Day 323 – 09/24/11 – Round n Round

We took a trip to the park today to take advantage of the nice Fall weather.  As a side benefit, I was able to stock up on some images for the next few days 😉

Here’s one of my favorite panning techniques, letting something else do the movement for me.  In this case it’s the merry-go-round doing all the work.

  1. Amazing picture! How do you do that!?

      Thanks Vered, and thanks for stopping by! The picture uses a technique known as panning. You use a slow shutter speed on your camera and follow a moving subject. If you follow the subject smoothly enough the subject remains fairly sharp while the background streaks, giving a sense of motion.

  2. Nice shot Jim. You do a great job with pan shots.

  3. Love this!! Didn’t you try something like this before?? Anyway, this looks awesome! WELL DONE (as usual)
