Forgot that bit, its 3 exposures and I rotated the aperture and changed the shutter speed in each.
Aha, thanks for the clarification. It would be unlike you to use just a single trick

I'm not sure if this counts as it wasn't exactly deliberate - more a case of planting the tripod on marshy ground, but I kind of like the result
I have something similar - several of them - from when I forget that I have used the 2 second timer and take down the camera to see what's wrong

Or here, where I grossly miscalculated the available light and ended up with a 5 second exposure and thought the camera had locked up. I must have held it fairly steady for the first couple of seconds, though

A very happy accident I would say, I like these kind of painting like representations of scenes.

Really enjoying this thread and some amazing images from very imaginative photographers. Here are some of my efforts, using home-made lens filters and reversing glass.

Helios 44-2 and filter; showing how the lens distorts and rotates light to produce swirls



...and another Helios 44-2, changing directions.



Reversing the front element of an Auto-Takumar 35/2.3. This is a really stupid thing to do to an old classic but I couldn't resist



...and another Helios 44-2, with its front element reversed. I especially like the effects bottom left on this one. Most importantly (in terms of pixie dust) the image got me an invite to the "invitation only" Fairies World group on Flickr....!

Heres a couple different tricks.

We all know sunstars.


This one is a little different. I took a picture of my face and printed it and stuck it behind a glass and took that to put my head in the cup. Not done with PP.

Not that I've noticed, but I haven't looked. It was the asking of a question like that about unusual techniques that spurred me to launch this thread.
Well, I done gone and done it

Works for me. Doesn't have to be deliberate; happy accidents are more than welcome!

Oh, and since this is a thread for stupid tricks, how about over-exposing? Not exactly a trick, at least not in this example since it happened by accident... But it should fulfil the stupidity part just fine Probably 4-5 stops over...

K-1 & K24/2.8
I like it!

Accidental slow shutter speed...

I’ve been determined to put my least used lenses into the “I’m uninspired today” rotation. So I put my 06 tele-zoom on a Q7 and just stepped onto my front porch when I saw a neighbor walking her herd of little dogs across the street. I brought the Q up and grabbed this shot before I checked the settings. 1/6 second at whatever. Might work better in monochrome if it works at all.

DEER! My wife is yelling while I turn and shoot with my EM1 and 12-32 lens frantically as it and a companion rush by. The camera was setup for landscapes so....

Cropped heavily - but I like the blur in the background and I'm going with, "I meant to do that..."

Classic / cliche "zoom during exposure"

*ist DS, 18-55, 1/6 @ f/13. Somewhere around 31mm according to the EXIF, though it was of course varying.
