Panning (day 9)

The idea is to use a semi long exposure time and follow the a moving target with camera. The resulting shot should have a motion blurred background and the target in focus.

I played around with this technique and it is quite hard to do right. Out of several shots this was the only one that was halfway decent.

It would probably take some training but would be a nice technique to master. I like how the technique can be used to “freeze” a subject in time while still conveying motion.
