This is the best of a batch of 99 photos I took of my daughter on her bike. Yes, 99. There’s a good reason she’s not smiling. I asked her to bike past me at least a dozen times.
My goal was two-fold. I wanted an out-of-focus (blurred) background and an in-focus subject. By tracking her movement I thought I could give the sense of motion. I settled in on a frame rate of 1/40th. Finding focus is tough. Keeping her in the same spot within the view finder as I moved with her was tougher. The experience was frustrating. All in all, I’ll give myself a C- on this one. Good thing I still have 230 some odd days in which I could make it better. Putting the camera down now.
Next time I try I’m going to be in the passenger seat of a car. More later.
