Hi all,

I am trying to create a sense of movement by blurring particular objects while keeping either the foreground or background in focus but am having little success with my EP1. I have both the 42mm kit lens (which I though I could experiment with the the zoom) and a Pany 20mm pancake lens.

I was partly inspired by this camera club assignment in the Guardian newspaper.

Any advice would be gratefully recieved!!

Many thanks,
Toby

You can use longer shutter speed to get slow shutter motion blur and fix your camera- e.g. background will not be blurred and people (cars or whatever) moving will be blurred:
example:
<param name="movie" value="http://backend.deviantart.com/embed/view.swf" /><param name="flashvars" value="id=45762673&width=1337" /><param name="allowScriptAccess" value="always" /><embed src="http://backend.deviantart.com/embed/view.swf" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="450" flashvars="id=45762673&width=1337" height="334" allowscriptaccess="always"></embed></object><br /> <param name="movie" value="http://backend.deviantart.com/embed/view.swf" /><param name="flashvars" value="id=45763040&width=1337" /><param name="allowScriptAccess" value="always" /><embed src="http://backend.deviantart.com/embed/view.swf" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="450" flashvars="id=45763040&width=1337" height="355" allowscriptaccess="always"></embed></object><br />


Or you can track your moving subject with your camera, that's called panning.

Thanks for getting back to me. Do you have any specific advice how this works on the EP1 and how effective it is?

tobeornotobe, have you tried using these controls yet even if we're not talking about "the photo" but just some tests? And if so, what hasn't worked and can you see the data on the photos to understand what you might change in the way of shutter speed or aperture or both...or even ISO?
