Panning Photography practice is not as dull as it sounds, but I got a few funny looks from people in their cars as I pointed my Canon EOS 1D Mark III with the 70-200mm at them!
This technique of taking photos is something I rarely do as the types of things I photograph would not suit the results.
Saying this it is fun and the effects it creates in the images is quite nice.
While walking back from my local town centre from a previous job I figured I would leave my camera out and take some pictures on the way home.
When I got to a road, I thought I would give Panning Photography a go. I was using a Canon 1D Mark III with a Canon 70-200mm mounted.
After taking a few light readings I settle on TV mode and dialed in 1/80 as my shutter speed and a ISO Speed 500. On the lens, I switched off all the image stabilising and then parked myself on a wall and began to practice my Panning Photography.
The good thing about roads is there always plenty of cars, so you get lots of chances to get into it and find your rhythm.
Below is a collection of the pictures I took, they are not framed up very well but the, they have achieved the goal of getting an in focus subject and a background that creates the feel of motion.
