Tuesday’s Tip #6:
Although I haven’t covered the fundamentals of photography here (yet! It’s a long one so I’m working up to it.), you’re probably aware that using a faster shutter speed helps capture moving objects. Basically, you’re trying to catch the object and stop it in motion.
But, what about using a slow shutter speed? If you are unfamiliar with this concept, you might be thinking that sometimes objects are moving too fast to capture with slow shutter speeds, so how does that work? Well, you pan. That’s an action folks! Panning is a technique that involves following the moving object with your camera. It can be tricky to master, but the effect is a blurred background, which conveys movement, and a sharp (or relatively sharp) moving object. It’s pretty cool. When I get my act together, I will include photos related to each tip, but for now maybe you can Google it!
