link loaded correctly...
The image is the speeding racecar by Lartigue, and was taken in the early par t of the 20th century.
I know that the "leaning" spectators and the oval shaped wheels are the resul t of panning the camera while using a foacl-plane shutter set at slow speed.
I'm going to try this with my trusty old Speed Graphic. Does anyone have any experience with this technique? Can you give me advice on where to start with sh utter speeds? Does the panning have to follow the same direction as the shutters motion? What else do I need to take into consideration?
Thanks for any and all thoughts... -Dave
