I mean that all the pictures that were taking with the car in motion are blurry. Ideally, you want to get the car in focus.

Yeah, I know. We had a flash bulb on a tall tripod, but it is really challenging to get the picture at that exact moment, while both cars are moving. Something we need to develop a skill for, I guess.

^^^ you should try (if you camera has it) the motion or sports mode or continuous mode where it takes a whole buncha pictures in succession. mine takes 11 in a row and usually i can at least one decent one. the shutters goes really quick on it.

Yeah. It really is no fun. Keep in mind tat you do not need to be going very fast at all to get the cool effects of a motion capture pic. I imagine you already knew this, but you need to keep both cars moving at the same speed. Try to get a good handle on adjusting the focus manually. Try first with people moving toward and away from the camera -- see if you can manually keep them in focus no matter what.

See, the camera's auto-focus is causal. It will focus according to what it sees through the lens. On the other hand, you are non-causal, or anticipatory. If you get really good at tracking your subject, you can adjust the focus according to where the subject will be when you capture your still.

Another tip (I just realized I'm probably not telling anything your mom hasn't already told you, but I'll go through with it anyways ): be very patient releasing the shutter button. Just hold your finger down a little longer and release it in a controlled manner. This can help reduce camera motion during the capture, and thus prevent some blur. Simple, but sometimes people don't think about it.

Good tips, when meine Mutti gets home I'll tell her about your thoughts and see what she says. I don't know if she was using manual or auto focus.


As for the speed, we had two BMWs rolling at idle. Maybe 2-5 mph.
