Experimentally Zooming

Behold

Tried my hand at zooming on an image while taking the photo.

This does produce an interesting effect. Try it: while snapping the shutter, either zoom in or out on your subject. It is easier with a still subject; one would be able to use the tripod. However, surprising results can be achieved if the subject is moving. They key is to let in as little light as possible (use as low an ISO and Fstop as possible) combined with as slow a shutter speed you can tolerate to avoid too much image wobble.  Placing the subject in the center produced my most pleasing outcome. Focus on something and see what fun results you produce!
