Panning a Motorcycle

Have you ever tried panning photography? It is quite fun and gives a cool effect like this image of my husband on his motorcycle.

I had my camera on a tripod but you could hand hold it if you can keep it fairly level as you swivel horizontally, keeping your focus on the subject as they ride by. He was only going about 20 miles per hour.

I had my camera on shutter priority set to 1/25 sec. You have to play around with the slow shutter speed to get the effect you want depending on the lighting conditions around you.

I had it on continuous shooting and I tried manual focus and auto and got better results with manual.

What do you think?
