    I was scouting for some fall pictures when I decided to try something a little different. To get this effect, I used my 17 - 40 zoom lens, mounted the camera on a tripod, choose a long exposure(1.3 sec) and a small f stop (22). I then rotated the zoom when the shutter was open. It was my first try at this technique. I plan to experiment with different exposures but in the meantime, I thought that this one came out OK.

    Thanks for looking.

      Nice! I've read about zooming the lens while taking a shot, but haven't tried it yet. You've inspired me TFS!

              Loved this - you inspired me to try and have a go myself, quite pleased with it.

                    Very cool. Seen these types of shots before but never tried it until I read your post. However I tried my shot indoors-of my cat lol came out similar but not as dynamic as this one. Nice job!

                      Very nice. Did you zoom in the entire focal length on this shot?

                        And random question: What does the EXIF data look like when you do this? Does it record the focal length at the beginning or end of the exposure? just curious if anybody knew

                          The exif data records the focal length at the beginning of the shot. In this case, that was 22mm. Unfortunately, the end point of the zoom is not recorded but I think that it was close to the 40 mm end point of my lens. When I use this technique, I try a number of different zoom intervals and pick the one that comes out the best.

                          Thanks to everyone for your kind comments.
