“How do you get to Carnegie Hall?” Practice, practice, practice...

This is a difficult technique. 
1. Pic one part of the subject.  If it has eyes, the close eye.
2. Use your center focus point, and keep that center focus point on that one eye.
3. Use servo focus and motor drive your butt off.  Seriously, Servo focus will get more and more accurate in the 2nd, 3rd, 4th pic, as the computer can predict the motion.
4. Use wide angle and get close.  This will speed up the back ground relative to the subject.
5. Use fill flash.  This will freeze your subject to a degree.
6. “How do you get to Carnegie Hall?” Practice, practice, practice...

I mainly use panning when shooting the Grand Prix Cyclistes de Montreal. I would shoot wider angle but I don't like croping so I prefer shooting with a 135mm or 100mm macro. Below were shot at ISO 50, 5D MKIII. I prefer closer background so that the blurr due to panning is better (I like having some people to show the technique - yes I am a show off). The faster they are, the easier. My F-stops are usually at F16, shutter speed between 1/60th - 1/100th

I tried a few shots last night with my daughter.  I was mostly shooting at 1/40.  I started getting the hang of it as she rode along the road, but that wasn't exciting enough for her so she went for a much bumpier, grassy hill.  Here are a couple of my favorites:

I tried getting some of my son on a pogo stick, that's much harder to get right :(

Yorgasor,

First, I just wanted to say beautiful shots. You captured the moments very well while panning! Nicely done.


I don't mean to sound rude/condescending or be too much of a busy-buddy, but I just wanted to quickly mention that I'm am a little concerned to see your daughter without a helmet or even shoes on riding the bike. Also your son (who admittedly looks awesome in the shot) driving the Raptor should have his helmet placement and strap adjusted. I do motorcycle training part-time in the summer so I notice such things, and I've seen first hand what happens when someone is not wearing appropriate gear or not wearing it correctly.

I'll second that. No need to be a motorcycle driving instructor to remark these things. The second image of the girl on bike actually is unconfortable to me as it looks like the girl is about to leave some toe flesh on either the pedal or the ground...

Arguably, for the quad shot, the fact he is loosinng his helmet adds to the sense of speed though. But seriously, I feel like proper helmets are important for both kids and adults when operating motorbikes (and certainly a good thing even for pedal bikes for that matter).

Good pans though.
What a mess, my camera's sensor is full of massless particules that keep on trying to behave like waves!

I recently started shooting last year and absolutely love shooting pans. Here are a few of my favorites from last weekends race in Hood River, Or.

Hi Yuro
I like your pans very much - especially the first one. very intense and great colour.

I add a few of mine. These are definitely NOT action-photos.
Rather they show the relaxed life in cycle-friendly Copenhagen.

Nice shots PK, Ive learned if the background is boring and not much going on I slow down the shutter and start panning. The last photo I posted Chad was going about... 7mph which is not fast at all but I told him to get into an aggressive riding position and Ill do the rest. I shot a series of shots with Chad the other night for a bike magazine called Mountain Flyer. Really excited that Im starting to get more and more print work! Always cool to see your stuff in magazines and yet Im still learning every time I go out and shoot.

Love a lot of the shots in here especially Yuro's mountain biker through the trees.  I've been working on my panning while on holiday and got my hit rate up to about 30-40%.
