Zooming during exposure: which is the innie and which is the outie?

In my previous post, I made a photo of a TV image and zoomed the lens during the exposure. In the comments, there was a question whether it would make a difference zooming in or out. So I did the experiment. Here are two images of a macaw on a TV photographed while zooming the lens during exposure. For one of the images, the lens was zoomed out. For the other, the lens was zoomed in. If examined closely, you can see a small difference between the images. I think this is due to a slight difference in how fast I turned the zoom ring on the lens for each image and not because the lens was zoomed in for one image and zoomed out for the other. What do think?

Toms Skujins is definitely jubilant having made a brilliant breakaway ride capped with winning an uphill sprint after 135 miles and 13,000 feet of mountain climbing!

I have it for the authors who have left us with and continue to give us an incredible bounty of literature, poetry, history, philosophy, science, art, and more. The list is endless.

I have it, too, for the objects themselves in all their myriad forms. Hardbacks, paperbacks, pamphlets, magazines, newspapers, art books, text books, plain covers, colorful covers, large editions, small editions…even the electronic counterparts.

And, today being Independent Bookstore Day (at least in the US but perhaps this can be global one day), I admire those brick-and-mortar bookstores that have learned how to coexist with the Internet onslaught and thrive still.
