The technique used in the 2nd and 3rd pictures is not hard to figure out, zooming while holding the shutter open. The first shot I think was a bit more creative. If I had to guess, you left the flash turned off while you moved the camera around with the shutter. Then at the last, you manually fired the flash. This might also be accomplished using rear-curtain sync with a slow shutter.

I definitely like the first shot the best.

Hi Guys,

OK first shot... as Cal correctly spotted, using second curtain flash, and camera on a tripod but panning the head around a little to get the effect then at the end of the exposure the flash fires. Was a 4 second on Tv priority.

Second was as Cal rightly pointed out again... (!!!) a zooming effect with the second curtain enabled also.

The third one started life like the second oneonly did a little photoshopping... se how herehttp://www.stevesforums.com/forums/v...mp;forum_id=90

Thanks guys, my second entry into the weekly photo challenge ... just as a pointer, the link from Cal at the top of each other forums would maybe be better if it had the challenge in it? I myself usually only frequent the critiques one (as I am a sucker for punishment!! :roll

Dom,

I agree with the prevailing opinion that the first shot is the best. The techniques you employed will work primarily for those with DSLRs or high end prosumer digital rigs. I have tried it with cameras with electro-mechanical zooms and have not been successful in part because of the time lag required to start the zoom motion after snapping the shot. I am not even sure that both actions can be executed at the same time on some cameras.

Nonetheless the effect is stunning. One of my visual thoughts was that the first shot looked like you had released a herd of fireflies. Cheers.

Aloha
