010: Panning practice

I wasn’t sure what to take a photo of on this day, so I went out to practice panning. I’ve learned that I used to try to pan too slowly… you actually don’t have to have a particularly slow shutter speed o get a panning effect (depending on the subject I suppose).

This photo doesn’t really excite me, but it is one of my better panning shots, with most of the car in focus.
