What do you mean? Like a true panoramic shot, panning across a still image or panning a video shot? :blink:

Yes, panning across a still image. Like you have a blurry background and a sharp object.

That's actually kinda tricky - to make your background out of focus keeping your foreground in focus - easiest way would be to select the subject that you want to remain in focus with a lasso tool (or something similar), then apply a blur filter to the rest of the image. This may need to be done in stages, making multiple selections so that you gradually go out of focus (or blur) more as you get further away from your subject.

Also, some programs have a blur tool that will save time and headaches.

How far away is the still object? If it's close enough, you could use a close-up lens which would make the background, or most of it, blurry by default.

Also, you can use what's called "selective focus". Manually focus on the nearer image and the background will blur. Lens choice has an effect too.

Silly me...I was thinking of an image on a computer rather than one not yet taken with a camera! OB has it....use the lens and settings on the camera to get the desired effect. Adjust your F-stop and shutter speed to different settings (play with them) and that will help to alter your depth of field which will create the effect manually.

@Orange Blossom: it's like 7-10 Meters, and the object is moving.

If the object is moving, then simply "follow" it with your camera. Doing this will keep it in focus and sharp, while blurring whatever isn't moving as fast as the subject. Good advice is to get things framed, then snap a photo following the subject, then once the photo is has finished taking (ie. you hear the shutters snap), then continue to follow the subject for a second afterwards. This will ensure that you don't move the camera to soon (specially when using a slower shutter speed).

As for adding an image to the post, follow this link HERE.
