In photography, panning refers to moving the camera horizontally. With a bit of practice, you can achieve some amazing results. For example, the subject of the photo might be crisp and still, but the background is blurred with motion lines. I must admit, this isn’t the most easiest photography technique to master. However, it’s a fun one to do and requires a bit of patience, energy and lots of trial and errors.


Try out the shoot-from-hip technique next time you wish to capture candid moments. It also gives your photos a much more refreshing perspective.
