Have you ever tried photographing a moving object?
This is your chance.
Take a photo of a moving car, bicycle, motorcycle, runner, animal, whatever.
You can shoot the main subject as stationary with the background or foreground blurred by panning with your camera, or you can convey speed by letting your subject(s) blur as it races past.
Here are some tips for you:
“When you’re panning, keep your elbows out, keep your body loose, and swing your whole body with the camera … and run at the same pace as what you’re panning.”
"I’ve found that panning seems to work best with moving subjects that are on a relatively straight trajectory which allows you to predict where they’ll be moving to. Objects that are moving side to side are challenging and can result in messy looking shots as the motion blur can be quite erratic."Mastering Panning – Photographing Moving Subjects
