Keizer Ice Skating Race, Amsterdam

posted on 14th of february, 2012

Last weekend on Saturday Night 11 February 2012, for the first time in 15 years the Keizer Ice Skating Race took place across the frozen Keizersgracht canal in Amsterdam.

To photograph the skaters I used the panning technique. For those who don't know the panning technique, it is a technique to pan your camera along in time with the moving subject. It is a great way of giving the shot a feeling of movement and speed.

Below you can see two examples of my experiments with the 'panning' technique.
