To apply this technique in your photographs, you need a zoom that lets you vary the focal length, it is advisable to have a tripod. Although, as you can see in the photo, in that case has not been made ​​use of it, but I lost the focus, I mean, get focus in the hass and not in the bull.

Yes, here is one from a couple of months ago (Nex 5 and 55-210 on a tripod)

I've tried this before, albeit not with the NEX. I've seen people doing variations of the technique where they rotate the camera body, rather than the zoom ring of the lens. You can do interesting things by rotating yourself too, such as shooting upward whilst sat on a roundabout or swivel chair. Here's a zoom blast ( as I call it ) from back in my Canon days :-

Cool Freddy.



Can you explain what you did a little more?
is easy, just choose the low exposure time, I did this without a tripod and 6sec , with the kit 18-55mm at ISO 1600, but I just was testing, did not go so well, but with constant practice can improve this technique.

The zooming is a simple technique to add an effect of speed and dynamism produced by the converging lines created by the change in focal length during shooting, focusing the viewer's attention on the center of the shot.

For that we need to use a tripod, since we use a fairly low shutter and prevent camera shake and the focus of our picture. When shooting, we must change the focal length (zoom) of the lens while the shutter is open (I mean between the first and the second "click").
