Practise Makes Perfect

 Speed Kills

Outing with some friends and we did some "Hari Raya invasion" yesterday. While we stop at the Shell gas station, suddenly the idea to shoot a moving subject just came into my mind..and ya, I took the chance because that time we stopped on the left side of the highway. Panning is a technique that can produce amazing results (if you perfect it…. or get lucky) but is also one that can take a lot of practice to get right. The basic idea behind panning as a technique is that you pan your camera along in time with the moving subject and end up getting a relatively sharp subject but a blurred background.This gives the shot a feeling of movement and speed. It’s particularly useful in capturing any fast moving subject whether it be a racing car, running pet, cyclist etc. I’ve found that panning seems to work best with moving subjects that are on a relatively straight trajectory which allows you to predict where they’ll be moving to. (The Photo I took is not perfect yet..but ya, practise makes perfect. Hope can shoot a moving F1 racing car someday..^^) XD
