Looking back through my almost a years worth of photos I found one shot I took at the Manatee County Fair earlier this year that fit this weeks theme “Panning”. At this stage of my shooting skills I know my camera was in Auto mode, so for me to catch this shot was pure luck. The ultimate goal is to get the person or thing in focus while the surrounding scenes are out of focus. It is harder than it looks.

This morning I had the opportunity to practice a little more and set my camera to the correct settings. I caught this sporty BMW driving downtown. Its not crystal clear but, now that I have the hang of it I am looking forward to looking for more “Panning” opportunites in the future.
