Hi guys, i tried to take photos of in "panning" mode but could not achieve the object clear, background blur effect.I always achieve object and background clear. :sweat: Can anyone explain how can it be done? Am using Panasonic FZ series.
yah..sumting below 1/100 can get good effect but depends on the vehicle's speed. basically, u need to track the vehicle throughout its movement, and snap while doing so... practice makes perfect.... this is really true in terms of panning....
Sorry, I realize there might be some confusion with this whole topic. When I say panning, I mean moving the camera so that a moving subject stays in the same position in the frame throughout the duration the shutter is open, in order to render a (relatively) sharp subject and the background streaking past.
A larger aperture helps, but the main criteria for panning is shutter speed. What checkers seem to be referring to is subject isolation, not the same as panning.
I tried google for an example. Found one, with a short write-up on technique as well.
I think you might get more response if you start a new thread (or two) in landscape and nature regarding the photos. But I'll give it a shot. The first is a nice sunset, but might benefit from a boost in saturation and brightness. The foreground looks a little cluttered - I like the silhouette on water, but there's a lot in there, and they merge with each other to the extent that I can't quite make them out. On the upper left corner, the roof (?) is distracting. See if you can crop or clone it out.
As for the bird (some kind of raptor?) it takes up way too little of that frame. Most of the time it is also better to have more space in front of a subject that is moving than behind it. When shooting flying birds, you may want to experiment with burst mode as well to see if you can get one with the wings in a nicer position.
I can't comment on white balance (and you probably should take my suggestion on exposure with a grain of salt) because I'm using an uncalibrated monitor at work.
