My friend Jairus is a good sport. He always lets me practice my experimental photo techniques on him and since he’s an actor, he knows how to “ham it up” for the lens. Here I was trying to use the zoom capability in the middle shooting a portrait. I would set up the shot, make sure I had a decently long exposure, and twist the barrel of the lens as I took the shot to create the sense of movement. I also tried pivoting the camera around in a circle on the center axis of the lens to get a spiral effect. Both were fun. I hope to apply these techniques to portraits in the future.
