Weekly Photo Challenge: Unusual

This week we were invited to share an unusual photo, be it through technique, subject, etc.  I’ve been wanting to try this zooming technique ever since I saw it displayed using daisies as the subject by an Instagram friend.  The idea is simple:  bump your aperture to around f/16, drop your shutter speed to around 20-30 and let ISO land where it needs to be for a well-exposed frame.  Using a zoom lens (I used my 16-35mm), focus on an object, steady yourself and zoom in and out quickly while holding the shutter down (using continuous mode).  Voila!  Unusual…and beautiful!
