This week's photographic super power is the panning shot. You pan with a subject that is in focus and you get an image where the subject is in focus and still, while the background is in movement. The secret is in the shutter speed. Set it for shutter priority (S setting or TV setting). To determine the best shutter speed, 1/speed in MPH. So if the subject is going about 30 mph, then you'd use 1/30th shutter speed. Burst mode is also good. Make sure you're also in continuous or servo focus mode.
