    I'm new to panning, any tips good would be great. Shot at 1/20 ISO 200 F10. I thought the bike was gonna be slow so I set the shutterspeed to 1/20 perhaps next time I'll raise it 1/40. any thoughts?

    1/20 is a very slow shutter speed for handheld, but if you were going for the blurred backround, i guess you have to do that unless you do it in photoshop

    I really like it, I think it conveys motion and happiness.

    Might try 1:50 at f/11-14 and ISO up to 400. Should still get the good background blur but more freeze on the subject.

    thanks guys, I guess the shutter speed depend on the speed of the subject too. If this is F1, the shutterspeed would've been higher.

    Does anyone think this is too saturated? I was having a bit of fun in lightroom, perhaps too much fun.

    Nice job. Panning takes a bit of practice...try to use a shutter speed of at least 1/30 sec on "shutter priority." Let us know how they turn out.

    Cheers,

    I like extra slow SS on this, it looks almost as if she is traveling faster than humanly possible.

    I think you are missing an all important "0", or tell me how much your F1 lens cost. :lol:

    It is pretty saturated, but it shows vibrancy and enjoyment.
