87 Miles an Hour

Sports Photography is where I started all those years ago here is a panning picture that most people seem to struggle with, once you get the hang of it it is easy, this is 1/6th of a second on a 400mm lens (200 f2 + 2x converter) shot at the Power Boat World Championships in Nottingham.

For the technically minded do some test shots to get the background blur as you want it to be, then just pan at the same speed as the subject.

Thanks for the clicks, comments and User Awards on my last upload have a great weekend.
