Why Did SpaceX's Falcon Heavy Appear to Curve Down and Booster Tracking

This is a question I get asked a lot in my launch videos, and Flight Club's excellent web-based simulator helps illustrate the answer.

Here's an excellent article by Trevor Mahlmann (ArsTechnica's photographer and a great friend of mine) on what it was like to shoot Falcon Heavy and Elon Musk.

Stitched the 2 vids together for people that can't stand Instagram's video player (ie: me).

Scratch that, HD version just posted on SpaceX's youtube page :

This video is incredible, but several scenes last only a fraction of a second.

I believe there are a bunch of stills that can be really appreciated individually, so I captured them:
