To catch movement is the most addictive of all photography. To freeze movement of sporters, scooters and even horses one has to learn to pan a shot. I takes a lot of photo's to master this technique, and after thousands of panningshot I still I don't feel a master, in panning you're always going to stay an apprentice.
I started with scooters in Rome, where I come for work every two or three years. In my sparetime I practiced. Here on the road to the Colloseum.
After the scooters I wanted horses. They are beautiful and fast. I would edit this picture different now, but I find this flying horse magical to look at.
On my travels I always find something to pan. These skaters made my day by showing off their skills as I was trying to get them in my shot.
I think I made more than a 1000 shots before I got my best result. Years later again in Rome, the best place for panning shots.
I will always love panning but it requires a special focus that can hardly be called social behaviour. So I try to contain the addiction, but sometimes when I have my camera and I'm on the streets I can't help myself as the addiction takes control.
