Panning Afghan in the Snow

by Derk Steenblik March. 17, 2017 794 views

On a wintry, cloudy day with lots of snow on the ground, I took my Afghan out to experiment with the panning technique.  Initially, I used a slow shutter speed hoping to blur the background to indicate motion.  However, with all of the flying hair and snow, everything was a blur.  So, I changed my settings, still panned on continuous shoot at a faster shutter speed which resulted in these "freeze action panned images".
