烟花


虽然昙花一现
却代表送旧迎新
也许价格不菲
却代表富足年年

烟花的灿烂与缤纷
让人们 惊叹不已

沉静的夜空
因这霎那光辉
露出骄傲的脸孔

天真无邪的孩童们
因这短暂的绚丽
留着永恒的丝丝记忆

唯一真正天长地久的
不正是人们心中的
曾经甜蜜的记忆
以及对未来的曈憬吗

Panning Shot

Photography is an interesting hobby. The same action or scene, if shot with different camera setting will yield very much different effect and feel.

I came across the panning shot technique through Digital Camera magazine and found the technique to be innovative and amazing. By using the panning technique, the image of the moving subject could be made sharp whereas the background was made blurry to give the photograph a sense of motion.

The photograph above was the first time I tried out the panning shot. After a series of trial shots with unsatisfactory result, I finally got a reasonable one. Eventhough the image of my little one here was not as sharp as I wanted it to be, it is at least still acceptable to me.

I will need much more practice to improve on the skill.


Unlike the panning shot where I set the shutter speed to relatively low (1/10 second) and move my camera in the direction of the motion while taking the photo, the photograph here was taken with very fast shutter speed (1/4000 second) with the purpose to freeze the action. The child in motion and the background both remain sharp with this setting.

Don't you think photography is interesting?
