Introduction to Photography- Panning.

Panning photographt enhances sense of motion as it’s where the photographer presses the shutter but makes sure the subject is in focus and as the shutter is being pressed follw the subject on their journey as the photograph has been taken.

It’s essential that focus and exposure is set up prior to the photograph being taken to make sure that the image is correctly exposed. Use slow shutterspeeds 1/80th – 1/8th second
follow object with steady movement.

I’m really excited to start using this technique as I feel that it will really enhance the feeling of movement. This technique would be really effective following dogs, cyclists, cars ect. This is because the subject will be in focus but with a blurred background. Adding an incredible sense of movement and travel. I think this is very effective especially in car photography or documenting travel!
