This exercise required me to take a number of images at different shutter speeds, which is similar to a previous exercise however this time panning at the same time was required. This , hopefully, gives a clear image of the subject but the background will be blurred.
I have to say that I did not find this very easy. My first attempts with cars were poor but I did manage to get this image of a car on a very fast road.
I liked the result but I think that the car should be sharper.
I then walked to a local High Street and started to capture images of people walking.
Here are the results.
The results, in my view, were a lot better. I Like the first image of the lady with the bag. Her head and her white shopping bag are clear but there is movement in the legs. She also stands out from the blurred shop background.
The second image seems to be a mixture of two people, it would have been better if the girls face was clearer.
The third image shows a man, the face is clearer but there is still movement in the legs. The pub window in the background is clearer but not brilliant.
The fourth image is similar to the last one but the clarity is better all round. There is still a degree of movement in one of the hands and one of his feet.
The next image taken at 1/160 of a second is the first image in my view that could be used by a publication or newspaper for example.
The woman and the background are both clear.
I carried on taking a few more images at higher speeds, although I had to increase the ISO and as you can see there is a certain amount of noise appearing.
This can clearly be seen in the last image of the man pushing the pram. I think that the image could be used but the better quality image is the one taken at 1/160- woman using a phone.
I enjoyed this exercise but I think that I will do it again to improve my panning skills.
