My First Panning Shot

Posted by Kristan Tuesday, January 5, 2010

I'm definitely back at school, and life there is pretty fast. Since the midterm examinations are coming, school requirements are the worst!

Well to much for the current happening around. Last Christmas break, I'm a bit relaxed from the school pressures. One way to do this is to do outdoor photography. Since I am a bit much more of a beginner, I tried other techniques that I wasn't able to do before. My latest tryout shot is all about panning, and this photo is my very first panning shot.

Panning, in Photography term, is a shooting technique where a shooter is focused on a moving subject, keeping it into the same position while moving until the duration of the exposure. The use of longer exposure and slower shutter speed blurs the background while keeping the subject focused, thus giving the photo a more dramatic effect.

In this photo, I didn't use a tripod so pardon me for a quite poor output. With a 42mm focal lenght, I set the shutter speed to 1/20 and f5.6 for the aperture. So, this is my first panning shot. Practice makes perfect!
