Here is a shot the other night of some soda machines using the technique of zooming during exposure. This is basically straight from the camera. I know the florescent light at the top left really spoils the shot. Getting harder and harder to find these out in a dark area. Most people have lights around them to deter vandals I suppose. Will have to keep my eye out for some in a dark area.

Camera 5D, ISO100, Exposure 3.2sec., F-Stop 22, Lens 46mm to 24mm during exposure.

That's actually pretty cool. I thought it was a mix of two images at first. Was the middle soda machine unlit then?

Nice shot.

A monopod would make this shot easier.

1) Scout location

2) Look left and right

3) Break lights with Monopod

4) Shoot

5) Run!

I love the zoom-during-exposure technique. You can get some really fun results.

Yes the middle machine's light was non-operational (it is a Pepsi machine). Kind of glad that it was. It gave room for the side machine's to be visible throughout the zoom.

Fun results but it can be frustrating trying to get all the variables sorted out. Delay at the beginning to sufficiently expose the start. Be smooth with the zoom, and you can see that from the flourescent light that my 24-70 is a little sticky in it's movement. But that is OK, I like that the zoom stays where I put it. THen leave enough time after zoom to expose the finish semi-properly. On top of all that camera-to-subject orientation changes zoom patterns. Get all those sorted out and maybe two in a hundred are lookable at and if you are really lucky, or just plain good, Then maybe a keeper. Loads of fun! :)
