A recent discussion on the Wilddogs forum made me think about this. I have been shooting from the saddle for a long time and all the time I have been concentrating on getting the best from the scenery ... getting some motion was now the mission. So after a few days of rain I managed to squeeze a short run in today.
Here are some of the shots.
I have used the Canon EOS 400D ... TV = 1/20th ... ISO = 100 ... AI Servo.
In order to get the most spectacular effect you need to shoot on a road that is "crowded" by vegetation ... open plains does not result in the same dramatic blurring.
The LT has the advantage of a decent Cruise Control but the cockpit-screen area is big. I will try on the GT next.
I am also thinking of changing the AI Servo to Single SHOT and then pre-focus on the cockpit and then tilt the lens to miss some of the cockpit as I shoot a burst.
I will also go out again and then use some of my smaller cameras and see what is possible.
This type of shot will be difficult if you do not have a fairly wide angle lens.
