Cleaning up background by Panning

I was taking some photos of the band Farewell, My Love when I realized the background wasn’t really what I wanted.

I thought for a moment and decided that since the shutter speed was already slow just pan the shot to blur the background and use the flash to freeze the band.

In hindsight I would have changed one thing. I would have changed the flash from Slow Sync to Rear Sync. This would have sharpened the band and put the blur behind them.

I will just have to wait and try this again and try the Rear Sync flash.
