This week, we’re focusing on a technique called panning. The picture below by photographer Pablo Garcia Saldana is a fine example of panning done right. If you’d like to find out how to create images like this with moving subjects, then this is the weekly theme for you!

2017 Week 11 Theme: Learning Panning

Panning is the next step on from the basics of capturing moving subjects. The panning technique begins with deciding between freezing or implying motion. The photographer then tracks the moving subject by moving as well. Getting good results is a mixture of practice, skill, and a pinch of luck. This week, I’ve got a short video for you to watch, then you’ll head outside in search of moving subjects. Share your panning successes (and fails!) with the community.
