Stop and Go


Had a great shoot yesterday with my good friend Thad for the Advanced Shooting Techniques DVD- which is turning into an outstanding collection of little videos on all kinds of photography tips and tricks. This image was from a lesson called "Stop and Go" which explores the effects of "relative" motion and how to emphasize perceived motion. Thad was riding pretty fast, but we wanted to emphasize him and make the background look even more blurry. The trick here was that the shutter speed was 1/30 of a second, and I am panning with Thad as he rides by, because the pan of the camera matches Thad's Speed, he is acceptably clear and the background is blurry, instead of the background being in focus and Thad being blurry.
