Cars in motion

I have a lot of fun photographing just about anything in motion.  Thinking about how a picture could look, using different techniques to realize that and then the element of luck throwing in a wildcard or two.  Here are a few car shots from last year which came together pretty well.

Night suits this type of photography as the darkness allows for slower shutter speeds.  I set a longer exposure, often between 1/10th and 1/50th of a second, and then pan with the vehicle as it passes by.  The background blurs and, hopefully, the vehicle remains in sharp focus.

And then, sometimes, you find a car just sitting patiently in an empty parking lot in Montréal under a light rain in the early morning that simply looks amazing.
