was that done by twisting the zoom ring as you took the shot? neat trick that you can't do without a zoom ring on the lens... that's the one reason i wish myFZ20 had that feature...

Great effect!!, It is incredible what difference makes the manual zoom ring.

Welcome!!

Well, first you need a powerful, but short bungee cord. You stretch it out, with it attatched to a secure handle sewn into your backpack, with the aid of four burly friends, to the exact point you want your basic picture to register. Calculate the path backward where all stationary objects will appear unmoved. At the precise moment your friends release the human photographer (you) and the bungee cord hurtles you backward, you shoot a burst of shots as you fly backward. At the moment of regained consiousness, you check for 1: unusual pain, 2: unusual geometry in all limbs, 3: camera integrity. Having completed a successful post flight check, proceed to download. It's that simple. Oh, then change out of your batman suit and plan your next caper...:lol: Hey, nothing's ever easy...best regards, and ya, how did you do that?

Firts of all, excuse me for my bad english. I hope you can understand me.



Thanks to all. Squirl033, congratulations! You was right.



Well, I'm going to explain you exactly how I did it:

Camera: Panasonic Lumix FZ30

Tripod

Flash off

I put the camera on a tripod and measured the light of the church. It gave me a reading of 2 seconds at F8. Then I adjusted the camera in manual mode at F8, 2,5 seconds[/b]. Next I made the photo, counting out the seconds mentally; one, two, and then I moved the zoom forward for the last half second.

In the firsts two seconds, the photo was exposed correctly, and in the last half second, while the zoom moved around, only the great lights were exposed at the zoom path, giving this radial effect.

It's and old technique, of when the first zooms turned up.

This is one of my first posts here too, and I thought I would share a picture with a similar effect with my FZ30.
