01 Switch to M Switch to Man­ual mode us­ing your Nikon’s main dial and se­lect as low an ISO as pos­si­ble. Pick a nar­row aper­ture, such as f/22, so that you can shoot with the slow shut­ter speed you need – any­thing from 1/8 to 1/2 sec gives you enough time to zoom your lens out com­pletely. 02 Try a burst Com­pose your shot care­fully – the cen­tre will be the sharpest point of the fi­nal photo. Hold­ing your cam­era steady, start zoom­ing out slowly, press the shut­ter but­ton, and keep zoom­ing un­til the shut­ter closes again. 03 Get ex­per­i­ment­ing Once you’re get­ting the look right, you can start to ex­per­i­ment with dif­fer­ent sub­jects. Even ev­ery­day ob­jects can look great when you ap­ply a zoom burst. Try us­ing it when shoot­ing sports, ur­ban scenes or even por­trai­ture for in­trigu­ingly dif­fer­ent re­sults.
