Earlier I shared some images created using the panning technique.

I love the dramatic feeling of motion that happens when everything comes together and it works. Panning isn’t easy to perfect though, it takes a little bit of practice. If you want some tips on how to do it, try these articles:

As you might have guessed already – now it’s your turn!

Keep in mind you can do panning on anything that’s moving. Cars, kids, animals, carnival rides, playground rides, bikes, trikes, etc. – get creative with it.

Share your panning images here:

Simply upload your shot into the comment field (look for the little camera icon in the Disqus comments section) and they’ll get embedded for us all to see or if you’d prefer upload them to your favourite photo sharing site and leave the link to them. Show me your best images in this week’s challenge. Sometimes it takes a while for an image to appear so be patient and try not to post the same image twice.
