Panning is a photographic technique that provides great separation of subject from background.

The technique is very simple in theory, but takes some practice to perfect.

Here is how it works, you set your camera to a relatively low shutter speed.  Say 1/80 or 1/40 of a second. Next you find a subject that is moving from one side of the frame to the other. Here comes the tricky part. While keeping the subject in a fixed part of the frame (and you do that by panning the lens from side to side) click the shutter.

I spent my summer at Camp L’man Achai. L’man Achai is a camp made for non-religious Jewish kids, it’s mission is to give kids some knowledge about Judaism during their stay. For the first Month of Camp I was the Photographer (among other things).  For the month of August though I was a Counselor.

Here are some of the photos I took (more to come):

Lawn and Mountain View

Yep, you heard me. Under the freeway. You know, where all the ivy grows and black soot collects. Where random Taco Bell trash exists, and you wonder how it got there–then start to think about it–then shudder at your thoughts. Yep, that’s where we went. Ideal photo shoot location for a family with two boys under six? You wouldn’t think, but we went for it anyway! ;)

In the NY POST

Posted in Other Pictures with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 9, 2008 by Rafi Greenstein

So today my photo was printed in the New York Post without my permission, I originally took the photo for and for only, the editor of that website decided to just give away or sell (NY Post won’t tell me if they sold it for money) the shot.

The New York Post gave me no credit for the shot not in print or online, the online article has no photo credit.

Now before you say that I should go to editor and tell him to pay me, I tried. Either way legally the New York Post is liable because they are the publishers.


It should be noted that after contacting the NYP they apologized and agreed pay for the usage, thank you. Since then has  sold another one of my photos to another newspaper, I stopped working for them.
