Pan­ning For gold

Photo Plus - - The Apprentice -

Samo wanted to show Tadej how to set his cam­era up for dynamic pan­ning shots us­ing an ex­tended shut­ter. “We were us­ing the 70-200mm lens with an ND fil­ter at­tached,” he says. “I got Tadej to start off with a shut­ter speed of 1/30 sec in Av mode and a low ISO to help reach that slower ex­po­sure in the sum­mer sun.

“It’s im­por­tant to fire the shut­ter and fol­low the ath­lete through the frame, but it’s also a bit of a lot­tery with the shots you get. The face al­ways needs to be sharp (if you can see it), and I like the hel­met to be sharp too. Con­sider your back­ground care­fully when you’re de­cid­ing when to fire. Colourful ele­ments be­come eye-catch­ing when they’re blurred across the frame.”
