20/365 Merry Go Round

f/25 1/30sec 400ISO 55mm Florabella Retro Vintage Action

Panning at the playground. I really wish I would have gotten more of the merry go round in the picture, but I had 3 kids running around, so I wasn't able to get many shots. I learned this in a photography class about a year and a half ago, but it has been awhile since I had done it. I am happy with the results! Would have been better if the sun wasn't so bright too. Oh well.

Thank you for the tutorial! I was wondering how to accomplish a photo like this. I love your shot, sun and all!! I might have to try it with one child running around another in the house. (shouldn't be to hard to get them to do that) We have LOTS of snow here and the merry go round wouldn't go round so well :)

Andrea said...

Love love love this and I personally love the lighting, it's beautiful! I learned panning in a class over a year ago too but only at night and with cars, I would love to try this out! How cool.

Oh panning, I just read about how to do this from a book I bought! Great job! I actually like the suncast lighting as well, and his cute smile, of course!! ;)

This is absolutely gorgeous! I have wanted to do a merry-go-round shot for years but they seem to be impossible to find nowadays. :(

Nicely done! Love the processing too. Very, very inspiring.

I am SO jealous! I couldn't capture anything panning if I tried.. and I have! Today as a matter of fact. Cool train going by.. I took about 25 photos. No joke! What did I get? A train that looked like it was parked along side the road. GREAT JOB!! I will bookmark this tutorial and keep on trying.
