but now I'm practicing the opposite, Panning. (which is when you move along with the subject and keep them in focus while creating a motion blur effect in the background) Like I said I'm PRACTICING.... aka: really not very good.... yet. - Hey I'm being optimistic
oh and BTW all these shots are SOOC (straight-out-of-camera). I saw no reason to edit blurry practice shots, hee hee.
First I started off with my little 'dummy' er uh I mean subject :-P
I quickly learned panning was not going to be easy when I started my practice on a crazy dog in a SMALL yard, you never know which way he's gonna go.
Then Kyle and I took a walk and I got these two. (yes Kyle and Harpo are just running for the purpose of my practice, aren't they great?)
Then I tried some vehicles and actually had better luck once I caught on a little. Oh but cars are so b.o.r.i.n.g to shoot... but it's practice so I'll deal.
Here are some good articles I found that helped me understand more on Panning
from the dps website (digital photography school):
