Aside from photography, one of my favourite pastimes is riding my bike...
So why not combine the two?!

Joanne Hi Stephen - can you please explain to me how you took this shot... I'm very interested :-)
Stephen Cameron Hi Joanne,
This was a fairly easy shot to take - I first set quite a slow shutter speed on the camera (to get the motion blur). Then I rode my bike with one hand while holding onto the camera and with the other. It probably wasn't the smartest thing to do but I wasn't riding very fast.

A similar technique is often used to take photos for car ads where the car is driving fast. The difference is that the camera is attached to an arm off the side of the car. It's something I want to try one day :-)
