    I've used panning quite a bit in my mountain biking photography.

    Here's an example ...



    I use it solely for effect or to show motion. Laszlo's interview mentioned using it also for a subject with a lot of background clutter so the subject stands out a bit more. Great idea, will remember that.

    Hi Marko,
    That was very good. One question though, What does it mean by "the flash freezes the subject"?

    Does a flash go upto 1/5000? I didn't know that it can go more than 1/300?
    Could you elaborate on that please?

    May be a podcast on flash would be nice.

    Thank you so much.

    Even if you have the shutter open for a second, the flash burst lasts only a tiny fraction of that (say, 1/5000th of a second). So whatever is lit up by the flash has it's motion frozen in exactly the same way as a high shutter speed freezes the action.

    Then the exposure for the rest of the time picks up the background (called "dragging the shutter").

    No, don't get confused between your camera's flash sync speed, and the length of time the flash burst lasts.
