  • Thanks for sharing the “how you did it part”. I’ve always wanted to try that with my nephews and wondered how. Of course, not having a wireless trigger for the 20D makes it difficult!

    Thanks for the comment! Here’s a couple of alterntative suggestions I thought of afterwards:
    – Self timer: the problem here is you only get one shot per spin, and it can be hard to get it in one. The camera does swing side-to side a bit on your chest.
    – Press it yourself: if the child is of an appropriate size, you could hold them around your waist with one arm, and shoot the camera with your free hand. This might put the child too close to the camera however.
    – Get some help: A trick I tried with some teenage friends. I got them to hold each other’s hands and spin around each other, while I reached around one of them with the camera in font and me spinning with them behind. Due to the rapid increase in speed with the increase in radius however, I had to move very fast to keep up, and since I wasn’t holding on to anything, it was tricky to keep up! I nearly knocked one poor girl out with my camera!

    So none of the solutions is really ideal, but it adds to the chaos of the resulting photo I think. You’ll hardly ever get a “perfect” shot, which is great :)

    Good luck if you try it yourself, let us know how you go!

  • Some great shots of what looked to be a fun time! I especially love the spinning shot with Rachel, that’s a definite winner…. and fantastically fun!

    Thanks for the comment Jerry! It was a great deal of fun, but more than a little tiring! :) I’m really happy with how the spinning shot came out, I want to practice it some more!
