This Trick is Really helpful.

The trick I’ve discovered is to twist my body in the direction the subject is traveling so that I am facing straight on when the subject is in the center of the pan arc and then untwist my body to return to the original position. It is less difficult than turning while shooting.

Steve…great video as usual. One thing I would add to this technique, is when shooting, handheld in particular, position your body facing in the direction you expect to end the pan and then twist towards the direction you expect to start the pan. Reason being, as you follow the subject during the pan, you are unwinding and releasing tension in your body, allowing for steadier photography. Doing it the other way, you are building tension in your body during the pan. This is the technique we taught at the US Naval Schools of Photography for photographing jet aircraft in flight.

Good stuff Steve. Of course the new kids on the block will just do it in PS and some may pay attention to the details and do it well and wonder why all the fuss? Crazy baby.

Trick I came across is to twist my body in the direction the subject is moving so I am straight on when the subject is in the middle of the pan arc as I untwist my body. Easier than twisting as one shoots.

Love your stuff Steve. Love your approach to instructions, so realistic easy to understand and not too technical for the amateur photographer. You do a fantastic job. I’ve watched your videos over the years and truly have gotten a lot out of them thank you.
