I originally put this thread in the wrong place I think. I was reading and article in the January 2008 PCPhoto Magazine (by Bruce Dale). The title was "The Art Of Flash" on page 34 so I thought I'd try.

My girlfriend and I went out for dinner last night and I recalled the article so I tried with her point and shoot (Olypus Stylus 790 SW). Next I went to the car and got my Nikon. I was amazed at how easy this technique was and how well the cameras (both) kept focus on the subject.

Here's the one from my Nikon:

Here's the one from Tracey's Olympus:

Good fun. Try it out. I'd love to see others.

I find there's a subtlety to dragging the shutter. The first photo would be great if it didn't have those two ugly bright spots streaking across the subject's forehead.

One of my older ones, the effect is considerably softer:

That one is awesome! Yea I could quite get the right speed on my twist. I was going for something along the lines of what Dale had but then again I was going after one of the greats I guess. ;-)
