The need for LOW speed, that is. Not every picture has to be razor sharp. In fact, often, to give the impression of speed and movement, you need to blur parts of a picture. The background parts.
You do this by panning.
To pan a picture, you need a slow shutter speed. Like 1/15th of a second. Panning gives you pictures like this:
To do this:
- Set your camera to Tv/S mode
- Select a shutter speed of 1/15th of a second
- Wait for the car. bike, child, etc to approach
- Start following them with the camera, keeping them in the middle
- When they are half way, right in front of you, SHOOT!
To focus, you can either focus quickly, or pre-focus “where they will be”, or use AI Servo/AF-C mode.
You can vary the shutter speed as you like, of course.
