A number of years ago I took a photo of this Las Vegas Welcome sign while zooming my lens. I probably wasn’t the first to do that, and I’m sure I won’t be the last, but it ended up being a fairly popular photo. This trip I wanted to do something different with the sign.
So I decided it might be kind of neat to rotate or spin the camera while taking the picture of the Las Vegas sign. I tried a bunch of different shutter speeds, but I wasn’t wild with the results. So then I tried a combination of zoom and spin, that is what you see here. Usually when I try do something different it doesn’t work – I’m constantly being reminded that unique doesn’t equal good, so my experiments usually end up in the delete bin. This time I think the results were kinda cool – I think I will keep this one.
