Taking a break from finals preparation and thought I would share a picture that I took this weekend. I had recently read about using a long exposure time and zooming into/away from your subject while the shutter is still open. So while at my friend Matt's, I decided to give this technique a try.
I was really surprised how well the results turned out, especially since I was trying this without a tripod to help keep it steady. The specs for this are 1/4 sec, ISO 800, 22mm, and f/ 5.6
