Vicious Vespa - Street Photography
I am a studio photographer, so any situations that involve fast movement is not truly second nature to me. However, I decided to venture out of my comfort zone when I say this couple on a Vespa waiting at a stop light at Hollywood and Vine. I let my left thumb glide to switch the servo mode to continuous, moved my right thumb to switch the AF area to Dynamic while peering through the viewfinder in anticipation. When the light turned green, off went racing the vicious Vespa. I mean, look at the fierce look on the face of the Terminator as he carries Sarah Conner away. I panned for about ten shots at 7 fps and stopped once the front wheel crossed the finish line. The only thing missing in the shot would be a flying scarf to put the finishing touch on the driver's motley ensemble.
