33045 Little Langford 8 March 1986

A technique that I have only rarely used, but which can be very effective is panning, where the idea is to follow the train with the camera and fire the shutter while still keeping the camera moving, thereby giving the impression of speed. The possibilities of getting it wrong are endless, as to be effective a slow shutter speed is needed. At this time I was using two cameras on a bracket, which makes it even more difficult. However, it seems to have worked here. 33045 passes Little Langford on 8 March 1986 with the 1V25 11:10 Portsmouth Harbour to Bristol Temple Meads service.
