A photography friend of mine went to the annual Hong Kong Flower Show and took tons of photos which are, pardon me, humdrum. The photos are primarily mugshots of flowers after flowers in different angles with a blurred background, much the same as those taken by the Chief Executive of the Hong Kong Government. Such usual shots of flowers are good in their own right. But we have seen too many of the same, haven’t we?
Photographers can pan their cameras even when they take pictures of still plants, yes.
Just remember that the shutter should be dragged to a slower speed like 1/4s in the following photos, depending on the exposure conditions. Then be sure that you don’t pan the camera too much, but by just enough like half an inch.
Another trick is that if you make a pan shot of trees, the photo may look more intriguing, or "Van Goghish" with the tree trucks included in it.
