Examples in Photography
Panning defined as a photograph
with a long exposure times where a deliberately blurred image is created
of the following conditions:
1) The camera movement with slow shutter speeds/exposure times (say 1/15
sec. or longer) while exposing a stationary subject (this can include
zooming while exposing the image).
2) The subject movement while exposing with a stationary camera, generally
at long exposure times (say 1/15, 1/8 sec., etc.)
3) The camera movement as well as the subject movement at long exposure
times. This can include zooming while exposing the image.
PS: Please note that for
zooming while shooting, you need a 35mm SLR or a Digital SLR.
Things to remember when
* Set your ISO to its lowest (for some cameras it could be ISO 200, 100 or
* Set your exposure time (shutter speed) to a long exposure. 1/15, 1/8, 1/4,
1/2 sec. are considered to be good starting points.
* Set your exposure Mode to Manual "M"
* Find the correct exposure under the light where your subject is. Try to
find the correct exposure using a standard gray card, Spot from the palm of
your hand +1 stop (Caucasian) under the subject light, or using trial and
error when using your digital camera. Once you established the exposure time
that you like the feel of, please try to get to the correct exposure by
changing the aperture opening and NOT the shutter speed, since for a given
subject and light combination, the correct shutter speed is an extremely
important component of any panning assignment. Please note that due to the
nature of the assignment, determining the exact correct exposure is almost
impossible. You need to get as close as the results make you happy!
