First of all i should thank you for all your good lessons it helped me lot.
I use Nikon D90 camera,
Is it possible to create the fanning effect with 50mm fast lens, Should i give it try with my Kit lens Nikkor 18-105mm.
And can you elaborate more how to freeze the motion, with good focus on the subject.

Yes i mean the panning effect, Can we create this panning effect with 50 mm fast lens or 55 to 105 nikkor lens.
And how do i create a freezing action in low light condition, with above lenses.
I have taken some good freezing motion pictures in day time, But how about after sunset.
Or i will have to buy an expansive lens like 24-70mm f /2.8, Only good lens like that can create that kind of effect, of panning in low light.

Cos after watching all your videos on you-tube i did some practice and told my friends that i have learned some new tricks . ( it was just after sun set time ) But when i took pictures for almost two hours , and i failed, not a single picture of mine was good. I use Nikon D90 camera and i don’t have any external flash.
cos most of them were low exposure and when i increase the ISO there was too much of noise.
Please help…..

The only ways to freeze an action at night is to use flash or high ISO, which lets you to use fast enough shutter speed to freeze the action. The lenses with wider apertures will let you to use lower ISO. 50mm for example goes to F1.8 or F1.4. But depending on what you are taking pictures of, you do not always want to use the widest aperture, because of very shallow DoF.

For panning your shatter speed could be around 1/30 – 1/125, depending how fast your subject is moving and how far you are from it. When you will have to adjust all your other setting accordingly to get a good exposure. Sometime during the day ND filter can be useful to cut down the light and get a good exposure with required shutter speed.

Oksana Thank you very much for your valuable advice, I will try use these stetting and get good panning effect. ( And post some of the pics) I dont know much about the ND filter or any other filter. If possible can you do a lesson on it . So it will be very helpful to many others as well.
