Day 308: 3 Photos for lesson 3

I'm taking a Photography course through proudphotography.com. For lesson 3, we have to take 3 photos, one blurring something in movement, one panning on a moving object and blurring the background, and one in which you practically turn a moving object into a "ghost" by using a really slow shutter speed.

Here's the blurred moving vehicle:

And this one is my favorite! Apparently, I've found another way to embarrass myself in my small town! There's no way to stand on a busy corner with a camera and tripod, and not be noticed. I don't know this person, but now I've got people waving at me!

I discovered today how hard it is to pan a moving vehicle or object. . . .or dog!

And in this one, I used my tripod and a shutter speed of 1/30, making this motorcycle almost a ghost.

AND, I think this last photo is even on the theme of angles for the week!
TFL!

Very cool and perfect examples. I love that the motorcyclist is waving at you, and how the third shot just looks like a shadow of something that's not there.
