motion


One of the skills that I never perfected in high school when shooting with film was panning to convey motion. It's easy to set up the tripod with a long exposure and let the subject's motion blur themselves; it's entirely another to shoot them clearly and blur the background. Within the span of 5 minutes, I was able to practice panning with this cyclist, a scooter, a SmartCar, and a Ferrari Testarossa without moving an inch.

You nailed that one! I've attempted that in the past and have never been satisfied with the result
