    My head is spinning...



    1) Photoshop

    2) As you press the shutter, zoom out/in accordingly.

    Could be PS.

    If you have zoom lens, you can try set slower shutter speed (ie.: 1/8s), set aperture accordingly to correct exposure. Put camera on tripod (or handheld if you can). Zoom to tele. Focus to subject. Press Shutter release and quickly zoom to wide.

    Practice make perfect!

    Thank you, it's trial and error shoot, around 10 photos take only the sharpest one .

    D70s with 18-70mm, M mode, shutter speed is 1/2s, aperture f/6.3 (according to light meter), ASA200. Use tripod. Zoom from 70mm to 50mm (slowly, since it is 1/2s).

    Practice make perfect .

    Regards,
    Arto.
