追焦摄影 (Panning Photography)

On this day when my kids were cycling in the park, it was a good opportunity for me to practice some panning shots of my kids cycling.
I switched my camera to shutter priority and set the shutter speed to as low as 1/5 second and started trying out the panning shot without much success. I then slowly increase the shutter speed to 1/10, 1/15, 1/20 and 1/25. Eventually out of close to 100 shots, there were only a couple of shots with reasonable result. The most suitable shutter speed for this case turned out to be around 1/20s.
Panning yields interesting result but it requires some patience and practice to achieve nice shots.

宠物 (Hamster)


Our little girl had been persuading us to buy her pets. After turning down her request numerous times, we recently bought her two hamsters from the neighborhood pet shop.
As the owner of her new pets, our little girl is responsible to look after the daily life of the hamsters. This includes changing the food, the water, the sawdust and washing up the entire home of the hamsters. Whenever she carried this out, her little brother would happily help her out.
I recently bought a new 70-200mm f/2.8 lens, the images here were the test shots using the new lens. I wish to capture more images with this new lens in the new future.
