The Passenger Window

Last year at Nature Visions we featured Adobe Evangelist Julieanne Kost.   During one of her presentations she featured work from her “moments taken” portfolio.  To say I was blown away is a huge understatement.   I could not wait to get out and try this technique for myself, but of  course some things need to fall into place.  You need a driver and ideally you need an overcast day.  I would venture to say that if you try to do this while driving you are almost guaranteed to have a very bad and perhaps a deadly day for you or someone else. 

The technique is quite simple.  While moving forward find an object you are approaching and lock on it while panning as the vehicle moves forward.   You should expect a high failure rate but the few keepers you get can really be something special.
