Panning in photography is the act of capturing objects on the move. It’s like in sports or action photography. Your target is moving at the moment of exposure. As a result, you get a picture with a subject clearly caught on camera. However, the rest remains blurred in the background.
To be honest, panning is nothing new. Panning has been side by side with photography from the getgo. Let’s move back in history and recall the photographers who had no chance to capture fast moving objects without moving a camera synchronously with their subjects. Fortunately, nowadays we have film that is fast enough to give photographers fast shutter speed and a chance to shoot moving objects.
More and more people are into enhancing their panning skills. So, I’ve put together 77 stunning examples of panning photography which were taken by aspiring and skilled photographers. Just browse through the images to get inspired!
