It’s so rewarding to have fun while thinking outside the box with your photography and have it pay off. As far as I know this is the featured image banner for GoPro in every Target store. At least every one my friends and family have been in on the west coast.
My son and I shot this at the Mission Bay playground in San Diego one morning after a bike ride. Ever since I tied a bungee cord across the swings a few years ago (pictured here) to get a unique angle with my GoPro I’ve been looking for another unique way to capture the swing set.
I’ve always loved using the 3 Way mount as a selfie stick so I figured I’f I swung us fast and high enough to get a bit inverted I could probably get a great shot.
The one thing I had to be careful with though was Z holding the mount while I held the swing chains so if I went to high he could get thrown off. We had some close calls on a few and then we just went too far.
