Master panning : convey some motion

Move with your subject to give a sense of movement while keeping them sharp

Panning is a great way of portraying the action in your shots. It allows you to keep the main subject perfectly in focus and well expesed, while the background is washed away in a blur of motion.

Panning is a simple tecnique that relies on you mastering your own movement. You will need a steady hand, or a monopod, and it may take a little bit of practice to get the technique  right, but the results are worth it. Follow our tutorial and begin panning with perfection.

Although you will need to use a fast shutter nice and sharp, you will also need to keep it slow enough to allow for time to pan. Start with a speed of aroung 1/ 50 sec and experiment depending on your subject.

In order to keep the subject in focus while you are moving the camera, it is important to use a continuous auto- focus mode. If your camera has it, turn on focus tracking, whick will track your subject as it moves across the frame.

Editing : Fake a motion blur in Photoshop Elements

Follow these simple steps to create a sense of movement in your shot

Getting the rights look of motion in your images can be a difficult technique to master. Fast- moving subjects are notoriously difficult to capture, and being prepared for the opportune moment can sometimes prove to be quite tricky.

However, there is no reason why your action shots cant not be given the panning effect. Simple editing techniques can be used to apply some motion blur to the background of your shot, allowing you to instil a sense of movement in the image.
