Panning and Pears

My plan today was to try some panning shots from the car as my husband took me for a drive in the country. This is much harder than it seems! If I could do it again, I would make a few changes ... different lens and driving slower. I used the Nikon 60mm. This lens is very flexible because it is a decent walk around lens but it also shoots macro. And it's sharp! The manual focus is a real PIA, though.

Anyway, it was a fun experiment. Most interesting shot ...



f 13; 1/60; ISO 320
Nikon 60mm 2.8D


The unplanned shot was a pear and a leaf. I used natural light for this shot. A bit of fill with a reflector. There was very little light today. It was getting dark at 4pm! So, I decided to use a limited color palette and go for something chiaroscuro.



f 5.6; 1/80; ISO 800
Nikon 50mm 1.4D

Hi Jenn
Those panning shots are a little tough at times aren't they but good attempt ...
Love the leaf and pear, great exposure, lighting and composition great. Liking how the leaf follows the contour of the pear and the background (table) has a crack/blemish in it which matches in with broken pear stalk adding to the rustic theme ..
As an aside was wondering how the photo would looked flipped vertically as the eye would naturally perceive a pear as upright ?
great shot and looking forward to more
weird when I was out this morning almost picked up a Cpl of leaves for a leaf theme .. now I'm going to have to wait till everyone has forgot this one. NOT!!

Oh good call! Thanks for the suggestion.



The panning is really tough. I am not giving up on it. Next time I'll use my 28mm and go slower!

Go on and do a leaf theme. Have fun with it!
