    My first zoom shots. Doubly inspired by JonMikal and Triggerhappy. I took around 130 zoom shots last night, and I'm officially addicted!

    Yeah, just set it for a long exposure (1-3 seconds or so) and zoom. You have to have a sturdy tripod for the light trails to be perfectly straight. It's fun stuff...just do it in moderation :D

    It's fun techniques like this that can be easily recreated by a beginner with the press of a button in a photo program. Which is fine, but not really...
