With all that said, I'm enjoying this photo mode. It's cool how it mirrors real photography settings. I've been shooting tons of pics.


To a degree. Slowing down the shutter speed in this game only affects motion, like adding blurring to the background. However, in real life slowing down the shutter also affects light, but not in this game.

Another one is the F-Stop. To get that starry look to your headlights in real life, you slow down the shutter speed and crank up the F-Stop. However in the game, it doesnt matter what your settings are on, it'll still give you that effect, but only if the car is in motion. For some strange reason it cannot be done while the car is stationary.


Other than those 2 things, Im really enjoying it as well. Its not perfect, but it sure beats nothin!

The thing I can't figure out is when I try to get a close up shot, or really any shot, I am the camera one spot but it shoots it in another direction. Like if I'm trying to get an action shot and I autofocus anywhere, the shot moves to that spot and doesn't get anything I wanted. Not sure how to describe it but it pisses me off. It took me FOREVER to get this shot because I was trying to focus in on the car so that wasn't as blurry as the track. It kept aiming in other directions. I've fiddled with all the settings and I can't figure out why

The only thing I can think of is that perhaps the crosshairs of your camera were aimed at the top center of the car, which could be 5 feet away from the rear of the car (where you would want it focused). At the range you're shooting at, it would make a difference with your F-stop setting. If you aimed it down towards the rear, autofocused, the moved it back up to where you were, it might look the way you want it.

...I could totally be on a different page than you, lol

You can focus on a particular part of the car and then move the camera to where you want it. Also, if you want the car perfectly in focus, and the background blurred, press triangle and select "Panning Mode 3". That will track the car perfectly at speed and make everything else blurry. Make sure your shutter speed is low too.


Here are some differences:


Panning Mode 1: Even though I focused on the Enzo, it still came out blurry.




Panning Mode 3: Car is perfectly in focus and the background is in full motion.




I haven't been able to tell the difference between Panning Mode 2 and 3 yet. They both look the same to me.

Awesome shots. I LOVE my LFA. I didn't think I'd like driving it as much as I do.
