Zoom Experiment

Playing around with zoom during an exposure today. This is a lens cap on a small tupperware container on my desk. I focused while zoomed in, and then zoomed out while taking the shot.

Hand-held, so there's extra movement in there that wouldn't appear on a tripod, but interesting none the less.

    Definitely an interesting effect, I think I'm going to have to have another go with a tripod to see what I can come up with.

    I think it might even be in the Canon manual.

    Hmmm, not in my 400d manual Maz, but then it might be on the Canon site...

    It's a bit like that isn't it Maria ?

    Yeah, nifty things you can do with a zoom lens. I think you can also do that with the S3 / S2 David.
