It’s the final week of the challenge! I’ll be running it again next year, so stay tuned if you want to participate again.

This week’s theme is panning. Panning is when you move the camera at the same speed as a moving subject so that the background shows motion. You, of course, have to use a slow shutter speed to show background motion. You can use shutter priority if you don’t know manual, which I wrote a bit about in this post on slow shutter speed. Below are some examples of different methods and I’ve included the shutter speeds as well.

If you have any questions, join us in the Facebook group. I’ll be checking in there daily to see your work and help you achieve the best results.
