spinning kid... always

    Newer Older

    papa, je veux faire l'avion!!!! and it always ends like that... look at his face, he really enjoys now!!! :D

    how I did it? fairly simple if you're big enough not to collapse. Take a friend on your back, with his arms around your neck, holding the kid. You get up, lifting everyone... and then, the funny part... you start spinning and, with your 2 free hands, you shoot!!!

    more pieces of advice, in case your back is weak: use the time program, set it between 1/30 - 1/50 of a second, place yourself in the shade of a tree (not too close!!!! poor little and shortened guy!) to avoid over exposure. you can use the rapid capture mode.

    If you feel like trying this, please let me know the outcome! - thanks!

      I'm trying hard to get my own shot like this. I'll let you know if I ever get it! The model is 3 and the assistant photographer attached to my back is 5 years old. That is our work flow by now...
