    effect is the same, only the scenery and lighting conditions are different.

    I can, can't you?

    Read my 2nd point again and digest accordingly, unless you want my super big silver-ladle then just say so.

    Practice make perfect .

    there's a section (IIRC) in bryan peterson's book "Learning to see creatively" dat talks abt zoom effects. from wat i remember, it helps if u have very strong backlight on ur subject.

    try the library, and see if u can pick up a copy?

    My bad suggest you to handheld. I try handheld and I give up .

    It should be put on sturdy tripod, put anything you want it sharp on the center, and press shutter while zoom in/out.

    This is what I try outdoor, looks not as good as Mickey:

    It could be because the Mickey's background is bright. You can try similar situation. IMHO, your zoom lens also may affect the photo, since not all zoom lens is linear zoom. Like my nikkor 18-70mm, it is linear only from 50-70mm or 18-50mm.

    DSLR make it easier. I remember last time I try that on film SLR .

    Arto.
