Impressed by those of 40 stunning blur-motion images, I decided to learn this panning photography skill. When recently going to photograph the airplanes, I practiced this skill at the roadside outside of the airport wire fence while waiting for the jets to land. Here are only four images of motorists riding their vehicle which I felt a bit ok. Hope next time I can have some with much higher quality.
For the photography newbies who are also interested in the “panning” skill, it is suggested read a great article titled Mastering Panning – Photographing Moving Subjects written by Darren Rowse of Digital Photography School.
Darren said he found “that panning … work[s] best with moving subjects that are on a relatively straight trajectory.” According to my own experience, I thought this point is extremely important, because under that situation, the speed of moving subjects relative to the photographer’s camera lens is “static” when panning, which can easily lead the active subjects easy to be focused.
Another thing, from my pictures, one can simply find that a tripod should be much needed. Without such a photography accessory, my vertical hand-shakes were very clearly shown in these motion blur pictures
