The Best Seat On The Skytrain

best seat on the Skytrain

There’s a single seat at the back of the (newer) Skytrains in Vancouver that faces to the rear, and I always try to get it so I can take these motion blur shots when the Skytrain picks up speed departing the stations. Unless riding at night that back seat is usually taken, but if you have a camera and you like this sort of light-in-motion shooting it’s worth positioning yourself to get into the last car.

I love motion blur

You can tell by looking at my previous attempts of this type of shot with a point-and-shoot digicam (Canon A80) that having the control of a DSLR and a higher-quality lens makes a big difference.
