Editor’s Note: Welcome to new Photofocus contributor Mark Morrow — http://www.markmorrowphotography.com.

Outdoor events can be challenging to capture in a way that is meaningful, or that equals the experience from a competitor’s perspective.  Aside from the well-deserved physical rewards, event sports like mountain bike racing and endurance running (etc) can be thankless work for the athlete and they tend to value those images that best represent their effort and experience.

Nothing conveys speed like a well-placed blur.  Today we’ll explore the use of pan and zoom shooting techniques to enhance motion and add interest to moving subjects.

If you have any questions, feel free to drop me a note on Twitter.
