As I’ve mentioned before, I’m working my way through the Practical Photography’s DSLR Skills Bootcamp. This month is about creative metering and exposure, and the assignment is to take a long exposure shot of a moving car, but panning it so the car is sharp and the background is blurred.

So I spent lunchtime today shivering in the wind and the rain beside one of the arterial roads into Harrogate honing my skills.

I’m only allowed to choose one as my submission for the bootcamp, and I’m only allowed one for the 365… but I had so much fun I’m going to put all the better shots on here.

I particularly like the bin lorry – I didn’t notice the driver was waving until afterwards!
