Stained Glass Window at Dore Abbey, the lens was zoomed during the 4 second exposure.
Sometimes called a zoom burst.

The camera was mounted on a sturdy tripod and taken up to the centre height of the window, the image was composed with the lens towards the 300mm end, the thinking behind the shot was to open the shutter, dwell for a 1 second, zoom for 1 second to a stop, then let the central image have a 2 second exposure, the zooming was done by hand, experimenting with times, this was shot on slide but shooting on digital you can preview straight away, should make it easier.

Camera:Pentax LX Check out PENTAXPORTAL!
Lens:75-300mm zoom.
Recording media:Fujichrome Velvia 50.
Title:Window-Dore Abbey.

Sort of like a double exposure--- does your camera zoom on command-- waht I mean is, I would have to move the lens by hand?

Outstanding piece of work. I know lots of people who have tried doing this in the past with no end result. I defy any camera club judge who is confounded with this piece of work in the future not to give it full marks. Beautifully done and top draw stuff - instantly gets an award from me. Love it and a real pleasure to view.

Dave.
PS. Donít sit on this shot Fred - needs moving around.
