Standing on the beach I was panning from side to side. A number of people walking past paid me no attention at all, which at the time, I thought was fortunate as a I wanted to concentrate on getting the timing and motion right for the shot. Looking back I’m surprised that no-one asked what I was doing as I must have looked odd. It’s important when panning for this sort of shot to follow through past the point when you press the shutter otherwise you get an abrupt edge to the image. The motion I’ve found the best is to wind up your body to the right and then unwind (rotate) to the left pressing the shutter at just the right time and with just the right shutter speed – it takes few practices.
