Have you ever wished that there was way you could capture the sense of motion in a still picture? Well, today, using just our camera and a special technique we're going to learn just to do just that. Panning is the art of tracking a subject with your camera - blurring the background, while keeping the subject in sharp focus.
We'll be walking you through the equipment required, how to choose a subject & location, ensure the background is appropriate, and pan smoothly!
One of the things that makes photography a successful art form is that it can show a viewer things in a different way. As photographers, we notice small details, weird juxtapositions and the small oddities of daily life. We use many tools to capture our subject matter in a different way: a variety of lenses, changing our camera angle, using long exposures, or very fast ones.
But this tutorial is going to focus on the technique of the detail shot. By getting up close and personal with our subjects, we can show our audience things they rarely experience.
