Round Robins: In Motion

The Round Robins are exploring motion photography this week. Terri of Ways I See the World thought this one up at the same time I did.

My personal project is panning, physically moving the camera with the subject as it goes by to keep the target in focus while blurring the background. This is my best effort so far. (That's one of my great-nephews in action. Cool kid, huh?)

For more things that whiz, zip, zoom, and fly stop by at the Round Robins Photo Challenge.

An excellent job! You captured the motion, but got the vehicle and your great-nephew crystal clear.

Gatina and Nancy - It's not a street vehicle. It's just a utility truck for yard work, and it's OK for kids to drive those on private property here.

Wow, that's really skill! I try taking photos out of moving car, is that the same thing? ;)

Linda said...

Definitely moving!!! :-)

Linda, he's actually only going about five miles per hour, if that. It's the panning technique that makes it look fast. ;-)
