Posted:depending on the speed of spin, you need to extend shutter speed. use your camera's programs or set it to manual. set

shutter at least to 1/30s - the longer, the more trails

aperture use 2,8 only if distance to subject is static horizontally - the higher the number the greater depth of field

try using a flash too (camera on manual) and if you have an SLR, try "second curtain sync"

try making a shot and panning your camera at the same time - not too much, just a little....

Enjoy the results - yay for digital photography ; )))

Posted:and if you are going to have the shutter speed open you probably would like to have a tripod or a place to set down the camera so there is no "shake"

Nay, whatever comes one hour was sunlit and the most high gods may not make boast of any better thing than to have watched that hour as it passed
