Fair and square

NPhoto - - Mini Feature -

Fair­ground lights make an ideal sub­ject for a zoom burst. All you have to do for this is use a tri­pod, set a long ex­po­sure time of around a sec­ond, then smoothly turn the bar­rel of your zoom lens dur­ing the ex­po­sure. To take it fur­ther, you could try flip­ping half the im­age in Pho­to­shop to cre­ate sym­met­ri­cal art like this square-shaped ab­stract. Se­lect the area you want with the rec­tan­gu­lar Mar­quee tool, hit Cmd/Ctrl+J to copy it to a new layer, then hit Cmd/Ctrl+T. Drag the cen­tral con­trol point to one side of your se­lec­tion, then right-click and se­lect Flip Hor­i­zon­tal.
