Feedback on my first time shooting a motorcycle?

It was a pain in the ass to take panning shots of. So hard to get in focus. Maybe I was doing it wrong.

I was gonna comment but then I realized that I don't shoot this medium. But since you asked... Nice start !


I guess more practicing will correct the focus issue. I started last year on the stuff I shoot.. by switching the Aperture up. Whatever you shoot, try shooting with different apertures or even shutter speeds. Just to see which works and what results that you like from the lot of photos.

Thank you, are there any particular ones that aren't focussed correctly or all of them?

Sorry for that if I am. Just trying to get better at photography and none of my friends share that hobby with me.

I wasn't sure what you were focusing in the first photo. But then I read your comments. I know when I started shooting digital my hand shook the camera so I practiced holding the camera steady so that my images didn't look blurry. It looks like you were trying to get the bokeh. Maybe you could have bumped the aperture up a bit to get the face more in focus.. maybe f/2.8 or f/4. Lock the focus on the eyes and then move the camera to frame up the image.


Exif data

Camera Nikon D5200
Exposure 1/4000 sec
Aperture f/1.4
Focal Length 50 mm
ISO Speed 100
Exposure Bias -7/3 EV

Gotchyea. I'll try taking multiple shots with different apertures and see which works best like some advised. The face looked in focus to me. It looks blurry to you?
