THE STORY BEHIND THE PHOTOS

Watch my YouTube video about these photos.

I wanted to try something fun and different while shooting the Fall Foliage. The are called "Zoom Trails" because what I did was place the camera in a tripod for stability and aim it towards the beautiful golden leaves, set it to relatively long exposure (1/2 to 1 second) and then while the camera was recording the image, manually turn the zoom ring on the lens to zoom in on the image. The results are these pictures. They remind of the scene late in "2001 A Space Odyssey" when Dave is jumping ahead through time...
