Panning in Providence
I took the bike downcity on Easter Sunday before brunch. I wanted to put a few more actuations on a rental cam before shipping it back. The streets were pretty quiet, but I decided to run the Mark 3 through it's paces on some classic panning shots, etc. I'm not a fan of fake photoshop pans. I like mine the old school way. Theres no need for filters, just a nice smooth pan on the subject at an appropriate speed delivers. Some times you win, sometimes not. What started out as a few pans became "people in motion".
My greatest takeaway from the hour of street shooting was a simple affirmation of what I'm seen before. People aren't afraid to post images of dubious nature and compromising situations on social media but get mighty nervous when the see someone with a camera in public, even when they look their best!
I feel I should send a bill to traffic enforcement in the city- Positioned on South Water street on a curve, I easily enforced the speed limit for at least 15 minutes just by pointing my camera at approaching traffic. Nope, not a radar gun, not a secret agent for the NSA- just a guy with a camera folks. Feel free to gun it as usual and get back to driving and texting.
