追焦摄影 (Panning Photography)


周末是和家人小孩们户外活动的好时刻,小孩们骑铁马时,亦是我练习追焦的好机会。
追焦摄影是极其有趣的摄影技术,拍摄效果与一般凝固动作的手法不同,拍摄时必须跟着拍摄物一起移动,以达到清晰与模糊混杂充满动感的画面,是我个人非常喜欢的一种手法。
摄影的乐趣,除了不同镜头拍摄不同效果,也有千变万化的手法与技巧,让摄影发烧友之热忱冷切不下来,不断学习追求以达到另一种境界。
忙碌的工作,必须抽空用摄影来平衡,以免变成城市里的机器人。。。。
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)

工作越来越忙碌,上网时间难免少了许多,部落格更新几乎零。忙里偷闲的机会只在周末,和家人共度悠闲时刻,享受天伦之乐。
女儿一直以来都很渴望养宠物,不久前终于答应她买了两只仓鼠,成为宠物的主人,全权负责仓鼠的起居饮食。
每隔几天彤就为仓鼠洗笼子换木屑,身为弟弟的衡就兴致勃勃的帮姐姐抹干器具。两姐弟分工合作,之前斗嘴之事烟消云散,这是养宠物后最让爸妈欣慰的事。
仓鼠体积极小,且柔若无骨,好几次竟在夜里从笼子铁条之间的隙缝钻出来,幸好没溜出屋外被野猫吃掉。
最近也买了一支新镜头,就把姐弟俩清洗宠物屋的光景拍摄下来,也把小仓鼠的可爱模样摄入镜头里。。。。


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.
