Be careful concerning the aspects that you feature in your photos. Go ahead and take out anything from the picture that doesn’t belong there or makes the frame seem out of balance. Use panning shots that keep your subject in concentration and if need be blur the background, if you can’t get rid of all undesirable distractions from your shot.

Panning: Use a slow shutter speed (start with 1/30), set up parallel to the path of the subject, track the subject smoothly with the camera, once you've released the shutter (do it as gently as possible) continue to pan the subject even after the shot is complete.
Panning means using a slow shutter speed and swinging the camera to follow the motion of a moving object. Because the camera swings at the same speed as the moving object, the moving object appears sharp in the photo. The background, however, is still so the swinging motion of the lens makes it appear blurry. If you are new to panning, read my 6 tips for better panning photography.
