Tip of the Week

Panning in Photography
While we like to shoot things in action, ie: race cars, motorcycles, flying planes, we would like to keep some motion in the picture while our subject is still sharp. Example as below.

race

A simple way to try this is to stand by the side of the road and pick out a car passing by. example below



The key to get this type of images are:

*Set your camera shutter speed slow enough to cause movement as you swing or pan the camera (e.g. 1/30, 1/60 sec)

* Pick a focus point to determine when you will take the photo as you pan/swing

* Aim you camera at the car and follow it with its motion and take the shot

* Image stabilizing function off (Recommended)
