The trick to this is to have your SLR on auto focus, have the Av settings at what ever is appropriate for the lighting, and I found it works better if you have it fully zoomed in and then zoom out when you press the shutter. You can be zoomed out then zoom in but mine turned out better starting off zoomed in!


  1. These are so cool and what a great idea for motion! I heard someone talking about doing this but I've never seen the results before. Yours look great!

  2. I did a few of these shots, but didn't share them in my motion post. They make me so dizzy just looking at them. lol
    Thanks for joining Alicia and I for the Crazy Days of Summer Photo Challenge. I hope you'll join us again next week when we move on to our new theme, bubbles. Have a great weekend!

  3. they do make your eyes go funny, don't they???

  4. Very fun trick. Thanks so much for sharing how you achieved it! It makes for a visually interesting shot. And so glad you are participating in our motion theme this week for the Crazy Days of Summer Photo Challenge!
