2. Set Subject for
Action photography can be described as capturing the process of something that

actual movement by panning.
Freezing a ball flying through the air doesn't look like anything is happening.
You can't see if it is going up or down or even sideways. If you see a dog
leaping into the air trying to catch the ball, then the viewer will be able
to conclude that the ball is moving towards the dog and that the dog is in
the process of catching it.
You can blur the image if you want to show movement, i.e. panning with a
runner to blur the background as well as their arms and legs. Or you can
freeze the action in a way that will make the viewer conclude that something

We had a very succesful panning workshop this last weekend. We hope that

photos for this month's set subject!
Think about what you
want to achieve and go out and try it!!
