MOTION PASSED • When taking action shots of lorries it’s sometimes worth trying a tracking shot if it can be done safely and discretely. It might not be the easiest option but the result can be rewarding when you get it right. This shot I took of a Scania 112 artic of Adam Jones Group on the M6 back in 1993 makes the point. It captures the true sense of motion and, after all, motion is what transport is all about.
