Panning

Panning – Car at Night

Panning is a technique where you essentially pan and follow a moving subject.  This technique can show a lot of motion in the photo.  You have to use a relatively slow shutter speed, in this example, it was 1/15th of a second and the trick is that you move the camera (pan) with the subject in frame, and keep the camera moving as you click to take the picture.  It takes some practice and don’t expect to get all the pictures looking nice, but when it works, you can get an awesome result.  You can see the motion of the camera moving, while the subject can appear frozen in the frame.
