Motion Panning

I completely forgot about getting some images and a post together for Scott’s latest assignment: Summertime. He will be posting a summary soon and I encourage you to check out the contributions. Not only does Scott keep busy on his Views Infinitum site but he also curates a daily photography theme on Google+ called InMotion Thursday. These would be images that show motion through either panning with the subject or slow shutter speeds to convey a sense of movement. Check out one of Scott’s posts for more info (Panning in Motion).

A couple of weeks ago when I was up at Oneida Lake at Sylvan Beach I decided to try out some of the techniques in panning that I have read. I made sure to get my landscapes captured before heading over to the amusement park with my 35mm f/1.8 lens for some panning and ‘street’ type images. I won’t say it was a complete success, Scott definitely makes it look easier than it is, but I did like a few of the images I came home with. ¬†This is a fun way to capture unique images and I know I will be looking for more opportunities to use the technique.
