    Well, he says that's how he did it, but I think we all know he farted while focusing, then covered up the incident by pretending he'd done it deliberately, using some supposed artsy technique called "shaking the camera." I'll bet you shook the camera, after three cans of beans.

    If I wanted to be fancy, I'd call it ICM, short for intentional camera movement, as that's how the technique is known.

    But yes, Tyrion revealed my secret technique.

    It's not exactly a secret technique, although I had never read anything about it before just now - I didn't even know what it was called.. zoom burst, apparently. It's a nice trick, but it's hard to do anything interesting with it. Here's an earlier example of the technique.

    Nice. That first zoom burst shot of the tree branches really grabbed me. Reminds me of some old black and white film of various bands of the period running through woods and parks set against their music. Sort of pre-music video.

    That last zoom burst reminds me of a kaleidoscope for some reason.

    That zoom-burst tutorial shows very well how a good camera can be used to maximum effect.

    Damn, son, you live in a psychedelic universe. Where do they put the lysergic acid, in the drinking water? Or does it wash up naturally in the surf?

    That "moonglow" look from behind the camera, especially on the liner, but also on the other boats and even more so on the pier, give this picture a special shine. Wonderful.

    It was unusually busy that day with boats, lucky shot.
