Example of turning camera while taking a shot

Photography course, London, May 2009. Taken by turning the camera through 90 degree's clockwise, while the shutter is open. Hand held. Settings - Manual Exposure, 1/20th second, f11.0, ISO 100, focal length 23.0 mm.

Example of turning the zoom while taking a shot

Photography course, London, May 2009. Taken by turning the zoom quickly while the shutter is open. Cannot remember if it was zooming out or in. I think it was out. Hand held. Settings - Manual Exposure, 1/20th second, f14.0, ISO 100.

Some moon shots I took in late October 2009. The camera is tri-pod mounted and the zoom was set to 271 mm in both photos. The camera has an image conversion factor of 1.6, so that makes the zoom 434 mm. I have used Photoshop to zoom in to the photos and refine some of the detail.

Farnborough Air Show - July 2010↑ Top

Arrived at the show late, so did not get any photos of the Red Arrows, as they were performing as I arrived. As one would expect, it was a spectacular performance. Also, still learning my photography, so a lot of my pictures did not come out that well. Photographing high speed moving objects is not that easy.
