I took a baby step today. Ultimately I want to be able to take a photo of someone else on a bike, a profile shot, the person will be in focus, the background will be blurred. I think for this mythical shot the subject will pass by me, I don’t think I need to be moving with them.
After some guessing and checking I ended up with a 1/50th of a second on the shutter, that and the focus are the only aspects of this frame I controlled. I may have been able to slow the shutter down to 1/40th, or 1/30th while still going handheld. The aperture came in at f13 and the ISO was at 125. I used my 35mm lens, I think next time I will try to go a little wider.
I’m completely open to suggestions. How would your execute the shot I described?
