Ok so the following photos were taken with the very slow kit lens that came with my xt. There is a bit of sensor dust noticeable in a few of the photos. They are not sharp by any stretch of the word but i can thank my "really" good lens for that. The blur that the lens created does look kind of cool though, so now i will stop talking and you can see them! C&C is welcome.












sorry for so many.

far from easy to master.

i have to try some of these with my new camera. sometimes it's luck sometimes it's skill to get these shots.

looks like you did a decent job.

I would crop them a little though.

Already a member, but have never posted anything because, well my photos aren’t exactly great yet, so im just lerking, taking notes and applying, until i get a somewhat decent photo. i got some better pans the day before of random cars, but i guess i was just to excited to be shooting my car that i didn’t exactly sweep very well, i think that is what created so much unwanted blur in the photos.
Whats your user name on POTN?

That’s a good list of lens ect. The 24-70mm F2.8L is awesome im jealous, and just like everyone else i would love a 70-200mm F2.8 IS but as a college student funds do not come easy. The xt is not my first slr but it is my first dslr. You have more than i do, all i have is the kit lens, a decent tripod and the usual lens filters.

if you have some fabrication skills, you could build a small arm that reaches out from unde rhte car to attach the camera to...that owuld be the best way tp get a moving shot IMO

Yeah thats a good idea, but knowing myself i would worry constantly that even at the slow speeds that would be needed to achieve the desired effect, the rig would break sending my investment to its grave. I still owe my parents the $650 for the camera, so until i pay them back i don’t think im going to try any risky ventures with my camera. Iv seen peoples photos like your talking about and they are very cool.

Well then i cant wait 'til march, for you and for me, i want to see your speed3! Oh, and the tint is 20% all around (of course not the windshield) done by sunsation window tininting out of littleton, they (or should i say he, its run out of his garage) did an A+++ job. here is his website --> http://www.sunsationtint.com/ <--.

looks good i like this one but if the car wasnt so blurry it would be a great bg with a little photoshop done to it...practice makes perfect :) good pics though

Thanks, yeah the camera auto focused on my license plate so its rather sharp where the plate is but nothing else.
