Ronald, nice job panning. Your image is very well executed. I have never tried this but can only imagine how difficult it must be. Any tips? Thanks, America. #34701

Ronald Balthazor

Thanks for the comment, America. I'm currently enrolled in one of the BetterPhoto courses. We were given an assignment to use 1/60, 1/30, or 1/15 sec. shutter speeds and then adjust aperture for correct exposure. You "simply" follow the subject with the camera. This keeps the subject in focus while the background blurs. A fun excercise but the more you explore the more technique and variables you discover. #95881

Adam T. Cowart

Worthy of any issue of Sports Illustrated. I agree, a complicated shot pulled off very well. Keep up the great work! #95890

Congratulations Ronald! Your panning shot came out much better than mine for this assignment! Although this was probably the most difficult lesson, it sure was fun and informative! Good luck in the finals! #115339

Ronald Balthazor

Thanks, Ron. I appreciate your feedback. It was a fun lesson and my "better" results may just be a factor of the number of attempts from which I had to choose. #115404
