Since I got my DSLR, this has been one of the funnest things to do -- especially since one doesn't have to worry about wasting film. Here's a few of the more successful ones.

PS, if you're not familiar with this 'technique' -- you zoom all the way in, shoot and zoom out while the shutter is closed.

All pics unedited w/ kit lens.

Ira,

the last one looks arty
the 3rd one is interesting too

here is one i tried a while back


other tricks to play with
with your camera on a tripod tilt the camera up or down as you zoom
hold the zoom ring firm and rotate the camera
as you zoom turn the focus too
it is limited only by your imagination

have fun

I tried the zoom trick a while back on a bus:

I really want to try it again, but in the city at night!!

Here's another trick I tried a while ago with my P&S
Mount the camera on a tripod in the portrait position.
Set the shutter for a few seconds and then move the camera to the landscape position while the shutter is still open.
You might need to do it a few times to get the timing right.

The old powerzoom lenses did this automatically with cameras that supported the powerzoom function. They called it Intelligent Power Zoom which would zoom on or out depending on how you set the lens.
