    Default how to get this effect?

    hi there!!!
    just to check, does anybody know what effect is this, as shown in the picture?


    There are streaks of light in the photo. How do you get this effect?
    p.s i'm using the fujifilm s2000hd camera.

    Thanks thanks!!!(:

    I see two possible ways...

    1) Take a photo of a girl's back with flash, then add all the orangy swirls in post.

    2) Take a flash stop-motion shot with a looong shutter like 3-5 seconds and move the camera around and around with lens pointed at dull, old orangy street lamp to get swirls.

    Hope this helps.

    my guess is rear-curtain synch..the flash fires after a long shutter that's why the lady is not blurred

    my guess #2 because if you look carefully there are light double yellow line on top that look similar and there are more in different orientation. The lady also have a dark shadow/ border at the left.

    But creating this picture there are another method which i use, which is a thin scarf with design, place it infront of your lens and play with the aperture you can create nice creative design.

    I believe you need to swirl your camera around before the flash as well.

    i believe that the flash fired first, followed by the long shutter.

    the random lines of light goes OVER the subject, which might most probably mean that the subject was exposed first.

    i might be wrong. its just a guess.
