Everything is still but the lights are all over the place.
Something to do with changing the apeture settings i.e.the speed the shutter closes at, or the amount of light let in through the lens I cant remember which.
You need a camera with the ability to change these settings though. Have a look through google for different photo taking techniques.
a digital SLR?..
I would say a long-exposure time, but none of the people are blured due to them moving
it could be a mashup. One fast snap to capture people and then a long exposure to cause the light traces
Reducing the shutter speed and raising the light sensitivity.
What you could do is put the shutter speed at 18 seconds and at night draw with light from a flashlight, it's pretty fun and it doesn't take much time to do it.
My camera does that...
It appears that a good camera is key, anyone care to recommend me any? Say in the region of £50-£80, nothing flash, but takes real nice pictures in all conditions. 8MP+ would be very tidy.
Ive got... sony dsc t700
My BF bought it for me... so i have no idea how much it costs.
Kodak cameras are pretty cheap and real good, I got the dx6490
if you want to do that
you need a camera with a zoom you can move manually usually
( ive got a digi slr canon 40d)
if you move the zoom in and out as you press to take the photo
you usually get that
also if you open up the aperture settings on your camera to a longer exposure
and move about when you take your photo, you get that effect.
The lady has spoken. Bow down to her beak.
usually just wave your camera about, and try and get it stillish when you it's about to take, something similar comes out i think.
Im pretty sure its over exposure.
I used a Nikon D80 on manual setting:
Shutter speed on 2, flash comp -2, ev exposure + 2, apature 5.6 ISO 600-800.
Make sure there is a flash to take the picture of the person and then a slow shutter/slightly long expsoure to capture the lights in the photo. Not too long though. Just have a mess around in your room with a lamp somewhere, and your decks and mixer on. Just keep changing settings and you'll eventually get it.
Here's my photo of DJ Friction.
Its delayed light exposure. Its caused by the shutter taking its time to close after you press the button, which means that the movement is captured. You can do it on most cameras by adjusting the shutter speed, the slower the speed, the more movement is captured.
