Photographer's Note

When the weather brightens up around here I might move onto some new photos from this year. But I still have a few more Festival Light shots to share for now.

To see what I am shooting here you have to look at the workshop. Yes a row of toy soldiers. If you look past the zoom lines you can see them at 18mm.

How is it done?
Start with a one full stop under compensation, and 4.5 seconds exposure, use f13 to ensure all is in sharp focus, then press the shutter, hold for a second at 18mm then carefully zoom in to 55mm to create the stream lines for approx two seconds and then hold it there for the last second to create a start and a destination aspect in this frame.

Next time I do this I know what to look for to improve this kind of photo. And that is to carefully position the very center of the viewfinder so you can control the sweeping zoom lines to fill the frame in a balanced manner. At the left of the frame you can see the tail lights of a car that is passing through. I had to wait for all headlights to be outside of the frame. Either way I am happy with this frame. And I hope you like it too. See workshop for standard perspective. Thank you.
