did you use your body movement follow the subject or just pan the camera with your hands? or else you can use a tripod or the tips of using string in this link suggested.

its about timing really... just practise you'll get to know more about the right shutter speed to use in accordance to the speed of your subject..

not sure how it's done on Canon but on my Nikon D90....

I use shutter priority mode.

aperture varies between 5.6 to 8

exposure at 1/25 as a start for outdoor panning shots. I can go up to 1/50 depending on subject speed.

regards,

Argyle

Halo
For moving subject, set your "AF" to [AI servo] instead of "One shot" just like taking a boy running toward you.

Others setting use manual mode, F? = depend on light source, Shutter use fast speed.

You try sure OK.
Happy shooting:)
