A definition from the web

Panning is a photographic technique that combines a slow shutter speed with camera motion to create a sense of speed around a moving object. It is a way to keep your subject in focus while blurring your background.

 

This picture has had a few outings (no not that sort :huh:) on the forum and I make no apologies for showing it again as it is one of my favourites

Shutter speed 1/30th sec

This was about my 1st attempt and also the best,it's not easy and possibly a fairground isn't the ideal place for this sort of shot

I've tried it on a few other rides with no real success,but it's not something I do a great deal

Shutter speed 1/25sec

 

Easier on the railway although a slightly faster shutter speed to freeze the valve gear would have been better

 

Have any of you tried this ?
