    This was a pic I did of my alarm clock blinking. I used an apature F8, a shutter speed of 15 seconds. A ISO of 80.

    This is a pic I did Also with 15 second exp, a F8, and ISO 80. I I started the car off slow, and then stoped it, then creeped it along a little more to the final stop.

    In this shot I used only 2 stoping points so the car would stand in the pic better.
    Anyway check it out, and leme know what you guys think. I was pretty much playing around.

    creative. If you have an off camera flash try and take a long exposure and then step into the frame and flash yourself, ... multiple times :D

    Combining the technique above with a flash freezes one moment in time. The affect is called slow-syncing.

    Here's one I havn't been able to figure yet. I was playing around with the shutter speed to see the diiferent effects with incadescent lighting. I snapped this pic and my wife tryed to run by to avoid being in the pic. I think the shutter must have open twice without advancing the frame (maybe a malfunction). The camera is a d40x, the shutter was 1/1.6s @ f4.2. It seems to me that if the the shutter had been opened only once, she would have been blurred by her movement across the pic. Any suggestions as to what happened?

    If your wife is a ghost, then that's perfectly normal. :lol:

    If she's not, could the flash have gone off?

    Even if the flash had gone off, wouldn't there still be blurring? But now that I think about it, the flash did go off

    no problem. Im thinking about doing a shot with a lighter colderd car, and a darker background to see if it has a better effect.
