It sounds like a non panning shot you are describing, the only way the background would have come out clear at 1/30th of a second is if the camera was very still. You have the settings right, 1/500 will freeze pretty much everything in the scene-did you upload the images? If so I can take a look at them and let you know what I see-thanks

My panning shots did not come out like they were supposed to. My subject is blurry and background is clear. My setting according to my computer was f/22 1/30, should it have been 1/500th to get the subject clear and background blurry. And to get the blurry effect on a portrait shot I understand the Aperture should be low. What should the lens feet setting be set on?

What a great class yesterday. Just what I needed to finally figure out how to really start to use my camera. I must say it was kind of embarrassing when people would ask me about the settings I used in a shot and I couldn't tell them. LOL Well, now I can! Can't wait to take another class. I just have to decide which one. Thanks guys!!

I just purchased the Canon T3i with an 18-55mm and a 75-300mm lens. I am new to the more professional world of photography and am by no means proficient with a DSLR. Would the intro to photography class be a good place for me to start or would you recommend something else?
