Most of the time, we want to capture a sharp image and freeze action in time, by using a fast shutter speed. Most times, I get involuntary blurred effects due to camera shake, or the subject moving 😛 There are times when you will achieve very good results by deliberately setting a slower shutter speed, for beautiful effects such as the creamy flow of waterfall or trailing lights from passing vehicles. One of the interesting effects you can achieve in-camera is to rotate the camera while using a slow shutter speed.

This was done by setting my aperture to f/11, exposure at 1/10 and turning the entire camera while the shutter is depressed. Had to try a couple of times for the best effect.
