Spinning – May Photo of the Month

Posted by The A-Team on

The votes are in after choosing the 5 best selections in May from the Aputure Group on Flickr.

Spinning by DJ BP won first prize, as expected. It was unanimous in both the Aputure vote and the online popular vote. He takes home $50 of free shwag from the Aputure store. We like the perspective, and have to wonder how exactly did he pull off the shot?

Update: Well now we know. From DJ himself…“The camera was attached to me (using a baby sling). Having metered the light and setting the focus, I set the camera on 2S timer pressed the shutter and started to spin the child you see in the photo. Because it was a sunny day, it was unpredictable where the image would actually be taken so I had to make a few attempts in order to capture a suitably exposed image.”

Funny enough, the photo I was rooting for/thought deserved the title, came in dead last! Oh well…competition is tough.
