Long exposure photography! The longer the exposure on the photo, the longer the trail, but the blurrier you become!

If a quizz is quizzical, what is a test?

If you look at some of the pro's galleries, they get really long trails but with no blurring. It's all about making really neat patterns.

P.S. I can't do it - no way

Buy gerbils cos you can't spin with hamsters

Long trails with no blurring is done with a flash. To make the things that are not lit clear (like the person) but then leaving the shutter open for a long exposure on the lit objects.

Well, shall we go?
Yes, let's go.

Also, you can use multiple flashes to get a set of movements - each flash will capture the spinner's position at that moment to film. Most effective if the spinner moves across the shot.
