And the result, not exactly the same, as the result was in portrait position but still resting on the ice. The Ice was about an Inch thick so was not concerned... much. :P

Pre focused for the distance I wanted then turned from AF to MF so the focus would remain. It was kinda fun not knowing how exactly it turned out.

Well, this is kind of embarassing, but since the photo landed on Flickr explore and has become popular on reddit today, I have a lot of people asking how I took this shot:

And here's the eloquent setup...

IMAGE: https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-lmuEUed3_OA/TgNwZ5kW_TI/AAAAAAAACCU/zKLLGfgwe-E/s640/IMG_4472.jpg

I tried to pre-focus at the right distance, but obviously I was too close by about 6-8 inches. Then I set it on a 10-second timer and started spinning. I almost trashed the photo since I wasn't happy with it, but apparently people like it.

I think it is great as well! With your hands in focus, the shot is about the connection between you two rather than just some girl getting spun around. While that can be a strong image. The connection is far more universally understood.

Scott, a quick question: Why did you extend the center column instead of the legs and leaving the center column down? I was at a course to learn low-light/night shooting techniques, and the instructor said I should never extend the center column. I would assume that would apply for any long exposure shot. Your result was excellent and I was just curious about your experience with extending the center column.

This shot gave me flash backs to early 1970's. I was stationed in Fairbanks, Alaska and I was playing just this way with my daughter and I dislocated her elbow. So whenever I see this type of play it sends a shiver up my spine.

Hahahaha too funny, I would of never thought of that, you get an A++++++ for creativity my friend. Now just work on getting the image in focus and that would make a killer shot. ;) I would suggest make a rig that mounts the camera solid and strap it to your body tight, the camera hanging light that and a long shutter is bound for a unfocused image. I hope your 10second shot is a different one then the one you posted, the exif reads 1/30th shutter f14 iso 100 18mm.:oops:

Yeah, I actually tried it again later that day with a piece of rope tied around the camera and around my back that held the camera almost perfectly still. The problem is getting the kids to look up at the right time, to spin them at exactly the right angle, etc.

And you have to use settings like that for the most part. You need a long enough exposure that gives the background a good blur, yet short enough that it minimizes subject movement. By 10 seconds I meant the timer for the shutter went off after 10 seconds, not the length of the shot.

Remote shutter release between your teeth? ;)

Nice shot.
