Here’s a fun project you can do during the family MAKEcation (or vacation, for that matter): create a chest-camera rig so you can spin your kids around and take photos of them in flight. (Maybe if you get them super dizzy, they’ll forget the fact that you’re not taking them off the family compound this summer.)

Give ‘Em A Spin – A Fun Family Photography Project [Thanks, Udi!]

    Getting spun around like that as a kid is why my right shoulder dislocates at the drop of a hat.

    Not that it’s not fun, but keep an eye on the growing joints, folks!

      Getting spun around like that as a kid is why my father is an important part of my life to this day. Not that it’s not fun, but keep an eye on those growing relationships, folks!

      Yeah, it’s much better to hold them under their shoulders (instead of by the hands or arms) to avoid popping out joints.

    …spin my kids around like that any longer : they’re grown up now and sure they would dislocate MY shoulders !

    Good tool for great memories

    Take care.
