Going for the start of a new year of challenges we went with panning. Panning is a good method for shooting as you can capture motion with your photo versus freezing it. With Toby on a short trip there was no live show this week but Roy and Scott have picked your best panning photos.
The weekly challenges are still going! You can find all the past challenges on the PRTV page along with next week’s challenge #prtv_architecture. Like always to enter post your photos on Instagram before noon next Wednesday with the tags #prtv and #prtv_architecture.

The perspective and the framing are prefect. The whole car is sharp, this is so difficult to do and you nailed it
Scott’s Honorable Mentions:
I love the movement in the curler, a real action shot. Nicely framed too.
Great panning action here. I love the colours in this shot and shooting wider really captured the scene
Timm N2T-1 This photo is from the archives. I've freshened it up a bit with post-processing techniques I've learned since the last posting.

Planes are a great way to learn panning and how I got the technique down as well. The background balances well with the colors of the plane which is a coincidental bonus.
Roy’s Honorable Mentions:
Using curling for a panning shot is a good way to think out of the box. Ben’s managed to get the player in the photo adding a bit of context and depth to the background while keeping the subject crystal clear.
Doing this at races is always a fun way to catch the motion and energy in the shot. I’ve done it at a few myself (and got yelled at in the process) which makes for a good shot that captures the thrill of the sport.
