Rooftops…

.. is the theme for this week’s #FriFotos on Twitter. How about a shot taken from a rooftop?

This was the first time I tried a pan-zoom technique I saw somewhere on a site I forgot to bookmark. Or is it zoom-pan? Kind of nifty either way, no?

To get the zoom ‘movement’ to work, you obviously have to use a slow shutter speed. This is at 1/13 and was quite difficult to pull off hand-held. The photographer whose work I saw suggested using a monopod. Very wise suggestion.

Anyone every tried this?

And Hey! Please join me on Twitter.
