I recently learned a new photo technique from one of our guests so I have been fooling around with it fairly extensively for the past couple of weeks. This is one of the things that I love about digital photography. I have tried it out on a few different subjects, one of them being little rock carins built on the bank of the ganges.
This technique is selecting a central focus point, then a low shutter speed, like 1/5- 1/8 of a second. A stand is a good idea for steady shooting or very steady hands. As you take the shot zoom in on the subject and voila you get a pretty neat effect.
