Some Tips on Panning Techniques
I love capturing the Motion and Emotion in sports and following my recent photos from the Mandurah 70.3 IronMan, I've had several requests to share some tips for panning.
I find that the most common mistake made in panning shots is having shutter speed too fast. Here's a few points that you can easily implement as a starting point and then adjust to find what works best for you and your style of photography.
As you become comfortable with the basics, change it up to what suits you and the circumstances. If things aren't quite coming together, try adjusting the shutter speed, faster if you need, but also be mindful that you may even need to use a slower shutter speed. Don't be afraid to go as low as 1/2 second.
Now grab your camera and go have some fun!
