I was asked by a racing team to take a few pictures at their races. I
only had one race to attend before I had to leave for another
appointment. I was a bit unsure of which shutter speed to chose but
tried my hand by panning the camera without the horses at the speed
I imagined they would come by. Turned out to be the exact shutter
speed I wanted. The horses flew by so quickly and I literally only got 5
shots before they were gone. Those four shots are all keepers but this
one is my favorite. This is the first time ever I did any event like this. I
usually only take pics of my children at home.
