“Holy long exposure, Batman!”

[[Caption: Panning of my li’l hero]]

Probably my favorite abstract technique is panning.  Essentially, you set the camera to a longer shutter speed and spin, zoom, and/or move the camera to get a blurred, streaked look.  I love it.

One of the things that’s really fun [but ohmygosh, so hard] to do is move the camera at the same rate as your subject to make the subject sharp and the background blurred.

In this photo, my little brother was [not unusually] running around in his Robin costume.  So I decided to make him run back and forth for about a half hour.  This is the best result, and I’m rather pleased with it. : )
