Graduation by imladris517 Graduation by imladris517
Photo of a friend walking across the stage shortly after being capped at a University of Auckland graduation ceremony in New Zealand.
The shot was taken by panning the camera to try and match his speed which produced the motion blur in the background. The background colours come from the different academic regalia worn by the lecturers who were seated on the stage.

Yup, it was quite dark in the theatre so it took a bit of playing around to get the shot, but it seemed to come out well in the end (had quite a bit of practice on the graduates that walked across the stage before taking this shot : )

The blur came from panning the camera and trying to match the speed of my friend while he was walking across the stage - I had quite a few graduates to practice on for getting the settings right before taking this shot : )
