Songbird Cline level-classic 6/8/2008 10:47:42 AM

spectacular!! HOW do you do the panning technique? #6034073

David W. Orias 6/8/2008 11:10:29 AM

Thanks everyone. Sorry for the late reply. The email notification must have been off.

It is the same panning technique that one uses to photograph racing cars or other moving objects. I just needed to find the right shutter speed to create the best effect and not lose too many shots in the process. #6034128

Songbird Cline level-classic 6/8/2008 11:48:04 AM

your work is AMAZING!! #6034231

f/22 1/4 second 600 mm focal length

Shot from the Breakwater in Santa Barbara, California using a panning technique in conjunction with a very slow shutter speed before sunrise to pick up the sky colors in the wave and water.
