Get pushed challenge 156 - zoom blur

I challenged my get pushed partner to show me a picture of zoom blur, Tari asked me if I was happy to do the same challenge and as I had not used this technique before I was pleased to do it too. I had to do some reading about it and this was the best link I found - explains the need to set a really high aperture and long shutter speed [ http://digital-photography-school.com/how-to-take-photos-with-the-zoom-blur-effect-includes-printable-cheat-sheet/ ] I put my camera on a tripod and zoomed in on a few things around my garden. I zoomed the lens from in to out and out to in. Sometimes I did this quickly sometimes a little slower, it was interesting to see the difference this made to the pictures. I am not sure whether I actually like the effect or not if I am honest, all I can say is that it's different. I am glad I got to do it anyway.
@sitiodown Hey Tari, did you try it yet? Here are a few pics I took. Thanks for the push.

those are cool! I'm still trying to figure out how to zoom and shoot simultaneously on my camera ~ it doesn't seem to want to let me do it ~ I'm going to look at my manual

@sitiodown Tari Oh that's a shame, I wonder why...?
