Racking the lens (day 18)

This technique has a lot in common with panning but instead of following the subject with the lens, the zoom is used to create the notion of motion. A long exposure time is used in combination with zooming the lens, this creates motion lines that points towards the middle of the photo creating an interesting effect.

I was out taken photos quite late today so there wasn’t much light and I therefore had to use a high ISO setting resulting in a lot of noise. To my eye the look of ISO noise is a lot more pleasant in black and white so that decided the look of today’s photos.
