York at Speed: Pan view of a GNER HST.

I used my Nikon F3T with a 105mm Nikkor lens loaded with Fujichrome. To achieve the sense of motion, I panned the front of the HST while using a comparatively slow shutter speed (about 1/30th of a second). The key to a successful pan image is to start panning well-before pressing the shutter and continuing the pan motion after the shutter has been released.

The key to a successful pan image is to start panning well-before pressing the shutter and continuing the pan motion until after the shutter has been released. Turn your whole body and not just the camera.

I exposed this panned view of a GNER HST on the East Coast Mainline near the York station in December 1999.

A similar photo appeared in my book Railway Masterpieces published by Krause Publications in 2002.
