One of our term end assignments is a panning shot. I took a little time today to practice. It’s a pretty intimidating concept but after you’ve tried it a few times you realize it isn’t all that difficult. It just takes timing.
I think I like the second photo better, although I do like the bright yellow of the cab. I think the white car photo gives more of a sense of someone in a hurry. Maybe capturing the car after it passes through the centre of the photo adds more drama.
