I just finished experimenting with my camera. I discovered what can happen when I slow down the shutter speed and zoom in/zoom out while the picture is being exposed. It’s so much fun!
Here is what I started with – meet my funky snowman made by the artist daughter of the doctor I work for – isn’t he cute? I love his black eye. He got into some trouble. This picture was taken under manual settings of which I forget. A big aperture, somewhat high ISO (it’s nighttime inside), slowish shutter speed.
Now, look what happens when I slow the shutter speed waaay down (like 10 seconds) and zoom in slowly. I decreased the ISO and aperture with this shot since so much light is able to get through and with each of the following, I tried to focus my focus point on his black eye (I could have done a better job had I found my tripod I think):
(aw, look at his cute little face within his face!)
I think the shutter speed is 4 seconds in this one:
This is what it looks like when I pan out:
Oh my gosh, what else can I do? Anybody got any cool tricks to share?
