At our July meeting this past summer, we talked about panning and then went outside to practice panning while I rode back and forth on a bicycle. You may recall this shot by Fred Gischler that showed up in the Lamp.
If you need some encouragement to try panning, this article (http://digital-photography-school.com/27-great-panning-images) has some great panning photos that might inspire you. Below the photos are a couple of links to other articles that will give you a refresher on the panning technique. The slides on panning from our July meeting are here.
