If you want to see action and motion, check out these 30 moving panning images.

Panning is the technique of moving your camera to match the direction and speed of an object that is moving in front of you, while shooting at a slow shutter speed. The result will blur the background, and make the subject relatively sharp. The trick is to get your speed and timing just right – it takes a bit of practice so now is a good time to do just that!
