Panning in brief

I recently responded to a question about panning in a Facebook post.. Think I summarised the technique efficiently :)

... choose a fairly slow shutter speed.. maybe 1/60 or 1/100 second and pan the camera…the trick is to keep the subject in the same position in frame as you move… this results in a sharp subject and motion blurred background… it takes a bit of practice… sweep the camera like a golf swing... (i.e. through the shutter press and beyond) - Google Panning Photography for lots of further tips, advice and examples
