I love playing around with shutter speed and seeing what different effects I can create in-camera to alter the mood of my images. For a school project about his chosen ‘special place’, my son wanted me to take some photos of him on the swing at the park. I got what he needed within a minute and then decided to use the rest of our time there to experiment with panning using different shutter speeds. The great thing about panning is that you don’t need to be a perfectionist – even when you get it ‘wrong’, it can still look really interesting and sometimes the ‘mistakes’ end up being the best of the bunch. I’m excited to be producing some content for the amazing new educational site Unraveled about panning which will be available in the School in October. For just $10 per month you have access to all The School’s inspiring lectures and videos and you can already see my editing video for one of these images on the site.
